Glencairn Crystal releases Glencairn Pipette

Scottish crystal company behind the Glencairn Glass has launched the Glencairn Pipette, the perfect addition for whisky lovers to add a drop or two of water to their favourite dram.

The family team behind Glencairn Crystal Studio appreciate that adding water to whisky can help to enhance the flavours and aromas in your go-to dram. Now selling more than 3.5 million Glencairn Glasses around the world each year, the team saw a desire for a pipette to complete the experience for its customers. 

The handblown glass Glencairn Pipette is designed to be the ideal length for the Glencairn Glass and holds 1ml of water. Weighted at the top with a miniature Glencairn Glass, the pipette is fashioned to be comfortable in the hand, whilst allowing better regulation of the amount of water added, with its precisely engineered control-aperture set within a wide bulb at the upper end.

Scott Davidson, Glencairn Crystal’s new product development director, commented: “Our business is built on family values and we pride ourselves on our strong relationship with the Glencairn Glass community of followers. We are always open to feedback and new ideas and after listening to our customers, we are delighted to introduce the new Glencairn Pipette as the perfect partner to the Glencairn Glass. For those who love a splash of water with their whisky, our pipette will enable the drinker to add a little drop at a time and will prevent the risk of drowning their favourite dram with too much!” 

The Glencairn Pipette costs £6 and is also available to buy in a set with a Glencairn Glass (£11) or in a set with both a Glencairn Glass and water pitcher (£22) via the Glencairn Crystal online shop.

This year marks the 40th birthday of Glencairn Crystal Studio. Founded by Raymond Davidson in 1981, the company is not only synonymous with the famous Glencairn Glass, but has also become a world expert in the design, creation and manufacture of high-end crystal and glassware decanters, often for the worlds’ rarest and most exclusive spirits.
