    Glencairn Whiskey Glass

    Any recommendations on where to buy these?

    I just broke one of the two I own and would like to replace it. My searches online are only finding overseas retailers but I would prefer to buy here in the USA and hopefully save on shipping charges.

    Thanks,
    MT

    Blender's Glasses from Heaven Hill

    Would you be interestd in Glencairn glasses from the Heaven Hill Distillery, complete with the HH logo or the logo of one of several HH bottlings?

    If so, Bettye Jo (screen name: Boone) can give you a phone number to call to place an order. I had it, but I lost it. Come to think of it, it may be possible to order through the HH website, but it wasn't, back when I ordered mine.

    Re: Blender's Glasses from Heaven Hill

    Yes, I would definitely be interested in Glencairn glasses from HH.

    I checked their website but didn't find any info about them. Can I get some details before calling...like prices, shipping charges, which logos are available? Do all Glencairn glasses have the same design? I really like the ones I use now and I would like to buy the same type.

    Back during the holiday season, Binny's had Glencairns at their downtown Chicago store. I picked up a couple to add to the two I already had. The new ones are slightly different than my first two - the new glasses are flat on the bottom, where the old ones had a dip in the center. The new ones are easier to clean.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    That's exactly what I'm looking for! Do you know what they sell for and what logos are available?

    Shoot...I have not bought one, all of my glasses were given to me Won a trivia contest and at the grand opening ...

    Dave just bought some not long ago and so did Sweetmeats...They will tell us the price.

    The logo's available, Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, Old Fitz., Henry McKenna and HH...

    They use the Glencairn glasses in the "Taste of Heaven"---barrel shaped, tasting room, located inside the BHC That is where this picture was taken

    I wish I could recall exactly (from December, 2004), but maybe I'll be close enough.

    There were two prices. The HH glass is etched (I hope that's the right word), while the others are imprinted. I'll say the HH glass was $9 and the others $7, but I could be off a dollar either way.

    BTW, judging from Bettye Jo's list, they've added one logo, the Old Fitz, since I bought mine. Now I don't have a complete set any more.
