Named for Scotland’s River Clyde, this Scottish whiskey-inspired glass features timeless aesthetics and satisfying heft. Crafted from crystal (also called lead-free crystal or crystalline glass), this piece resists chipping better than regular glass. It refracts light more beautifully than other glasses on our list while still feeling substantial when held. Etching and engraving work well, though some consumers have noted that the thin glass around its rim could chip more quickly.
While this glass is ideal for making traditional Old-Fashioned cocktails, its larger design suits high-alcohol beverages served over ice. Its wide brim and thick base are designed to withstand muddling, making combining non-liquid ingredients like sugar and bitters easier before mixing spirits.

These heavy base glasses can withstand mixing drinks or pouring whiskey neatly into them and easily accommodate large and small ice cubes, so they are suitable for any drink type or serve large groups comfortably.
Note that although all our selections are dishwasher-safe, crystal glasses should always be hand-washed due to heat and detergent’s ability to damage their material. This is particularly important with glasses with gold or silver trim or vintage barware pieces containing them; additionally, any decorated or etched details need to be handled and washed carefully, as household cleaners contain chemicals that could potentially harm them.
Crystal glasses are made of heavier, more durable material than standard glass, which holds its shape better and resists cracking, chipping, and scratching better than regular glass. Crystal is often found in high-end cocktail glasses due to its beautiful refraction of light that adds depth and richness to presentations.
