Irish Oak Whiskey Tumbler
A truly original gift idea for whiskey lovers this Christmas.
Inspired by the manufacturing process of whiskeys, Joe laird has developed a Sessile Oak Whiskey Tumbler. Toasted on the inside and shaped like a coopers barrel, the tumbler adopts the same methods used in the coopering and maturation process of whiskey making.
With the manufacturing time of one whiskey tumbler taking a little over five weeks, handcrafting each tumbler is obviously a labour of love for Joe laird. Each piece of wood is carefully selected and monitored closely for imperfections throughout the manufacturing process. Like in the coopering process, each piece must adhere to a set of specifications with regards to size, weight, thickness and colour. However, each piece of wood is a product of nature and, therefore, no two pieces will ever be the same. Each tumbler is a unique piece of art in its own right.

Putting the whiskey back into the oak from whence it came, enhances the the whiskey’s woody and vanilla flavours like no glass tumbler ever could. This is an experience that ever true whiskey enthusiast must try.
Hundreds of different flavour compounds have been identified in whisky. The synthesis and degradation and synergistic properties of these compounds is still poorly understood as there are so many aspects contributing to the result of cask maturation.Oak cask affects whisky by extracting wood compounds that influence the taste directly or together with the spirit compounds or by removing or changing some compounds from the raw spirit.
