On a bitterly cold December night in Toronto, a group of likeminded gentlemen found themselves in possession of a fine bottle of Oban, received and shared as a gift. The tasting experience was so agreeable, that it was henceforth a regular event recognized as scotch club.
Gourmet meals and dessert pairings were added to the agenda and further evolved the nights into a pillar of each man's calendar. The club is the haven for our work weary souls to sit back, sip on a dram, listen to and discuss ideas, explore music, and share in the revelry.
On the first year anniversary of the club, there was a consensus that something truly special had been discovered, and that there was now a responsibility to spread it throughout the world's wide interweb. This is a site for whisky aficionados. It is our repository of taste experiences, our thoughts on fine malts, and other scotch related news. Herein we pledge to share our opinions (irreverent though they may be) and our undying fellowship with all those who venture into this space.
The name Glencairn has, for years, been associated with prestigious glass and crystal pieces for corporate and business events, industry conventions, festivals, special interest groups and traditional organizations.
That experience conceived the company's namesake, the Glencairn Glass. It was styled by Glencairn Crystal to be the perfect marriage of form and function expressly to maximize the experience of scotch whisky tasting. The Glencairn Glass has been embraced by whisky lovers young and old, the world over.
