6. Brandy Glasses

Brandy is an exceptionally popular drink which gives you all the more reason to have a special brandy glass available in your cupboard. Designed with a large surface area, the glass is able to be held in the hand and therefore the liquor is warmed before drinking.

A similar design to beer glassware, cider glasses are created in such a way as to emphasise the flavours and colours of cider. It is also traditionally a British drink which is a factor that sets it apart from beer.
