These are perfect gifts for whiskey, scotch, and bourbon lovers, whether you're looking for custom glasses for yourself or as a meaningful gift for someone special. A personalised glass is a luxurious way to celebrate the occasion of a special moment for important friends and family. 

We've chosen to create an exclusive range of whiskey glasses and decanters that will allow you to express your own style and personality. Each glass features a unique design, allowing you to show off your favourite drink in a truly personalised way. 

Our classic Jacob Whiskey Glass features a diamond-cut glass design which dates back to the early twentieth century.  This vintage looking glass is the perfect piece to add to your home bar and will perfectly compliment and elevate any whiskey or scotch collection. 

We're working on our newest addition to our Nouvelle Glass collection, which we expect to be available in August 2022 - The Glencairn Whisky Glass. It is evenly balanced in hand and its tapered mouth guides every aspect of the whisky's flavour into your senses. This glass is great for picking up the subtle nuances of your favourite dram.

Engraving Your Personalised Whisky Glass

We at Nouvelle Glass have built our reputation on our high quality personalisation services. We take great pride when we prepare, personalise and present your gift items. We understand that your gifts are bought to mark important life events, and everything we do will last a lifetime.

How Do We Engrave Whiskey Glasses? 

Our personalisation service allows you to add your own custom engraved text. Our laser etching can be done on your choice of Nouvelle whiskey glass to create the perfect present for those looking for a truly bespoke personalised gift.  A whiskey glass with initials is a popular choice, however you can also show off a name, title, or special date - transforming your Nouvelle Glass into a stylish and unique item that will quickly become the favourite drinking glass in the kitchen cabinet.

Each whiskey, scotch or bourbon glass is deeply etched creating a stunning piece of art, creating an original gift idea for any occasion. Perfect for whisky lovers!   Personalized whiskey glasses are an excellent way to show off your personality. A custom whisky glass makes a great gift for any occasion, including birthdays, anniversaries, a wedding gift, or just because you want to!

Our Presentation

Our packaging is designed to create a memorable first impression.

Your Nouvelle Glass comes in a beautiful white dust bag made from organic cotton muslin,  When muslin reaches the end of its life, it is biodegradable.  Inside we pack our glassware in a purposely designed cardboard sleeve that is not only strong, but is also sustainable. 

You can also choose to present your personalised whiskey glass in an elegant black Gift Box with ribbon and a personalised Gift Card.  We chose the classic black and white signature packaging design of Nouvelle Glass' own brand, for sophisticated and classic aesthetic. These luxurious packaging options not only enhance the quality of your gift, they're also part of our sustainability mission.

How to pick your Whiskey Glass 

Do whiskey glasses make a difference?

Yes they do! There are many types of whiskey glasses available, each with its own purpose. For example, a shot glass is ideal for mixing drinks, while a double old fashioned whiskey glass is perfect for sipping whiskey neat. Whichever type you choose, we guarantee that your gift will be enjoyed by all.

What type of glass is best for whiskey?

If you love the smell of good whiskey, then a Glencairn is definitely the best choice. The shape of the glass maximises the aromas released by your favourite liquor. The broad base holds more liquid than most glasses, which means you won't have to worry about running out of your favourite drink. It's a good option for tasting whiskey, as it keeps the aromas intact.

A Rocks or Tumbler Glass

A tumbler is an old fashioned type of whiskey glass. It is often associated with the movie industry, and is a symbol of elegance and sophistication. Tumblers are made of crystal and are usually shaped like a cylinder. They come in different sizes, and are sometimes called rocks. We recommend using a tumbler or Rocks glass (or sometimes a double old fashioned whiskey glass) for drinking whiskey neat. However a tumbler or rocks glass is great for serving mixed drinks, as you won't need to worry about getting too much liquid inside. 

The wide mouth allows you to pour your favourite beverage right into the glass. The shape also works well for cocktails, and the straight sides mean there’s less chance of spilling when you're enjoying your drink. If you prefer to sip on your whiskey neat, the straight sides will help keep the aroma contained.

Glencairn Glass

A balloon glass is a type of drinking glass designed specifically for sipping whisky, cognac, brandy or other spirits. The balloon shape creates an airtight seal around the mouth of the glass, allowing the aroma of the spirit to fill the room while keeping out unwanted odours. The bulbous base of the glass helps warm the contents of the glass before it reaches the lips.

This whiskey glass is perfect for those who enjoy the taste of whiskey. It is shaped to maximise the aroma and flavour of your favourite drink. The broad base and narrower rim funnels the aromas towards you for a complete tasting experience, while the shape allows you to swirl the glass in your hands, opening up the aromas even further.  Due to its size, the Glencairn is the perfect glass for learning how to swirl whisky too, a practice commonly used to open up the aromas of whisky for full appreciation.
