Entry Description

Inspired by nature, digitally crafted, and meticulously refined with a master distiller, the Norlan Whisky Glass was designed to capture whisky's complex flavors and aromatics, delivering them to the senses like never before. With the aid of specially developed protrusion forms inside the glass, whisky swirled within the bowl forms a standing wave shape, increasing the surface to air ratio and oxidization rate, reducing the presence of ethanol for more expressive aromas. The double-walled construction allows for a highly functional interior to be combined with a beautiful modern exterior.
