The Complete Guide To Whiskey Decanters
Imagine yourself in a sleek suit sitting on a desk… staring ahead with a steely focus in your eyes. You pour yourself a glass of whiskey from a lustrous decanter and take a small sip. But… What is the purpose of a whiskey decanter? Well, it allows your whiskey to ‘breathe’ through oxidation and let the sediments settle in the bottom. Before purchasing a decanter, consider the following factors:
Size: A bottle of whiskey usually has about 25 ounces so you will need a decanter that can hold an optimal amount of drink.
Seal: To slow down oxidation of spirits, an airtight seal is highly important in a whiskey decanter.
Material: Ideally, the material should be a lead-free crystal to avoid leaching of lead into your drink. However, many crystal decanters contain some percentage of lead in them.
