Designed for whiskey lovers, the wobbling glasses feature a convex base that keeps them tilted while at rest. Not only does make them look incredibly chic, but it ensures it’s plenty easy to swirl your spirits, just like a regular James Bond.

This aeration will allow you to unlock new flavors and aromas in your drink while also adding a little drama to the overall sipping experience. The glasses are commonly used for scotch or bourbon but are also great for wines, cognac, brandy, and anything else that benefits from a little breather. 

The glass that need no introduction. The famous glencairn glass is a glass engineered to really allow proper savoring the taste and complexity of fine whisky.

You can see the spirits well, the glass tapers towards the top to concentrate the smell when you nose it, and the stem removes any unintentional heat to the spirit.
