THE GRÀN COLLECTION BY LUCARIS

Designed in Singapore by Matthew Fergusson-Stewart and produced by Lucaris, The Gràn Collection is a collaboration between the whisky educator and the luxury crystal glass manufacturer in Asia.

The first specialised and award-winning whisky crystal glassware, The Gràn Collection is designed to pick up whisky characteristics and enhance the appreciation of different nuances in the drams.

The project with Lucaris started in 2019 just before COVID-19 struck Singapore and accelerated during Singapore’s first lockdown.

FOUR SPECIALISED CRYSTAL GLASSES FOR WHISKIES (& RUMS)

Drawing inspiration from the Gaelic word for grain, The Gràn Collection is a poetic representation of “from grain to glass” and features four leadfree crystals optimised for tasting distinctively different whiskies:

“If there are different glasses for drinking wine, why shouldn’t there be different glasses for whisky appreciation considering the variety of styles as well?”

THE DELICATE: For Light Fruity Floral Notes

The Gràn Collection - Delicate

The Delicate has an angled rim that is designed to emphasise the light fruity and floral notes in more delicate whiskies. It is good for the likes of classic Irish whiskies, lowland Scotch whiskies, as well as their lighter Highland and Speyside brethren.

Recommended for: Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Proclamation, Grace O Malley, Malt, Grain & Cane: Saudade 我紫在乎你 – Cooley Single Malt Irish Whiskey 2002, 18 Years

THE CLASSIC: For Balanced Whiskies

The Gràn Collection - Classic

The Classic is the familiar tulip-shaped glass. It is designed for balanced whiskies such as blended scotch, classic bourbons, and balanced single malts.

Recommended for: Arbikie, Four Roses, Malt, Grain & Cane: BenRiach 1997, 24 Years

 

THE SHERRIED: For Sherried Whiskies and Rums

The Gràn Collection - Sherried

The Sherried has a wider bowl, built that way to encourage oxidation to bring out more rounded notes that sherried whiskies are known for.

Recommended for: Aberlour, Glendronach, Macallan, The Yamazaki, Glenfarclas, Malt, Grain & Cane: Sunset Boulevard – Secret Orkney 2007, 15 Years

THE PEATED: Earthy, Peated Whiskies

The Gràn Collection - Peated

The Peated comes with a narrow rim that expresses the richer earthier notes.

Recommended for: Caol Ila, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Port Charlotte, Ardbeg, Talisker, Malt, Grain & Cane: Ophelia – Staoisha 2013, 8 Years (Bunnahabhain)  

REVIEWS

"And if you happen to be a supertaster – one of the around 25% of the population with more acute tastebuds than the rest – these glasses can change your whisky drinking life."
"I had to try it for myself, comparing them to the ubiquitous Glencairn glass and suffice to say, I "was impressed."
"The Gran Collection of whisky glassware by luxury crystal maker Lucaris Crystal will make an elegant and thoughtful gift for fans ..."
"So in summary? VERY impressive. No word of a lie, the difference was stark."
