UNTIL NOW THE PURPOSE OF A SPIRITS GLASS WAS SIMPLY TO DELIVER DRINK FROM CONTAINER TO MOUTH
In 2003, a simple glass blowing mistake created a glass shape which amazingly displayed the true expression of spirits, and launched a new, scientific approach to glass design, which we call Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology (NEAT).
By studying human olfactory physiology and applying molecular science, we unlocked the hidden dimensions of distilled spirits with a glass that enhances drinking pleasure and enjoyment. Over nine years, fifty two design changes, hundreds of tastings, and many aroma profile studies we developed the perfect spirits glass - the NEAT glass.
Taste the Truth: Taste and aroma are the true measures of a spirit's quality. Alcohol burn numbs the sense of smell and overwhelms the truth, spoiling your drinking experience. Neat eliminates nose burn and numbness, leaving your nose free to detect, savor, and enjoy the subtle, wonderful aromas the distiller intended. Nothing hides from the truth.
Design Driven by Science Makes the Difference: The NEAT Glass was tested against other spirits glasses under controlled, uniform conditions by University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Chemistry Department to verify claimed results. Science built a better glass.
How to Use: Pour to the max bowl diameter (1 1/2 oz) swirl, hold level, and begin to smell from the center of the rim plane of the glass for characteristic aromas without alcohol, breathe in with mouth CLOSED, and evaluate. NEAT gives you both aromas with and without alcohol. Place nose deep inside the glass to get the alcohol, or smell the alcohol alone at the rim of the glass. Do Not Add Water, it shuts down evaporation and will result in much less aroma to savor.
