7 Excellent Gifts for Whiskey Lovers

Whiskey glasses for gifts

1) Whiskey Glass

Can Irish whiskey taste better from a nice glass? We think so, yes! Whiskey glasses are always a welcome whiskey gift, as the shape of the glass can affect the smell and taste of the whiskey.

A tulip-shaped glass will capture the olfactory notes and improve the whiskey drinking experience. Heavy tumblers, on the other hand, will add some gravitas to drink.

No matter the size or shape of the glass you get, a set of glasses dedicated to whiskey is going to titillate any whiskey drinker and bring a smile to their face.

2) Whiskey Flask

Whiskey fans sometimes like to take their whiskey on the road, and that makes a flask the best gift. Whether they like to take the occasional sip or add a bit of whiskey to their morning coffee, a flask that is rustproof, BPA-free and made from stainless still is the perfect gift for those who love whiskey.

Flasks are especially useful for outdoor aficionados who do not feel like taking whiskey bottles on their next camping trip and only want a couple of sips of their favourite Woodford reserve to keep warm.

3) Whiskey Decanter

The variety of decanter styles is what makes them the best whiskey gifts. Other liquids, like red wine, make use of a decanter to aerate the wine, however, whiskey does not need any preparation before consumption.

So why do you use a decanter for whiskey?

Well, it is all about presentation! A full, glass decanter adds a certain look to your collection of liqueurs, and you can also use a decanter to make a unique blend of whiskey.
