Whiskey fans can be as passionate about their glassware as they are about what to put in it. With recent entrants like the Glencairn glass increasingly appearing in bars and distillery tasting rooms, the classic rocks or Old Fashioned glass is starting to get some competition.

Here are five of our staff’s favorite whiskey-sipping vessels from around the web.

Schott Zeiesel Paris On The Rocks Whiskey Glasses, Set of 6

The old standard. If you’re a subscriber in the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” school of design, try these Schott Zwiesel 9.5 oz rocks glasses. A the titanium- and zirconium-infused crystal, used for increased durability, means these tumblers are also less likely to actually break as well.

Glencairn Whiskey Glasses with Diamond Band, Set of 4

The Glencairn glass has begun to equal the venerable rocks glass as a standard vessel for whiskey. Its tapered opening helps with the perception of aroma, while the rounded bowl allows for evaluation of a spirit’s color. This banded design creates visual flare as well as provides extra grip.

TOAKS Titanium 450ml Cup

Of course, if you’re really interested in drinking whiskey while camping like a pro, you may want to opt for one of these lightweight, durable titanium mugs from Toaks. Foldable handles help it to pack down small, and one of our editors passionately attests to its ability to handle heavy pours of Elijah Craig in the backcountry with ease.
