A personalized whiskey decanter is a home run of a gift, its one of those gifts that a guy will not buy for himself but would love to have. As a small but meaningful upgrade, you can get him one of our engraved decanter sets that also come with whiskey glasses. Your man will proudly display his personalized decanter for years to come and think of you ever time he uses it.

The history of decanters starts back to the ancient Romans but they weren’t filling their decanters with whiskey, like most dapper gentleman do today. Back in those times, decanters would be used only for wine. They would pour wine from the barrels to the decanter to make it easier to serve at dinner. Though wine decanters are still used today, they also evolved for stronger spirits.

Back in the day decanters would show high class and money when they were seen on a table. Today they show high class and very professional. If you walk into an office and see a nice decanter set and lowball glasses on the table you know this person means business.

What Types of Decanters are There?

There are two major different kinds of decanters; wine and whiskey.

Wine decanters aren’t for storing wine for a long time, they are used to help aerate the wine from the bottle to decanter. Wine decanters are wide base and mouth usually made of thin glass so it is easy to swirl the wine around to expose all the flavors within the wine. Wine decanters are used for drinks on the spot, pop the bottle, pour the wine and wait a few minutes then drink. Keeping wine in an uncorked decanter for too long can ruin the wine's bouquet. Decanting wine like back in the day can also help remove some sentiment from the base of older wines.

Whiskey or bourbon decanters aren’t used to aerate the wine or remove sentiment. These decanters are used sticky to look classy and like a boss. There are two types of material used for whiskey decanters, glass, and crystal. Both come in many different shapes and sizes, but there is a big difference between them, besides the price. Glass decanters (only decanters on our site) can be done in any shape and if they have a tight seal you can leave your dark spirit in there for months without worry. Crystal decanter though beautiful sounding can look the same as glass. The issue with crystal decanters is you can’t leave alcohol in them for long because the longer they are in there the more lead leaks from the crystal into your drink.

This is why we only have glass decanters on our site. You get the great quality and amazing engraved look without the fear of lead poisoning.

What Size Decanter Should You Buy?

This question depends on how much you will use it? Do you enjoy a fine glass of dark nectar every night before bed? Then get a decanter like the Classy Decanter this decanter is 56 oz. big enough to hold whatever bottle you want. This decanter is for someone who will finish it off in a week and fill it up with a new juice. Read below the differences between tight seals and loose ones. If you are a big whiskey guy but prefer to only drink a bottle a month then stick to the Moonshine Madness this decanter has a tight see but at 34 oz can still fit whatever bottle you are fancying that month.

If you like to mix it up each week and prefer buying smaller bottles try the Decant Touch This a 27 Oz engraved square decanter. A tight glass decanter is perfect for the weekend warrior. For those who want to drink light and share your drink try out the Quality Piece of Glass. This decanter is 26 Oz of beautiful engraved glass that comes with 2 engraved low ball glasses for your sharing needs.

Does Whiskey Go Bad in a Decanter?

This is a great question that every whiskey loved needs to know. You want to look classy with the new decanter but you don’t want to spoil your quality blend. The sad answer is yes whiskeys can go bad in decanters. The good news is some decanters can keep whiskey safe and healthy for months. Whiskey or Bourbon don’t want to leave their bottles and when they do they get exposed to the elements. Most of our decanters will help your drinks say fresh for months but not all will.

First off we have no crystal decanters so there is no need to worry about harmful chemicals leaking into your whiskey. Now decanters with a tight seal like the Remy Round or Ultimate Decanter Set have a very tight seal that keeps out too much oxygen. Having a tight seal halts any condensation from spoiling your drink.

Decanters like the Paddywhack and Drink Quartet though they have a tight seal they are not as secure as the cork like tops of our other decanters. Now I don’t want to concern you that the whiskey will go bad after an hour in the decanter. If your decanter is in a nice bar area that is cool and not directly in the sun your whiskey can last a while in any decanter.

Do you need to Wash Decanters?

Yes, you need to wash decanters and keep the outside clean. Everything needs to be wash so this is a silly question. Reasons to wash the inside of your decanter is to make sure you don’t cross whiskeys together and ruin the flavor. Reasons so wash the outside of a decanter is to make sure your personalization pops and no one wants to drinks from a decanter covered in dust. Be sure to get all the soap out when washing and make sure it is completely dry before adding your drink of choice.

Why Should I Buy A Decanter?

Our decanters are all personalized with whatever you would like on them. They are the perfect gift for any friend, boyfriend, or father that likes to the strong stuff. We have decanters for the single businessman and for the life of the party. Gifting a decanter immediately increases the classiness of the gentleman receiving the gift. Adding their name to the decanter increases the specialness of the gift tenfold. Our decanter page has sets for men who Drink and Smoke or a set to share with friends. No matter what decanter you choose your friend is sure to love it.
