Enrich your whisky experience

Being the first and only hand pressed whisky glass to have been designed and developed in Norway, we´re really proud to offer you a unique twist to the whisky journey.

By focusing on top shelf materials like lead-free crystal for the glasses and solid oak for the six glass case, and marrying this with the unique design and drinking experience, we feel our glass really brings something new to the table.



Enhanced aroma delivery

Even though it´s outer shape is that of a regular tumbler, the inside is another story - The two mountain sides act almost like small wave breakers causing the whisky to mix with air when you stir the glass, giving off more rich aromas. And as you let the whisky settle, it will concentrate towards the middle narrowing the surface off the whisky, giving you both a stronger center scent and a softer scent towards the edges.


Born in Norway

Designed and developed in Norway, the Fjord whisky glass with its massive inner mountain sides sets out to create your very own little whisky fjord at the bottom. Reflecting some of the really beautiful nature we´re blessed with here in Norway.

Details

  • Massive lead free crystal
  • Hand made
  • Aprox 0,5 Kg
  • Diameter 8,7 cm



The Journey

After the initial idea of the glass sprung to life two years ago, we spent a few months looking into basic shapes and sizes - talking to various glass makers to get their input in terms of actual production. Having found some parameters to work with, we started shaping the glass in a 3D software and 3D printing the various versions. A few more months, some 50+ 3D printed glasses and a final thumbs up from the factory, we were ready for real prototyping.

A quick leap forward, more packaging designing and prototyping finally brings us to where we´re able to present the final product to you.


Solid oak 6 glass case and the 2 glass gift box.

 
The Oak case is our finest limited 6 glass tier. Designed in-house as always and made from solid oak, the case is a massive 5 kilogram heavy.  Inside, three and three glasses are separated by an oak wall and carefully secured in laser cut black foam.

The 2 glass gift box is also a good step up from the usual cardboard box new glasses come in, as they´re safely stored in foam compartments, tucked inside in a drawer style box design. Giving it just little more refinement.

Timeline

After a (hopefully) successful campaign, we expect to ship the glasses by the end of august/start of September.


VAT / Duties / Shipping

Shipping will primarly be done from Hong Kong. Vat/duties may apply (depending on your country), and is the sole responsibility of the buyer.

Risks and challenges

The Fjord Whisky Glass has been under development since June of 2016. We have already invested thousands of hours and personal savings into research, design, development, sampling, and testing to achieve what we belive to be a perfect whisky glass. We completely believe in this product and the experience it will bring you.

Raising a minimum of $5k on Kickstarter will now allow us to meet minimum production and packaging runs, establish early distribution, begin the crucial marketing phase, and further invest in IP protection.

We have partnered with a globally vetted manufacturer to ensure the highest quality control and production fulfillment. While we are confident that we will deliver between Sept and Oct of 2018, no new product or invention comes without some unexpected challenges. Those may include potential delays in the fulfillment process, which might ultimately setback our timeline.

We promise to be fully transparent throughout the entire process and are committed to providing regular, detailed updates to our Kickstarter supporters.

Thank you for supporting Fjord Whisky and for being a part of bringing this product to life.
