Today we will answer all the questions related to storing whiskey in decanters, decanter purpose, decanter use, and more.
WHAT IS A DECANTER?
Decanters are a type of vessel (usually made from glass) used to serve alcohol. Most homeowners use a decanter to serve the alcohol into glasses. In restaurants, bartenders pour the decanted alcohol back into the bottle for visual appearance. So what does a whiskey decanter do? Whiskey decanters allow you to pour the alcohol from its bottle into a glass without disturbing the bottom sediments. Beautiful whiskey glasses and decanters can instantly level up the visual appeal of your interior. Glass whiskey decanters are often used to offer a sophisticated look to the place.

DOES DECANTING IMPROVE WHISKEY?
To answer the question - Yes and no. Unlike wines, whiskey does not age in the bottle. If you keep a 12-year-old whiskey bottle for 100 years, it will always remain the same exact 12-year-old whisky. Even it was bottled 100 years ago!

HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP WHISKEY IN A DECANTER?
If you decide to use crystal decanters for storing whiskey, make sure you keep the excess whiskey overnight and consume it the day after. We recommend you use an airtight stopper to keep the air out of the whiskey bottle. For high quality decanters, check out our beautiful collection of crystal whiskey decanters.
HOW DO YOU DECANT WHISKEY?
First and foremost - whiskey shouldn't be kept in the decanter for a longer period. You must decant only the required amount plus additional servings on top of your possible consumption, in case you have guests around. However, you shouldn't refill the glass after a single round. That's a different story if you have 20 guests over at your place and your decanter has a holding capacity of 22 ounces. You can always consider buying two or three more decanters and filling them with whiskey so that you don't have to refill after a single round.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A WHISKEY DECANTER?
Unlike in wine, decanting for whiskey is mostly used for aesthetic purposes. Decanting your whiskey can enhance the visual appeal of the place. You can place your whiskey into a decanter to persuade your guest to take a refreshing sip.
