5 Favorites: Whiskey Glass Roundup

Issue 11 · The Celtic Angle · March 16, 2012

An appreciation of whiskey is not limited to the Scots: my Swedish parents always keep whiskey in their liquor cabinet (it's the preferred drink of my father and his friends). Early on, my husband, Brandon, figured out a way to win my father over—by bringing him a special bottle every time we visit Sweden.

Here are five of our favorite (high and low ball) whiskey glasses.

Above: The Top Class 12.25 Ounce High Ball Glass by Luigi Bormioli is $5.19 at Bloomingdale's.
