Colder weather calls for warming cocktails, and there’s perhaps no cozier beverage than whiskey. Whether you like yours neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a cocktail, you’ll need a good set of rocks glasses to sip from this fall.
There are countless options, which is why we tested 13 of the top brands to find out which are worthy of a place on your bar cart. We think Spiegelau’s double Old Fashioned glasses are essential for whiskey and beyond—and right now a set of four is less than $30 at Amazon.
Spiegelau Perfect Serve Double Old Fashioned Glasses, Set of 4
Why It Won Our Review
Our tests included more than a dozen whiskey glasses, but these double Old Fashioned glasses from Spiegelau were true standouts. With their sturdy bases and thick sides, this set of four is tough enough to become your new daily drinkware (they’re even dishwasher-safe!) but beautiful enough to display on your bar cart. These German-made crystal rocks glasses won us over with their minimalist yet eye-catching etchings.
With a 12.5 ounce capacity, they were also the largest glasses we tested. While that makes them the most versatile of the bunch, perfect for drinking whiskey on the rocks or cocktails like Manhattans and Old Fashioneds, they may not be the right choice for those who prefer to sip it neat. Use them as water glasses to enhance your weeknight dinner table, or think beyond brown liquor and employ them as an elegant vessel for G&Ts. If you’re in search of the perfect holiday gift for Dad or need a new set of your own, there’s never been a better time to grab a set of Spiegelau rocks glasses. Snag yours while they’re still 36% off at Amazon.
