Inspired by nature, digitally crafted, and meticulously refined with master distiller Jim McEwan, the Norlan Whisky Glass has been designed to capture whisky's complex flavors and aromatics and deliver them to the senses like never before. 

The unique double-walled structure offers a seamless integration of a scientifically performing inside with an aesthetically beautiful outside, for the perfect whisky drinking experience. 

The glass is formed by mouth-blowing borosilicate glass into two separate molds: one for the inner wall, and one for the outer wall. When both volumes are ready, the inner wall is inserted into the outer, at which time the rims are joined by spinning the glass rapidly across a linear flame. 

A distinctive result of the double-walled construction is the intensity of color added to spirits in the bowl, which is further carried up into the rim of the glass.

Norlan Whisky Glass - Original

Norlan Whisky Glass - VAILD Edition


The Norlan Whisky Glass was designed to improve the aroma and taste of whisky enjoyed neat. We do not recommend using ice or whisky stones in the glass. 

We do not recommend storing the glass in the freezer because of the risk of thermal shock.

Please also note that the glass should not be placed in a microwave or oven.

While the glasses passed a multitude of dishwashing tests, we recommend you always hand wash and dry your glasses with a non-abrasive cloth to ensure their longevity. 

No. That color you see on the rim is the brilliant whisky contained within. It's a great effect. 

The inside of the VAILD edition is clear borosilicate glass. The shimmering gold is the result of light becoming trapped within the blackened walls of the glass and refracting through the whisky. 

The Norlan Whisky Glass weighs approximately 125 grams (4.4 oz). It is an intentionally lightweight design made from double-walled borosilicate glass.

While the Norlan Whisky Glass was developed for the appreciation of whisky, we’ve found that it performs equally well for any spirit containing a high ABV where nosing is an important aspect of the drinking experience.

While we do not offer engraving services, any engraving specialist should be more than happy to work on these glasses.

Note: The black edition of the Norlan Whisky Glass is coated in a matte black lacquer. Engraving the exterior will remove this finish.

The Norlan Whisky Glass is sold as a set of two. You'll receive them in a meticulously designed and elegant tube. The clear edition includes a black microfiber polishing cloth to keep your glasses shiny and clear for your whisky inspection.

Features at a Glance

Hybrid Design

The perfect synthesis of a tumbler form, with an exceptionally improved nosing glass performance.

Aesthetics

A modern, lightweight design featuring double-walled glass, combining a faceted base with a curved inner bowl.

Social Ergonomics

Specifically designed to allow you to inhale and drink the spirit without tilting your head back too deeply.

Fluid Dynamics

Aerates better than any other glass, reducing ethanol intensity, requiring less water dilution for richer aromas.

Scent Delivery

Focuses and diffuses the aromatics to the nose and mouth, revealing hidden flavors.

Expert Involvement

Meticulously refined with master distiller Jim McEwan over the course of a four day workshop.

Aeration

Through specially developed protrusion forms inside the glass — adapted through studying bio-mimicry — when swirled around the glass the fluid forms a standing wave shape, which increases the surface to air ratio and rate of oxidization. The effect here is that considerably more ethanol evaporates. This resulting increase in volatility allows the whisky to become significantly more expressive. This feature is an invention of the Norlan glass — no other whisky glass will do this for you.

Aroma Focus

The second main performance feature is the shape of the inner walls, which close as they rise and then flare out again so as not to hit the nose. The height and diameter of the smallest aperture focuses the aromatics to the nose while simultaneously diffusing the ethanol away from the face, fantastically improving the taste of your whisky.

“Fifty-three years in this business and still there are some things that surprise you. This is the best glass I’ve ever used... Better than the glass I test my own whiskies with."

— Jim McEwan, Master Distiller

Advantages over existing Glasses

The casual drinker and aficionado alike commonly enjoy whisky or bourbon in an “old- fashioned” tumbler, a wide open-brimmed glass intended for iced cocktails. Many connoisseurs prefer a narrower aperture of the brim, opting for a tasting (or nosing) glass—a stemmed tulip-shaped snifter that concentrates the aromas and allow for inspection of the spirit’s color without marking the glass’ bowl with fingerprints. 

We took these two preferences to heart and through an extensive process of analyzing fluid dynamics and flavor transfer, iterative design, and expert feedback, created an entirely new whisky glass.

Copitas

Nosing glasses often concentrate the shape of the vapor in such a way that they tightly focus it, causing the ethanol to punch into the eyes and nose. A significant downside to using a nosing glass is that it changes the drinking experience to an introspective process, whereby the head is tilted up and back, cutting the drinker off from his surroundings.

Tumblers

A tumbler, on the other hand, allows one to sip while maintaining eye contact; a cool social glass. The social advantage of this is obvious, however the wide opening of the glass diffuses the aromatics of the spirit too widely, fading and flattening out the unique aromas of the spirit away from the nose—the drinker’s first and primary sensory point.
