Glencairn Club

The Glencairn Club is probably the easiest club in the world to get into. The only fee is the one you pay for a Glencairn glass, and yes, it must be a Glencairn glass, and you might even be able to get one free.  The minimal price you pay for that glass, usually around $11 is all you need, and some whiskey or any other barrel aged spirit to fill it with.  Simply snap a photo and put it on Instagram using the tag #glencairnclub – follow our account @GlencairnClub if you wish to see or need suggestions.

This is just for fun, and its a great way to show everyone else in this club what you are drinking. We hope this will be a following from around the world so we can see what someone from the other side of the planet is drinking which we may not have heard of or had access to.

In 2001 the Glencairn glass was developed by Glencairn Crystal in Scotland.  It was designed specifically for drinking whisky, but works well with any spirit, especially those aged in a barrel.  The design is preferred by master blenders and aids during tasting. It is best when it is only filled to about 2-3 ounces or no more than 90ml, but it can hold up to 5 ounces or 150ml.
