Why Choose Don Vassie’s Vintage Crystal Decanters?

There are three things that must be kept in mind before buying a decanter:

  • Make sure that the decanter has an airtight seal:  Yes, the agenda is to let your spirit breathe. But exposure to oxygen for a long time can have repercussions. You need an airtight seal on a decanter to make sure that air does not enter or escape.
  • Make sure the decanter is not too small:  The ideal bottle is a little more than 25 ounces and therefore, your decanter should be able to store around 750 ml of any spirit.
  • Make sure your decanter is lead-free: Lead used in a decanter can be very dangerous and is not recommended. At Don Vassie, our unique whiskey decanters and wine decanters are made only with crystal!
