The Raif Whisky Decanter is the sculpted defiant outcome of advanced digital design, inventive production techniques and the intimate whisky ritual.

Rebelling against traditional squat bodies and ornamental stoppers, this sleek minimalist vessel sidesteps the light, pivots on its axis, and lands its epic weight on the earth. The lean, long, svelte form of the glass plays with the Norlan design DNA, elongating and pulling at its skin. The stopper is milled, a stealth night flying form with the radar signature of an atom. 

A silent, sharp sentinel standing guard over your spirit, the decanter’s singular shape allows you, whisky aesthete, to build a nested triptych of your favorite whiskies: a rebellious sculpture for containment and expression.

  • The crystal decanter is a completely hand-made object. Due to the behavior of glass when blowing into a non-rotational metal mould, small surface defects may be present. This is one of the details that makes such an object unique. 
  • Due to variations in thickness of the glass during the mouth-blowing process, the precision machined metal lid may not perfectly align with the edges of the decanter mouth. Specific tolerances have been set with our production partners and all decanters that ship have been deemed acceptable by Norlan. 
  • Handwash with a mild detergent and non-abrasive cloth. Dry by hand. 

The Raif Whisky Decanter was developed as a sculptural object for the presentation and dispensation of one’s favorite whiskies. It is therefore not intended for the long-term storage of whisky, but for containment of whiskies that are regularly enjoyed.

Making Not Just a Decanter

Digitally designed, the glass decanter is exhaustingly brought to life over the course of five hand crafted processes involving mouth blowing glass, diamond wheel cutting, sanding, polishing, and oiling. 

Once again, we were warned not to make it. We had a vision and our Czech maker had a headache. It took six months to finalize the design, and another six months of trialing and refining the technique of cutting the mouth for the stopper. Mouth-blown glass and precision-machined metal make poor bedfellows, but marry them we would.

The decanter’s entire surface, inside and out, is born in a single slow exhale: molten crystal mouth blown into a massive hinged-steel mold. Blown, the bulb is cut off and the base cold worked flat. The mouth is so complex it required specially procured wheels to accommodate the stopper. After coaxing the glass mouth into a more exacting shape, the decanter is sand blasted in a gradient flow from the top down and finally, the matte surface oiled to a soft finish.

On the other side of the globe, the aluminum stopper went through a similar battery of trials. Edges were digitally sculpted, radii were defined and redefined in fractions of millimeters, and shock sprayed finishes were repeatedly sampled to arrive at a uniquely textured matte surface.

And with that, we step into the future perfect, eloping with the beauty of the glass technique and the optimism of machine and form.
