We take a look at some of the coolest and unique whiskey products available for the connoisseurs out there. If you are wondering what to get your Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch loving friends out there, these can all work as some last minute Christmas present ideas. As a Bourbon enthusiast myself, I can personally attest that I would love to add any of these products to my collection.
Whiskey Decanter with Handblown Boat
Class in a decanter – a hand blown brilliantly handcrafted container for your whiskey. The ground glass stopper creates a seal to last a lifetime, so you don’t have to worry about pouring your favorite scotch or bourbon into this guy. A stainless steel spigot to make sure your drink never tastes like plastic.
One of the most crucial parts of your whiskey collection – the glasses you drink out of. There are a lot of options to choose here, and I am including the three that I personally find the coolest. The first (on the left) is aesthetically pleasing by giving the glass a unique tilt. The second comes with a steel ball that you chill in the freezer and allows you to cool your whiskey without watering it down. The rotating of the ball gets everything mixed well while making the glass unique. Finally on the right is the glass set that I personally use. Not only is the look elegant, it helps spread the bourbon out and has a barrier between the inner glass and outer glass. This separation allows you to hold your glass without the fear of your hands warming the whiskey.
Silicon Glass Molds
If you are someone who likes to drink your whiskey on the rocks, this is a mandatory item. I personally haven’t turned back after getting myself these large ice cube molds. These molds allow you to push out any air bubbles in order to get the clearest, strongest cube. These cubes wont break in your cub and will last far longer than your average cube. This means you can chill and spread out your drink without worrying about watering it down.
Whiskey Elements Stick
This one sounds extremely intriguing to me since I have never used something like this before. According to Time & Oak, you can enhance the flavor of your whiskey by dropping the cask enhancer into a bottle for a minimum of 24 hours. They say that special curing and laser cutting methods on real oak wood draw out the rich flavor in the liquids. I personally just placed an order for myself and will have to see if it turns my Makers Mark into Makers 46.
This is another unique one as it allows you to flavor your whiskey with this smoker made by Crafthouse. The smoking box is advertised to reinvigorate your drink with a complexity and depth using actual wood smoke. You can experiment with nuts, cheeses, dried herbs, spices and more.
While I have never tried something like this myself, I know of individuals who swear by the ability to smoke their drinks either through a process like this, or by infusing it into their ice cubes.
Man Crates Whiskey Appreciation Crate
The ultimate whiskey gift set made by Man Crates. This package comes with a personalized glass decanter and a matching pair of personalized rocks tumblers. Along with the personalized decanter and glasses, this package comes with 2 Tovolo ice sphere molds, 2 slate coasters, and a 33-dram whiskey drinking journal. You will be hard-pressed to find a whiskey lover out there that wouldn’t be happy to get this as a gift this holiday season.
