    I've got a couple of those. The came with my Glenlivet 12 gift set that also included 50mL samples of the 15 and 18 year old.

    Re: Where to get a Glencairn?

    I've been thinking of getting these as well for tastings and ditching my other glasses.

    Be careful with those Glencairn-shaped shotglasses. The bases are rather narrow, making them kind of tippy.

    That's where I got mine, keep an eye out I ended up with 4 for a good price, the price fluctuates from time to time. Find a good price and jump on them.

    Now mint julep cups... that's a different story (I need some but can't find a good deal).

    Re: Where to get a Glencairn?

    My normal vessel is the round Four Roses glass from their tasting bar and the Samplers and my hi-falutin' glass is the Riedel Ouverture Bourbon Glass. I picked up a pair on sale at Liquor Barn and I prefer them over the Glencairn.

    Quoting an old post I know, but I'll ask anyway.

    Which distilleries in particular? All? I've lived in KY my whole life, my dad worked for Brown-Foreman, and I still haven't been to a distillery. I've been wanting to take Woodfords "Advanced" tour.

    I've been needing a good bourbon glass for a long time. I had a small wine tumbler I used, but it broke. Was thinking about getting a glass Glencairn but if I can get one at a distillery free or a decent price I might as well wait. I don't want some overpriced gift shop crap though, hah.

    The prices at the gift shops at the distilleries aren't bad on glencairns. Not all of them carry em BT does and HH does for sure. WT does not neither does MM IIRC. Not sure about FR or the new Barton's.

    Re: Where to get a Glencairn?

    Check out local flea markets and estate sales. I bought two at an estate sale just a couple of blocks from my house. They were originally $1.00, but it was 30% off on the last day. Got them for $.70 each. Joe

    I didn't see any Glencairns at FR when i was there, but I got the last two semi-square rocks glasses they had in the shop. Semi-round I should say, a round glass with corners. Slick! I did pick up a handful of Glencairns at HH and I do love them sometimes.

    The Glencairn is a very nice glass but my go to glass is the FR glass. I also have a really large, thin walled, heavy based tumbler that is perfect sometimes. Like palming a basketball full of bourbon.

    That being said, a Glencairn is a necessary tool for increasing one's bourbon knowledge and experience. Having the Glencairn has taught me quite a bit.

    Cheers!
