Why Use a Decanter

Decanting can serve different purposes depending on the substance. Many times decanters act as design pieces, allowing you to serve spirits or even mouthwash in a stylish manner. Decanters for wine on the other hand typically have a more functional purpose, providing air to the wine in order to gain more desirable sensory characteristics to a wine. High-quality decanters are sure to impress guests and maintain the integrity of any wine or spirit being served.


Preserving Spirits

When choosing a decanter as a gift, be sure to take into account design, functionality, and especially quality. The two main aspects to consider in terms of quality are the stopper and the material. The stopper piece should be of the highest quality, fitted perfectly to make an airtight seal. The material is important, especially when storing spirits in the decanter. Crystal decanters can transfer a high quantity of lead to the liquid, so be sure to look for decanters made from safe materials.
