About Glencairn

Glencairn Crystal is a world expert in innovation, design, creation and supply of premium drinks packaging – from concept to delivery. Regarded, internationally, as the finest creator of crystal decanters and glassware, our family-owned Scottish company has handcrafted prestigious decanters for some of the world’s rarest and most luxurious spirits ever released.

Based in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, Glencairn Crystal was founded by Raymond Davidson in 1981 and is now run by his sons Paul and Scott Davidson. With a team of over 70 employees, some of the company’s longest-serving craftspeople have over 40 years’ of experience in working with crystal, designing and developing pioneering glassware.

The company also produces the Glencairn Glass – the world’s favourite whisky glass – with 5 million glasses sold every year, in every corner of the globe.

The unique and stylish shape of the Glencairn Glass has been crafted to enhance the enjoyment of all whiskies by encouraging the user to fully appreciate the nose and palate of your favourite dram. The tapering mouth of the glass captures the whisky’s aromas, and the wide bowl allows the full appreciation of the whisky colour. The thistle style base is designed to be comfortable in the hand, as well as sturdy in a bar environment.

The Glencairn Crystal Glassware range is available at company’s online store and for further information please get in touch with us.
