‘Alba’ is Gaelic for Scotland, the collection pays tribute to the spiritual home of whisky. The elegant glasses are punctuated by a hand-engraved and cleverly deconstructed Tartan pattern. Each glass is heavy-bottomed, and each carefully tapers towards the brim, holding in the subtle aromas. The decanters, also incorporating the ingenious tartan etching, are punctuated by a unique stopper which leans omni-directionally, inviting the more dedicated whisky lover to point the stopper in the direction of Scotland.
