    Re: How Did You Break Your Glencairn Today Thread

    I've only had one broken glass... and my daughter broke it while doing dishes. Any future broken glasses will be my fault because no one will wash them anymore.

    Methinks you guys should be drinking more. A broken glass means...it's time for another.

    I don't use glencairns. I use the Bulleit Bourbon, heavy bottom, thick rim glass. Those things are indestructible.

    Just got my first 6 today, I will protect them (and their contents) with any means necessary.

    Re: How Did You Break Your Glencairn Today Thread

    I always thought the point about the Glencairn is its stability and practical indestructibility. Are you guys throwing these in the fireplace?

    Now Reidel stemware is another problem entirely ...

    I broke a handful of drinking glasses in a move where they weren't packaged well, but that's been my only incident. Pint glasses are another story.

    Ditto on the wine glasses. I usualy break 'em while washing them.

    I use Ridel bourbon glasses/snifters/and lowball glasses. I haven't broken a whiskey glass in a few years.

    You guys must be hell on glasses.

    I have a habit of talking with my hands and I've been known to knock my drink over when intoxicated. I've knocked over a reidel a couple times doing this but haven't broke one yet

    Re: How Did You Break Your Glencairn Today Thread

    My whole family (and many of my friends) talk with their hands... I don't like stemless wine glasses, so I stick with wineglasses by Libbey for the big family events...

    My whiskey glasses are generally all short, wide and durable. It's just better that way. I have a Glencairn for tasting, but it spends most of its time hiding away from my tender mercies...

    I have 4 GC's and none have broke. My wife once droped one on the kitchen floor and not a scratch. Wine glasses break, not GC's. Maybe your fiance thinks you drink too much.
