New-Fashioned Water Carafe
The New-Fashioned Water Carafe is a contemporary take on the Scottish tradition of serving scotch neat with a small carafe of water. The idea is to slowly dilute the liquor with a little water between each sip. The more water is added, the more subtle notes and aroma comes out. Think of temperature and red wine. If you have ever had red wine that was chilled for one reason or another, you would know that it is just boozy. As the wine is warmed to room temperature, the soft fruit notes, the berry, the tannins all start to become more pronounced and enjoyable. Slowly adding a small amount of water to the bourbon will have a similar effect. It allows you to really get a feeling for the character of each batch of bourbon. Two whiskeys that taste similar neat, will develop distinctly different characters when you start to add water. It is the subtle notes that were masked by the proof of the liquor and slowly revealed as water is added.
The New-Fashioned Water Carafe holds about 6 oz of water. There is an inset for your thumb and a focused lip that allows for easy and controlled pouring. Measures approximately 3.75" tall, 3.5" wide.
Hand washing is recommended.
