Norlan Whisky Glass - Original
Norlan Whisky Glass - VAILD Edition
Designed in 2015 by co-founder Sruli Recht, the glass was further refined with the help of legendary master distiller Jim McEwan on Scotland’s Isle of Islay. Since being released, nearly ½ million Norlan Whisky Glasses have been sold worldwide, with the glass consistently ranking in online surveys as one of the best whisky glasses to buy.
Produced entirely by hand from lightweight borosilicate glass, the design combines a scientifically performing inside with an aesthetically beautiful outside. The result is a nosing glass unlike any other; the perfect vessel for you or the fine spirit enthusiast in your life.
An eye-catching form combining a modern exterior with a functional interior.
A specially designed interior serves to eliminate ethanol burn and deliver aromatics better than any other glass.
A unique, lightweight design featuring double-walled borosilicate glass.
Advantages over other glasses
Nosing glasses often concentrate the shape of the vapor in such a way that they tightly focus it, causing the ethanol to punch into the eyes and nose, and concealing the aromatics.
A cool social glass, the wide opening of a tumbler diffuses the aromatics of the spirit too widely, fading and flattening them out. This results in a diminished nosing and tasting experience.
My husband loves them! He says they give off more aroma and the glasses are insulated so the whiskey stays at the same temperature.Sylvia S.

No. That color you see on the rim is the brilliant whisky contained within. It's a great effect.
The inside of the VAILD edition is clear borosilicate glass. The shimmering gold is the result of light becoming trapped within the blackened walls of the glass and refracting through the whisky.
