Accessories every Man should have in his bar

This is the party season especially New Year and your bar is stocked with the best of brands from around the world. But for a complete drinking experience you might want to consider the following accessories

Glencairn Whisky Glasses

You travel the world  and spend a fortune on buying some of the best whiskies  like Lagavulin, The Singleton, Johnnie Walker Blue Label etc. for  your coveted parties. But there is one factor that most whisky lovers tend to ignore, the most appropriate glass to sip it from, and appreciate its nuances. Scottish glass maker  Glencairn has the answer in the form of Glencairn Whisky Glasses whose design is based on the tulip shaped  nosing copitas that have been used  for `nosing’  new blends by master blenders and distillers in Scotland for over two hundred years. The full bowl shape that tapers at the rim allows one to swirl the whisky and release the aroma and the taste for a complete experience.

Ice ball Maker

Who hasn’t had problems getting ice out of the fridge ice-tray at a party. This ice ball maker made out of silicone makes life easier. It features six ice ball moulds that makes ice in the shape of 4.5 cm spheres. Because of its shape, the balls are easily dislodged by twisting, a much easier process than wrestling with fridge trays. Also because of its relatively small  surface area, ice balls tend to melt slower than  icecubes.

Sipping Stones

Sipping Stones is the latest trend  when it comes to chilling alcoholic drinks. Melting ice cubes  tend to dilute the taste of the alcohol which is  is a big problem for who those who like to savour and appreciate their drink.  Especially when you drink expensive Single Malts or vodkas you don’t want water from the ice tarnishing the experience. This is particularly true in  in a country like India where weather does not permit us to drink  good alcohol without ice. Sipping Stones, an American company, has come up with a solution: perfectly crafted cubes of soapstone, that once chilled in the freezer retains its low temperature long enough to be used as a substitute for ice, without the downside of melting. Because soapstone is non-porus it does not in anyway react with alcohol or impart it any taste or  flavor. Comes in a batch of nine stones.

Right glasses for Red Wine, White Wine and Champagne

You need not be a connoisseur to know that each variety of wine should be drunk  in a differently shaped glassware. Red wine glass  should have a wider bowl with a shorter stem which makes it easy for the air to mix with the wine for oxidation, which in turn helps  in the quick release of its aroma and flavor. White wine glasses on the other hand  tend to have smaller bowls and longer stems because the wine does not require oxidation to realize its  potential. Finally champagne and sparkling wines should  ideally be drunk in a flute whose shape helps preserve and showcase its  characteristic effervescence in the form of sparkling bubbles.
