Whiskey Glasses for Whiskey Drinkers
No respectable whiskey sipper would drink straight from the bottle. Sniff, sure. But drink? Never. There are a wide variety of excellent whiskey glasses out on the market, and we’ve come up with a nice selection of some of the best. Whiskey is about flavors, and those flavors come out in their full glory with the right glass and aeration of the spirit. You’re definitely going to want to give some of these glasses a shot and see which one you prefer, just like the whiskey that’s in them.
This is an excellent set of whiskey glasses for two, not only because it comes with a flask for when the party moves outdoors. The glasses have a twisted design that gives them a really unique look, and even comes with coasters. Why? Because the classy whiskey drinker does not stain the wood furniture with glass condensation.
This is a whiskey glass with a pewter initial sealed onto it. It looks a lot like a wax seal on a letter but done in metal on the side of the glass. It really makes the glass personalized and looks very classy because of the simplicity of the rest of the glass. Perfect for a whiskey drinker who likes to have their own special cup.
This whiskey glass is unique for several reasons, first, it is square rather than rounded. But the kicker is that it has a grove molded into its side that can easily hold a standard sized cigar. Perfect for a man who likes the simple things in life and wants to be able to put his whiskey and his cigar down at the same time.
This is a noser – for the uninitiated, this is a whiskey glass that is made particularly for sniffing the spirit and appreciating its aromatic notes. It’s made of stainless steel, so it’s guaranteed to last a lifetime. The outside has nice wood grain pattern or black matte. I personally think black is the way to go when it comes to sophistication, but who am I to say?
This is a set of two great whiskey glasses. The base of the glass has a black silhouette of a wilderness scene on it, and when you fill it with ice cubes (or granite or gold whiskey stones?) they almost look like mountains in the background. A really great gift for someone who loves the outdoors and loves a glass of whiskey to warm the soul.
Storing whiskey can be tricky. While most whiskey bottles are nice enough, a decanter or other form of storage is really what you want to be using if you’re a true whiskey lover. With that in mind, here’s a couple choices that will fit in the repertoire of a classy lady or gentleman nicely.
Do you know someone who likes to drink whiskey, maybe has a few bottles in the liquor cabinet, is starting to read up on the literature, but doesn’t have a decanter yet? Still drinking out of the kitchen glasses? This is the perfect gift for them, especially when paired up with the Complete Whiskey Course book.
This is a great gift for the whiskey lover who likes to drink at poker night. It lacks some of the flair and pomp of the whiskey decanter set that, frankly, might get you made fun of at poker night. Make no mistake though, it’s a beautiful decanter with a heavy build so that it can handle a few bumps. And the best part is it comes with glasses for everyone.
This whiskey decanter set belongs in a winter lodge and is extremely classy. The decanter itself is crested with a pewter stag, and two glasses have a nice pewter base as well as stag head on the side. They work very well together and are a great gift for an outdoorsman or anyone who appreciates the majesty of nature. And whiskey, of course.
WOW! This decanter set really looks amazing and would work well in a modern style dining room or bar. It has four glasses that circle a decanter, all of which have angular gold edges. The classes sit at a tilt which is a really cool visually, but also exposes the whiskey to a bit more air, making for a better drink. Taken together, this decanter and glass set is a great way to bring people together over a few glasses of the best spirit out there and is well worth checking out.
Classy things tend to go together. What comes to mind when you think of class? Cigars, whiskey, tie clips, and golf – right? This decanter brings the two items from this list together, whisky and golf. The decanter itself is shaped like a golf ball, as are the glasses – and they rest on some nice turf that is boxed in by fine grain wood. All together it makes a great decanter set for a gold and whiskey lover.
What an awesome gift! This is an oak aging barrel that you can have customized for the whiskey lover you know! Because we all know the next step in loving whiskey is trying to distill your own. This aging barrel is an essential to making good whiskey! If you’re not into the whole from scratch thing, you can also just pour in your favorite bottle of whiskey and notice the changes in flavor as the whiskey is infused with smoky oak.
Every whiskey drinker needs a flask. But sometimes you’re bringing your significant other on the hike with you, and she wants some too. It’s a little bit much to be drinking out of the same flask at this point in your relationship, so you need two cups. This set has all of the above, wrapped up in a classy leather case. Perfect for a whiskey drinker and their partner!
Sometimes whiskey drinkers are just too particular to know exactly what you should get to please them (other than some top shelf, that is.) If that’s the case with someone you know, or you’re just looking to get a nice whiskey related gift, take a look at some of these great whiskey rocks and other gifts for drinkers of the finest spirit out there!
This is a really unique gift set because it brings together two different, and yet classy beverages. On the one hand, you have bourbon barrel aged coffee beans.

Additionally, it contains six excellent whiskey rocks, and a classy wooden coaster for them. The best except nothing less.
Everybody has got to love the “bring me” series of apparel. These socks do not disappoint and carry on the legacy of hilarious sock messages.

This shirt is great for two types of whiskey people – either the bubbly whiskey drinker who is friends with everyone, in which case the shirt is a funny joke; or for the grumpy whiskey drinker who really only likes a few people, in which case it’s still a joke, just a dry one. Either way, this is a fun shirt to get someone who is into their whiskey.
These are golden whiskey stones that really jump out at you.

Whether you’re a whiskey drinker or not, this ice tray is pretty awesome, it creates perfectly spherical ice balls.

A gift like this doesn’t have to be limited to whiskey drinkers though, like I said—just imagine the possibilities around the bar!
This is the most unique whiskey drinker’s gift ever. It’s a tabletop smoker, that you can use real wood chips or herbs in, and it infuses a whiskey drink or even cocktail with a new depth of flavor.
