Description

The Nyht Whisky Decanter is a condensed form, for short measured amounts of your spirit—more than a dram, less than a bottle. Inspired by the bedtime routine of carrying a carafe of water with inverted glass to the bedside, this decanter has been designed for the very specific and personal ritual of enjoying a few pours of whisky while engaged in a can’t-tear-yourself-away book, album, or film.

A ring is precision cut into the top of the decanter, allowing its partner, the Rauk Heavy Tumbler, to be inverted and docked. The two can then be carried one-handed, from the place you fill to the place you take seat. By mirroring the design language of the Heavy Tumbler, we have created a soulmate object set, for the times it is time to be alone.

Notes & Care
  • The crystal decanter is a completely hand-made object. Due to the behavior of glass when blowing into a non-rotational metal mould, small surface defects may be present. This is one of the details that makes such an object unique. 
  • Due to variations in thickness of the glass during the mouth-blowing process, the lid may sit slightly different from the photos depicted. Specific tolerances have been set with our production partners and all decanters that ship will have been deemed acceptable by Norlan. 
  • Handwash with a mild detergent and non-abrasive cloth. Dry by hand.

Making Not Just a Decanter

Digitally designed, the Nyht Whisky Decanter is exhaustingly brought to life over the course of numerous processes involving mouth blowing glass, cutting, drilling, grinding, manual and chemical polishing, sandblasting, and precision diamond wheel cutting. In all, there are over ten steps to producing the crystal vessel alone.

Once again, we were told it couldn’t be done. Every. Step. Of. The. Way.
We had a vision and our Czech maker reluctance. It took six months to finalize the design, and another six months of trialing and refining the technique of cutting the mouth for the stopper. Mouth-blown glass and precision-machined metal make poor bedfellows, but marry them we would.

The decanter’s entire surface, inside and out, is born in a single slow exhale: molten crystal mouth blown into a massive hinged-steel mold. Blown, the bulb is cut off and the base cold worked flat. The mouth is so complex it required specially procured wheels to accommodate the stopper. After finally coaxing the glass mouth into an exact shape for docking the aluminum lid, the decanter is sand blasted in a gradient flow from the top down. 

On the other side of the globe, the aluminum stopper went through a similar battery of trials. Edges were digitally sculpted, radii were defined and redefined in fractions of millimeters, and shock sprayed finishes were repeatedly sampled to arrive at a uniquely textured matte surface.

And with that, we step into the future perfect, eloping with the beauty of the glass technique and the optimism of machine and form.
