The NEAT glass for spirit drinkers

Posted on , by Jackie in For the Home, Gourmet, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Scientifically designed glass improves all spirits aroma

Scientists have designed a glass specifically for drinking spirits neat. The glass is designed around Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology, or NEAT. The NEAT glass lets the alcohol scent remain in the glass, while releasing the fine aromas of a good spirit. The strong alcohol scent we get when drinking spirits numbs the olfactory senses. By leaving the alcohol scent behind, you are enhancing your experience.

With this glass, aromas become stronger and more pleasing. The “pot” at the bottom allows you to swirl your spirit without sloshing, while the narrow middle concentrates aroma. The wide neck cradles and keeps the alcohol scent in the glass allowing you to sip safely above, and the lip allows you to place your nose at just the right point for aroma.

This glass has specifically been designed for drinking neat. Water ruins the effects of the glass. If you want to chill your spirit, perhaps you should try some whiskey rocks.

The NEAT glass has been used in many spirits judging competitions since its introduction in 2012, and won “Best new bar product” by Vegas Seven magazine and was the Official Spirits judging glass for the 2013 World Wine and Spirits competition.
