Sláinte means "To your health!" in the ancient Gaelic Irish language!
The TÚATH (tu – ah) – from the old Irish for family or nation, is a conical shaped nosing and tasting glass for whiskey that functions superbly by concentrating & capturing all the aromas and flavors that make Irish Whiskey unique.
The generosity of Irish spirit is reflected in the enhanced chamber capacity delivering a more generous drinking experience.
Specifically designed for nosing and tasting whiskey. The Tuath glass was created in Ireland for Irish Whiskey, but is ideal for Scotch, Bourbon, or even Gin! Any spirit you enjoy!
How does it work?
Smell: The conical shape of the Túath concentrates the vapors while its slightly wider opening and flared top let more of the alcohol vapors flow out, allowing you to nose the center of the glass without alcohol burn, and the whiskey to express its hidden aromas and flavors.
Color: Blenders and connoisseurs like a stemmed glass which allows for the inspection of the spirits color without marking and clouding the view of the bowl with fingerprints. The Túath achieves this with its iconic short stem allowing for swirling, viewing and nosing.
Touch: The Túath’s stem provides a secure anchor for the thumb, and either left or right handed users can safely swirl and nose the whiskey, while the larger chamber and wider aperture allow the drinker to retain eye contact by not having to tilt their head back so far.
Taste: The larger chamber of The Túath allows whiskey drinkers to move seamlessly from a tasting experience to a drinking experience. The fine rim of the Túath glass elegantly sits on the surface of the lip while also allowing the alcohol vapors to escape away from the mouth enhancing the taste of the whiskey.
