Description
Our Argyll Whisky Tasting Set is an ideal gift for the connoiseur – including a pair of whisky glasses with a bulbous body shape that allows aromas to collect and be directed through a narrow rim to enhance the experience of drinking and nosing whisky. The art of distillation spread to Scotland and Ireland no later than the 15th century, primarily for medicinal purposes, eventually passing from a monastic setting to the secular. The earliest mention of whisky in Ireland comes from the seventeenth-century Annals of Clonmacnoise, which attributes the death of a chieftain in 1405 to 'taking a surfeit of aqua vitae' at Christmas. In Scotland, the first evidence of whisky production comes from an entry in the Exchequer Rolls for 1494 where malt is sent 'To Friar John Cor, by order of the king, to make aquavitae', enough to make about 500 bottles. Enjoy the complex aromas and taste of your favourite whisky with this handsome set, complete with accompanying water jug and wooden serving tray.
