SAVU glass FAQ
Alcohol is an essential part of whisky but it is also a strong and volatile solvent. As such it readily ’kills’ the nose of a whisky taster and does not allow him or her to experience the actual aromas in the beverage. In aroma research we call this well-known and age old problem the alcohol blocking effect.
The glass has a huge influence in the whole drinking experience. The most important function of a whisky glass is to allow the best possible access to the rich and unique set of fragrances of each whisky. Beyond that the glass is part of the whole tasting experience from handling, holding, lip feel, sniffing and drinking.
The dream of any serious whisky glass manufacturers and designers has for ages been to eliminate the so-called alcohol blocking effect i.e. dominance of Alcohol in tasting. We have found the solution.
Savu is the first and only technical whisky glass. The unique and patented design functions so that you will not smell the alcohol but the actual aromas of whisky. For many this is 'like a very first time' kind of experience.
With SAVU you can concentrate fully on the aromas in whisky without the interference of strong alcohol smell. And its beautiful and unique Finnish design, of course.
With or wihtout ice the SAVU glass is in it’s own class because it eliminates the alcohol blocking efffect.
Our noses do not lie. The glass has been investigated in the University of Helsinki and Univesity of Turku. The results are conclusive, SAVU is superior to other glasses. SAVU design has been patented.
