More scent.
More taste.
More enjoyment.


The whisky-tasting revolution bridging chemistry and gastronomy.

A glass that makes whisky taste better! SAVU – the functional whisky glass – is chemist Dr Jari Tuominen’s invention. It bridges chemistry with gastronomy in a new way and makes the sensing of whisky aromas easy for everyone.

‘I think we should all enjoy whisky aromas ourself and appreciate the wonderful work of distilleries and their master blenders. It is certainly better to experience whisky flavours in person than to read the elaborate desciptions of others about them’

– Jari Tuominen, inventor

the revolutionary design

Chemist Dr Jari Tuominen invented the glass for the ultimate whisky experience. The design was then perfected in collaboration with laboratories in University of Turku and University of Helsinki.

1. Ledges

The upper part of Savu tasting glass has small ledges; perfectly positioned shaped and sized volumetric planes. This is where the SAVU magic happens.

2. Shape

The novel hourglass shape with its waist curbs the alcohol evaporation and escape into your nose from the lower part.

'I'm not a whisky drinker. Actually, I don't even like whisky that much. after trying with SAVU Glass I was really amazed how good the whisky smelled. The various notes, the caramel and other aromas were no longer hidden under the alcohol. Still not a big whisky drinker, but I became a whisky taster!'

'They are sooooo cool! How can we get them in the US?'
Amazing new glasses
'Really amazing! My first impression after comparing SAVU with my old sniffing glasses was like comparing a visit to a perfumeries instead of a dentist's. Thus, a clear difference. Well done guys!'
Like visiting perfumeries instead of dentist

‘Whisky’s alcohol burn in the nose is a problem everyone recognizes. With our noses numbed by the alcohol fumes we cannot actually taste whisky! By abolishing this problem SAVU revolutionizes the entire experience: now everyone can have an unlimited access to the full bouquet of whisky flavours and aromas.’ -Jari Tuominen, Inventor

Whisky’s alcohol’s nose-numbing effect has been considered an inescabable problem. This is no longer the case: with its science-based functionality SAVU puts an end to it. It simply makes aroma sensing easy by eliminating the nose-numbing effect of the alcohol fumes.
