The famous whisky glass, the Glencairn, has undergone a colourful makeover to mark 20 years.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Glencairn Glass,Glencairn Crystal Studio has introduced a new core range of coloured glasses.

Following the huge popularity of the limited edition black Glencairn Glass last year, whisky fans world-wide will now be able to purchase the Glencairn Glass not only in black but also in blue, red, green, and shimmering gold alongside the original clear glass.

Available both individually or as a full tasting set of six glasses, the new range of Glencairn coloured glasses has been carefully selected and created to provide visual impact in the hand and on the bar.

The range has also been designed to be used in, and to enhance, the blind tasting experience by disguising the colour of the whisky.

Since its creation by the award winning Glencairn Crystal Studio in 2000, the glass has become hugely popular around the world, with over 3 million being sold each year, across 140 different countries in all seven continents including Antarctica.

Scott Davidson, new product development director and son of Glencairn Crystal Founder, Raymond Davidson, said: “We were blown away by the massive success of our limited edition black Glencairn Glass last year which sold out almost immediately.

"So in response to public demand, our 20th anniversary gift to loyal fans of the Glencairn Glass across the world is the introduction of this colourful new range, which is here to stay.

"Not only are the coloured glasses a fun addition to any drinks cabinet, tasting your dram blind is the perfect way to develop your senses and to learn all about the wonderful world of whisky."
