Glencairn Fun Facts

One With The Glass

With no physical Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival possible this year, a digital one was created and as part of this the four short listed debut authors were approached to create a short story inspired by Glencairn Crystal.

Science Behind The Glass

Glencairn Crystal Studio is responsible for the design and creation of the famous Glencairn Glass – the official glass for whisky.
