Where did 2019 go? We’ll probably never know, but one thing is for sure, it’s time to get shopping. Since you’re reading this, there’s a greater than zero chance that you’ll be gifting or unwrapping a shiny new decanter this holiday season. Decanters are the one thing every whiskey lover should own, but most can be pretty generic. Many are downright awful. Who wants to put a favorite whiskey or infinity bottle in a boring decanter? No one.
Prestige Decanters, based out of Louisville, Kentucky, strives to make a unique, quality decanter that you will actually use and not just regift come next year. They’ve got over twenty different designs, including a football and a horse. You read that right. Want to really impress your derby-loving friends? Pour your bourbon out of the right end of a glass horse. While that one is easily their most unique, the globe decanter which we recently received for review makes more sense for most home bars.
The globe decanter is, you guessed it, shaped like a globe, but since there aren’t any flat parts to Earth (despite what some may say), the decanter also comes with a wooden pedestal stand in your choice of finishes. The decanter itself is mouthblown glass, durably thick but not clunky, with an elegant etching of the continents all around. If you want to personalize it further, there are several variations with different glass aircraft, ships, or insignia suspended inside. At 1000ml, it’s just large enough to pour from one-handed (think a slightly bigger Blanton’s bottle). Pouring it is easier than repositioning it on its fancy stand, but hey, we all make sacrifices to look good to our friends and family.
Because we hate shopping as much as you do, we’re going to do one lucky Drinkhacker a solid this holiday season by giving away this exact decanter from Prestige Decanters.
