Richard Brendon Diamond Cut Crystal Whiskey Glass & Decanter
Add this stunning decanter and matching glasses to your bar cart, and see how it sparkles. This beautiful diamond cut is timeless and elegant.
Note that glasses and the decanter are sold separately.
Each decanter is mouth-blown by master craftsmen in the Czech Republic from pure crystal.
This decanter comes from JoyJolt, who makes some of my favorite bar glassware. The sqirling style is chic any unique, but understated. It's stunning to look at and gets rave reviews. The stopper works well, it's easy to pour from, and it has a weighted base to keep it from tipping over easily. There's just no going wrong with this as a decanter for your home or as a gift.
This set has classic styling with elegant diamond and wedge cuts. It's Waterford crystal, so its reputation precedes it. And it comes in a presentation box, which makes it perfect as a gift.
This is an unusual set, what with a glass ship inside the horizontal decanter and maps etched on the glasses. But it's got one really cool practical twist: a stainless steel spigot. You never need to pick this one up to pour from it. You refill it from the top.
This decanter looks like it has an eerie floating glass skull inside. It comes with four skull shaped glasses, skull whiskey stones, and sits on a beautiful wooden base.
It's got a glass stopper with a rubber base for practicality, but aside from that, it's all about the cool factor. This is perfect for someone who loves the Halloween / Dia de Muertos / horror movie vibe.
Bormioli Rocco makes quality glassware. I love their glass flasks and bottles. This beautiful, stately decanter includes a personalized initial and name or word, making it a great gift or statement piece.
This is the everything-you-need set for whiskey lovers. The unique diamond shaped decanter comes to a point at the bottom, so it has a tray designed to hold it upright. The 4 whiskey glasses can sit at a tilt or upright. And the chillballs are stainless steel, designed to cool your whiskey like ice without watering it down.
This Bormioli Rocco gets mid-century flair from a beautiful etched pattern in both the glasses and the square decanter. Everything about this classic set says quality and studiness. And the glasses are a nice addition.
This is the most affordable decanter in this list, but don't let that fool you. When one of the few complaints in reviews is that it's heavy, you know it's good quality. The airtight stopper is a nice touch.
