6 Unique Whiskey Decanters to Give This Holiday Season

Unique Whiskey DecantersUnique whiskey decanters are a drinkers best friend. They make you look classy, put your whiskey within arms reach, and inspire you to drink more regularly. OK, maybe that last one’s just me, but I use avoiding oxidation as an excuse to have a few fingers of whiskey.

There are plenty of vessels that can hold your spirits, but we think it’s better to have unique whiskey decanters. And that’s even more important if you’re buying a whiskey decanter gift, because who wants something boring?

Our Favorite Unique Whiskey Decanters

Whiskey is a (Wo)man’s Best Friend

What’s better than owning a dog? Owning a dog decanter! They stay this size forever, never bark, and won’t wake you up to pee at 5am. OK, we can’t promise that last one.

Is It Just Me or Is the Room Spinning?

Whisk(e)y comes from around the world, so why shouldn’t your decanter? Ok, so it’s really only from one place (New York), but the spirits inside can be from anywhere you might find Carmen Sandiego.
