THE GRÀN COLLECTION - Produced 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:
THE DELICATE: For Light Fruity Floral Notes
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.

THE CLASSIC: For Balanced Whiskies
THE SHERRIED: For Sherried Whiskies and Rums
The Sherried has a wider bowl, built that way to encourage oxidation to bring out more rounded notes that sherried whiskies are known for.
