A WHISKY glass that’s become a firm favourite with Scotch fans will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year with the official opening of its expanded factory and its first series of podcasts.
Raymond Davidson, who founded Glencairn Crystal Studio, wanted a glass that would “encourage the user to fully appreciate the nose and palate of a whisky, whilst being an aesthetically pleasing object”.
Now, more than three million of the glasses are sold each year in 140 countries.
Davidson’s sons – managing director Paul and new product development director Scott – now run the business and have refurbished and extended its site in East Kilbride to cope with rising demand, with the work undertaken by local businesses.
The family firm will release new versions of the glass this year, while also undertaking a special fundraising initiative for its chosen charities.
