Who has met Denver Cramer?
Denver is one of the creators of the famed Denver and Liely glasses that make whiskey and gin even more amazing than they already are. I first met Denver when I emailed his company to beg them to let me sell their glasses at Riverside Wine and Spirits, when I was the accessories buyer there. Denver fell for my name, hook, line , and sinker. Denver is Australian, and there is a city in Australia named Adelaide. No, I am not named for the city in Australia, but to get these gorgeous glasses in the store I would have told Denver that I was conceived and born there. It worked! And lucky for me, Denver thinks of me as "a legend" because of my fibs about my name, and lets me sell these beautiful glasses in my store, Divine Goods.
Denver has been to Chattanooga several times to visit and he is becoming a legend in these parts himself. I have not met Liely, but hope they will be back on yet another road trip so I can meet the other half of this amazing team. Until then, I will continue to sell these glasses and hope for a new post in the Denver and Liely Quench Journal.
If you are looking for a gift for the whiskey lover, then this glass is the perfect gift. The glass comes in the best looking packaging and several of these glasses would make any home bar beautiful. Shop here.
Now, here is a little lesson from the Denver and Liely website about these glasses and how they will magically transform the way you taste whiskey.
"Traditionally the tumbler has been seen as the vessel of choice for the majority of whisky drinkers and the ‘whisky snifter’ relegated to the small group of true whisky tasters. D&L have now combined these worlds.
The hand-blown shape of the D&L Whisky Glass combines the benefits of taste and smell associated with a traditional whisky snifter with the versatility and style of a classic tumbler.
The wide base maximises the surface area of a standard measure, funnelling the aromas through the tapered body to the optimally sized opening. This reveals the whisky’s full character.
The D&L whisky glass allows true exploration into the depths of your favourite drop. Neat - on-ice - cocktails – whisky the way you like."
