Stunning Inverness Crystal 0.8L Engraved Whiskey Decanter
This Crystal Engraved Whiskey Decanter screams grandeur. The lead content also provides a much higher index of light refraction than normal glass, and consequently much greater “sparkle.” This piece has a brilliant, silvery appearance and a ringing clink, compared to the lesser quality of ordinary glass.
Bob’s Locks master engravers give you the choice to scribe a logo or personal message onto the panel of this Crystal Whiskey Decanter. This personal touch turns the Engraved Whiskey Decanter into a premium individualistic gift for that someone special.
Why do you put scotch in a decanter?
It’s for looks mostly!
When you decant red wine, you are trying to do two things: separate the sediment from the wine and allow the wine to breathe. Over time, sediment in the wine will separate and settle at the bottle of the bottle. By decanting, you are pouring the wine into another container, the decanter, so that you may leave that sediment behind in the bottle. This is not an issue for whisky.
While it’s good to let scotch breathe a little in your glass, with or without the addition of water, putting it in a decanter is mostly for looks (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). Sometimes it’s nice to have a display in which you have whisky in a decanter without all the commercial labels.
