There’s no better way to add a little class to your life than a glass of whiskey. It’s a drink that has been around since at least the 14th century and has been used in popular culture to differentiate between sophisticated businessmen and just about everyone else. Though whiskey is most famously distilled in Ireland and Scotland, there are countless whiskeys made around the world, each with their own distinct taste. Some people like to mix their whiskey with coke, or ginger ale, but the absolute best way to enjoy the flavoring is by having it on the rocks (or neat) in your favorite whiskey glasses.
Much like drinking a fine wine over dinner, drinking whiskey should be an experience. You should relax and revel with friends, family, or co-workers over a glass of whiskey. To have the perfect whiskey experience, you’re going to need a good set of glassware. Much like wearing a suit makes you feel sophisticated, whiskey just tastes better if you’re feeling classy. How do you feel classy? By having the best whiskey glasses money can buy. Or, at least the best ones that your budget will allow for. Which we think you will find in the list below.

Full Whisky Decanter Sets with Matching Glasses
We have previously showcased some of the coolest Whiskey decanters on the market, but all of these were standalone decanters. And sometimes you want to buy a decanter with matching glasses. Here are four whiskey decanter sets that we love.
Willow & Everett Whiskey Glass Set With Decanter
Throw out your boring circular IKEA glasses and dare to be different. Not only is this set exquisitely crafted, but it comes with a decanter — and at such an affordable price, too. A decanter is a glass vessel that you should be storing your whiskey, or just about any hard liquor in. Drinking whiskey with a decanter set is a surefire way to feel as sophisticated as Bond in his most iconic film. This entire set has been designed for whiskey lovers, too, because each glass is wide enough to hold granite whiskey stones, which are essentially a way to keep your whiskey cold without diluting it with ice.

Drinking whiskey should feel like a special occasion — even if it isn’t. Honestly, the Marquis by Waterford decanter set is magnificent. Crafted from lead free crystal, which is safer (and better) than most other glass, you’re going to feel powerful with these in your hand. The diamond cuts and wedges form contemporary shapes that you could spend all day tracing with your fingers. If you love your whiskey (and I know you do) it’s time that you made drinking whiskey an experience to remember. Buy Here
James Scott 5 Piece Crystal Decanter Set
Not everyone can fork out a fortune on an expensive decanter set, which is where James Scott comes in with this fantastic set offered at an affordable price. Designed to reflect the soft beauty of the countryside, these glasses do a fantastic job of looking more expensive than they actually are.

Then again, there’s no better way to ensure that nothing happens to your favourite decanter set than by washing it carefully with warm water. Buy Here

The Fitz and Floyd Bridgeport Crystal Whiskey Bar Set is the type of glassware you would expect your boss to pull out after an exceptionally tough meeting.
