In early 1992, a panel of Scotch
whiskey experts convened at Riedel's headquarters in
Austria to test a range of nineteen different glass
On the basis of this first
selection, Georg Riedel undertook further research
with the help of master distillers in Scotland.
This research resulted in a glass
that is an elongated thistle shape on a truncated
stem. The design incorporates a small, slightly
outturned lip which directs the spirit onto the tip of
the tongue, where sweetness is perceived, and serves
to emphasize the elegant creaminess of top quality
single malt whiskey.
