Whiskey drinkers probably have all the whiskey glasses they need at this point, but they might need a decanter. Some whiskey drinkers might not notice a difference between whiskey left in a bottle versus a decanter, but they make for lovely home bar decor.
These whiskey decanters would look perfect in Dad's study or Grandpa's kitchen. They're the perfect gift for whiskey lovers, and remember, there are some health benefits to drinking whiskey (in moderation, of course).
Why Use a Decanter
Experts say there is no point in using a whiskey decanter. Since whiskey doesn't age in a bottle like wine, advancedmixology.com says there is no functional purpose of using a whiskey decanter. However, don't let that stop you from buying a decanter. If you think your bottle of Old No. 7 will look aesthetically pleasing in a unique decanter, go for it.
Whiskey decanters look fabulous on bar carts, in home offices and truly make a statement anytime you're hosting guests. Plus, buying a whiskey decanter set ensures you'll have a matching glass (or several) to improve your home bar set up.
We recommend whiskey stones if you truly want to buy a "useful" whiskey gift. They are perfect for chilling drinks without watering them down from ice cubes. They're made of granite and kept in the freezer until you're ready to use them.
Of course, some people say they're useless as well, but it must depend on the brand and how long they were prepped before using.
