Personalised Whisky Glass - and why I ended up with one.
I met my Father-in-law, Alex, over 25 years ago. He was a lovely Scots man and it was one evening when my "now" wife decided that I should meet the parents.
Everything was fine, we all got on and as the evening came to a close, Alex asked me if I wanted a "wee dram" to finish the evening with. I agreed and asked for a Scotch and coke. The room went quiet. It was like a scene from a cowboy film when the baddy walks in to the bar and everyone stops and stares.
"A what?" he said in a soft, Scottish accent. His tone made me feel that maybe my intentions to marry his daughter might be in jeopardy at this moment.
I quickly thought and said "no, maybe a Baileys?" Although to a Scotsman this was probably just as bad, (Baileys was probably a "girlies" drink in his eyes), it probably wasn't as bad as mixing whisky with Coke.
Fortunately the tension died and the evening continued. Not long after I went on to marry his daughter and have stayed married to her ever since and with Alex's blessing.
In that time Alex took me under his wing and introduced me to some fantastic single malt whiskies. He showed me that I couldn't mix high sugar drinks with them but if I did want to add "a little something" then a single piece of ice was acceptable.
I came to love single malt whisky (and still do) but as you can imagine, you can hardly drink it in a plastic cup or cheap glass from a superstore, so I invested in my very own personalised whisky tumbler. It is funny how much better whisky or whiskey tastes in a special glass, very much like drinking good wine, but that is another story.
Due to my love of good whisky, I have listed what I think are 5 excellent whisky glasses that can be personalised as a special gift for a special person.
If Alex had still been here I would have certainly bought him one of these as a special gift.
1. Stern Whisky Glass
This beautiful stern whisky glass is the perfect gift for a whisky drinker! I really like the simplicity of this tumbler.
This whisky glass will truly make the perfect personalised gift for any occasion, whether it be for a special birthday or as a thank you gift for a best man and with your engraved message added to the tumbler it will be an enduring and delightful memento that can be enjoyed for years to come.
2. Crystal Whisky Tumbler
I am a sucker for crystal and like the feel of the cut edges when I hold crystal in my hands and of-course, that smell of single malt and maybe an evening in-front of the fire just makes for a perfect evening.
3. Measures Tumbler
I really like this glass, reminds me of many an evening drinking whisky with Alex where a "wee dram" would turn in to at least a double measure or half a glass. What I like is that you can add someone's name for the third measure which would be appropriate in my family.
It is also an incredible price for a whisky glass that you can add personalisation to.
4. Hand Cut Diamante Heart Whisky Glasses with Swarovski Elements
I have wine glasses that were bought for me that are similar in design with the cut diamante heart. They look really smart and each glass is hand cut, hand polished and embellished with Swarovski Elements and it even comes presented in a silk lined box.
This is probably more of a glass that you would use at a more formal occasion rather than sitting in front of the fire chilling out.
5. Vintage Typography Tumbler
I like the vintage feel of this glass and the solid base. I am very much a someone who likes the feel of things so the base is smooth and fits in the palm of your hand.
The personalisation on this whisky glass will allow you to add any name up to 12 characters and a message with up to 20 characters in length. 'You are', 'superb', 'fantastic', 'excellent' are fixed text.
Great price for a nice looking whisky tumbler.
