In our experience, the best strategy when getting a gift for a whiskey drinker is to stay away from buying an actual bottle of whiskey and steer towards things that make drinking more fun. These products are simple and beautifully designed, and will only make your booze experience better.
THE SPEAKEASY ROCKS GLASS (SET OF 4) – $54.60 (ORIGINALLY $78)
We love breaking out glasses that have a little more flair when sipping straight whiskey. The subtle, diamond wheel cut art deco inspired pattern on this set of rocks glasses feels luxurious in your hands and is subtle to the touch. Most importantly, they’re dishwasher safe.
LIQUID BODY FLASK – $49.70 (ORIGINALLY $71)
Everyone needs a solid flask and what better flask than an award-winning flask? This unique piece took home the 2014 best product design award at the New York Now design festival. Designed by The Principals, each one is slightly different, thanks to a process called hydroforming (think steel + welding + water pressure). It’s incredibly sleek, pocket-friendly, and you’ll look uber cool pulling it out for a swig. Get it in black, white, or chrome.
THE HERO/REBEL DOUBLE ROCKS GLASS SET – $49 (ORIGINALLY $59)
Perfect for the history nerd in your life, these Hero/Rebel Double Rocks Glasses each represent an iconic figure from America’s Revolutionary period. Hero = George Washington, Rebel = Thomas Jefferson, Philosopher = Benjamin Franklin, Diplomat = John Adams. Bonus: they were manufactured and sand-etched in the US of A and made in partnership with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Also, they’re dishwasher safe!
GEOMETRIC CRYSTAL SPIRITS DECANTER – $33.60 (ORIGINALLY $48)
Decanters are a great way to show off your house blend when entertaining. This eye-catching Geometric Crystal Decanter has twenty triangular sides, meaning it’s a low-tech light show in a bottle. Rest it upright or on its side and let it show off the hue of your favorite spirits.
SPIEGELAU BOURBON TASTING GLASS (SET OF 4) – $38.50 (ORIGINALLY $55)
If you’re a Bourbon lover, you need these Bourbon Tasting Glasses. Period. These are larger than traditional snifter glasses to open up the bourbon in your glass fully. We were skeptical at first, but just to make sure we tried the same bourbon side by side in one of these glasses, next to a standard rocks glass and traditional snifters. These won, no contest.
