Just like wineglasses, the shape of your whiskey glass can influence the way your tipple tastes.
Although there is no definitive answer for what kind of glass to go for as it changes depending on how you like your drink. Look to highball glasses if you’re a fan of whiskey cocktails, a weighted rocks tumbler for a classic look or if you take your whiskey seriously you’ll want a NEAT or Glencairn style glass.
Luckily there are endless options to choose from when it comes to taking your bar cart to the next level and to help, below, we are taking a look at some of our favourites.
