Decanters became popular in the UK in the 18th Century, although it wasn’t until around 1850 that the idea of putting a silver collar around the neck was introduced. Since then decanters have been made in many different designs, and for different purposes. From whisky to wine, and from the classic form to the aptly named ‘Glug Glug’, to more novelty designs such as the ‘Gin Pig’, decanters are still used and admired today, and make a wonderful addition to the table.
