Im not a huge fan of whisky but I’m a big fan of supporting talented creatives just starting out who also make and design beautiful things. Case in point Denver and Liely and their beautifully designed whisky glass…
The Denver & Liely (D&L) Whisky Glass came about when Designers Denver Cramer and Liely Faulkner teamed up and began an exploration into the diverse and often mysterious world of whisky. Wanting to improve on the drinking experience by exploring the deepest, darkest depths of their whisky collections the Denver & Liely Whisky Glass was born.
Traditionally the tumbler has been seen as the vessel of choice for the majority of whisky drinkers and the ‘whisky snifter’ relegated to the small group of true whisky tasters. D&L have now combined these worlds.
The hand-blown shape of the D&L Whisky Glass combines the benefits of taste and smell associated with a traditional whisky snifter with the versatility and style of a classic tumbler.
The wide base maximises the surface area of a standard measure, funneling the aromas through the tapered body to the optimally sized opening. This reveals the whisky’s full character.
The D&L whisky glass is perfect for however you choose your drink – Neat / on-ice / cocktails – whisky the way you like.
Its seems this is where design, intellect and hard work combine perhaps with a few drinks along the way!
Cheers to these guys and their awesome design!
