To find the best way to design and manufacture the perfect whiskey glass its best to seek the expertise and advice from the source: Master Scottish distillers. That's how Austrian glass maker Riedel developed this definitive single malt whiskey glass. It features a deep bowl on a short, pedestal stem. When we looked at its flared lip and curved profile we could actually see how it resembled a Scottish thistle. The result of these efforts and attention to detail has rendered what we consider the best glass ever produced to enjoy a fine whiskey.
