Details

The perfect gift for the whiskey lover in your life, this gift set includes two Riedel crystal single malt whiskey glasses and Helen Arthur's The Single Malt Whisky Companion hardcover book.

In early 1992, a panel of Scotch whiskey experts convened at Riedel's headquarters in Austria to test a range of nineteen different glass shapes. On the basis of this first selection, Georg Riedel undertook further research with the help of master distillers in Scotland. This research resulted in a glass that is an elongated thistle shape on a truncated stem. The design incorporates a small, slightly out-turned lip which directs the spirit onto the tip of the tongue, where sweetness is perceived, and serves to emphasize the elegant creaminess of top quality single malt whiskey.

The Single Malt Whisky Companion provides information on every major Scottish distillery and their single malts as well as the premier whiskeys from Ireland and Japan. At the heart of the book is a comprehensive directory that features brand-by-brand coverage of more than 100 major distilleries in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Japan. Each brand is identified with a full-color photograph of the bottle and label, and a summary of key information. A resource guide offers a list of suppliers and notable pubs, restaurants, and hotels with extensive whiskey collections where one can savor a fine single malt. Covering 500 years of Scottish tradition associated with this unique beverage, this is the essential guide to enjoying the finest premier single malts available.
