What do you think about when you look at a beautiful decanter filled with wine or whiskey? It’s a touch of class and sophistication often associated with the movies. But you don’t need to be rich or famous to take advantage of one of these functional or decorative pieces. Pewter and crystal decanters are excellent gifts for anyone who enjoys a glass of red wine served in optimum condition. Wine needs to breathe in order to release its aroma and taste, and although this isn’t the same for whiskey it still looks amazing being poured from an ideal receptacle.
