Life Vessel

Wine can save your life [emotionally]- FACT.  So pick out your vessel, hold on tight, and enjoy yourself.

What vessel do you drink out of?  Are you a glassware snob? Do you use a Glencairn for whiskey? A Riedel Shiraz glass for your best Aussie? Just check out the never-ending list of “correct” vessels to drink from at the Riedel site – or don’t, it’s boring,  but awesome.

I’m one of those people who regularly falls off the couch watching Brooklyn 99. Perhaps my very favourite scene is when Sgt Terry [of old spice fame] is shocked that Cpt Holt is so depressed that he didn’t stop to sniff the bouquet. “But you always sniff the bouquet!”.  “Maybe the old Holt did. But the new Holt chugs Beaujolais from a Burgundy glass without a care. [staring at glass] Oh, it’s a Sauternes glass.” I really did find that “fall off the couch” funny.

So … what is the best vessel / glass?  I had a friend ask me that recently.  The answer is so easy that a wine blogger with a PE degree from York could answer it.  Whichever one makes you happy – FACT.  Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise – they’re dumb.

I’ve been watching Game of Thrones with this


I drink my sparkling wines like this

Or this

I drink my whiskey in this


I drink my martinis in this



I drink my vodka the same way

I drink out of whatever vessel i want to – and i hang on and don’t let anyone take it from me.  You should too.  It makes living better – FACT
