There are many different types of glass that are quite common in bars around the world, but there’s one style that commands a hefty 95 cent premium: the old fashioned whiskey glass. For anyone who likes their whiskey on the rocks or in a highball, this type of tumbler is a must-have.
The whiskey glass is important, a proud symbol of the American spirit
There are many myths and legends surrounding the whiskey glass. One such story concerns a man who had an altercation with his neighbor. Fearing for his safety, he took to the road and stopped at a bar for a quick drink. The bartender said it was ok to pour himself a bourbon in a old fashioned glass. Ever since then, the old fashioned whiskey glass has been known as the drink of choice for testosterone driven men. The whiskey glass is special because it is one of the few pieces of Americana that can be found all over the world. Whether sipping your favorite smooth bourbon or sparkling wine, crushing ice and mixing it with sugar and water to make your own cocktail, or simply enjoying a cold beer, there is nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a cold, juicy spirit wrapped in a polished old fashioned glass.
Why most people call whiskey as Scotch whiskey instead of Irish whiskey
Scotch whisky is distilled in Scotland, while Irish whiskey is distilled in Ireland. Scotch whisky generally has a higher abv (alcohol content) and is more flavorful than Irish whiskey. Whiskey is definitely one of the most popular drinks in the world. It’s no wonder, then, that there are so many different types of whiskey out there. While most people know about Scotch whiskey and Irish whiskey, there are actually other types of whiskey too. One type is old-fashioned whiskey, and this is what we’ll be talking about today.
