The day has arrived Pioneers – the last day of our Ten Days of Gifts countdown to Christmas! We hope our holiday gift guide for the whiskey aficionado in your life made things at least a little bit easier for you this holiday season! But if you’re finding yourself still stressing over a gift for the whiskey-lover who has everything, not to worry, because we still have one trick up our sleeve. Introducing the glass that every self-proclaimed whiskey expert should have in his/her wet bar – the Glencairn Whiskey Glass.

Available at pretty much any glassware store including Crate and Barrel, Bed Bath & Beyond, or, for those Bay Area folks, at Menlo Park’s Beltramo’s Wines & Spirits, the Glencairn Glass is easy to pick up on your way home from work today (yes, we are all about convenience here). So why the Glencairn glass? Well, besides its extremely fancy name that just sounds classy and very Don Draper-esque, the Glencairn accentuates the nose, helps aerate the whiskey with its wide base, and helps minimize the amount of alcohol inhaled as you sip. Basically, it is the premier glass used to taste whiskey.

Pair the Glencairn with a bottle of Lost Republic and voila! Christmas shopping finally done! Oh.. and treat yourself to a glass or two while you’re at it. You deserve it after this busy December.
