Following the huge popularity of the limited edition black Glencairn glass last year, whisky fans world-wide will now be able to purchase the Glencairn glass not only in black but also in blue, red, green, and shimmering gold, alongside the original clear glass.

Available individually or as a full tasting set of six glasses, the new range of coloured glasses has been carefully selected and created for its visual impact. It has also been designed to be enhance the blind tasting experience, by disguising the colour of the whisky inside the glass.

Since its creation by the award-winning Glencairn Crystal Studio in 2000, it has grown to fame as the iconic whisky glass around the world today, with over 3 million being sold each year, across 140 different countries in all seven continents, including Antarctica.

Scott Davidson, new product development director and son of Glencairn Crystal’s founder, Raymond Davidson, commented: “We were blown away by the massive success of our limited edition black Glencairn Glass last year which sold out almost immediately. So, in response to public demand, our 20th anniversary gift to loyal fans of the Glencairn Glass across the world is the introduction of this colourful new range, which is here to stay.

“Not only are the coloured glasses a fun addition to any drinks cabinet, tasting your dram blind is the perfect way to develop your senses and to learn all about the wonderful world of whisky.”

The new range of coloured Glencairn Glasses can be purchased individually at £8 each, or in a presentation box featuring the full colour range tasting set of five glasses, plus the original clear glass, at £60. Available at The Glencairn Crystal online store and then also from other retailers later this year.
