Discover the perfect whiskey and bourbon glass or whiskey glasses complete with tailor-made boxes. We have crystal and glass whiskey glasses to suit any preference. A whisky glass is a style of glass shaped to enrich the experience of consuming and nosing whisky. The most favoured glasses feature a bulbous body shape which lets aromas be directed through a narrow rim. Some of the most popular whisky glasses are the tulip glass, the Glencairn glass, the whisky tumbler, the highball glass, the snifter glass and the NEAT glass. For the more discerning whisky drinker, finding the perfect one for you can be significant, and here at Muldale, we aim to offer the finest whiskey glasses for you to enjoy.

What is the difference between whisky and whiskey?
The correct spelling of whisky, or whiskey is generally based on where you live, or where you buy yours from. ‘Whisky’ is generally used in Scotland and by Scottish distillers, whereas ‘whiskey’ is from Ireland.
The American spelling of ‘whiskey’ is believed to be due to the large number of historical Irish immigrants setting up distilleries throughout the US. Although the legal spelling is ‘whisky’, whiskey is generally preferred.

Types of Whisky Glasses:
Copita whisky glass
The tulip-shape of copita glass makes this the perfect tasting glass to help you choose your whisky. The bowl-shaped glass provides the perfect setting for whisky aromas to circulate, travelling through a narrow rim - perfect for appreciating the nuance of each different whisky.
Glencairn whisky glass
Whilst similar in shape to the copita whisky glasses, the Glencairn whisky glass is favoured by those who prefer a shorter stem. The size of the Glencairn whisky glass creates the perfect learning experience for whisky-swirling - used to release the aromas from the drink.
The most common whisky glass is the traditional tumbler shape. Once you’ve tested your whisky, the tumbler is the perfect option for enjoying your chosen malt. The wide rim and robust base allows you to simply enjoy the whisky experience - with or without ice.
Crystal whisky glasses
Although crystal whisky glasses aren’t a particular shape, the high-end finish and higher density adds to the overall sensory experience of drinking whisky. Crystal whisky glasses also make the most perfect display glasses. Here you can also choose your favourite dram glass.
Snifter whisky glass
With a history rooted in gentlemen's clubs, the snifter glass is commonly used for brandy but becoming increasingly popular with whisky drinkers alike.
