In the early days, Raymond Davidson ordered his whisky in a wine glass when drinking at the bar. Already being in the crystal business, he had enough of this, and created what we now know as the iconic Glencairn Glass. It wasn’t until his son Paul found the glass, that this was turned into a product primarily intended for whisky trades-people. While when originally released (back in 2001), it was intended for trades people, it’s the glass many consumers use to enjoy their whisky. Raymond Davidson joins us on the podcast. We speak about the Keepers of the Quaich, the importance of glassware, and how to win your very own Glencairn with the whisky.buzz logo!
