Two years after the launch of their revolutionary whisky glass, Norlan returns with another magnificent creation: The Rauk Heavy Tumbler.
If you’re at least a tiny bit interested in whisky, you might already be familiar with Norlan. In 2016, they launched a Kickstarter campaign featuring a new type of whisky glass. The Norlan whisky glass looked amazing, and the team behind the campaign were masters of marketing language. With pretentious phrases like “combining design, science, and sociology for the perfect whisky drinking experience”, and “fluid dynamics modeling and bio-mimicry”, it was obvious that every hipster across the globe would throw their money at Norlan. When the campaign ended, the company had raised more than 10 times their initial goal – including $38 pledged by yours truly.
After a bit of a wait, I received my two Norlan glasses. Or, to be more precise, I received one glass, and an unofficial Norlan whisky glass puzzle. The postal service hadn’t been too kind to the package, and one of the glasses had broken into a million tiny, sharp pieces. Not a major crisis, since I’m the only one in the household who enjoys whisky. And it only took a quick e-mail to Norlan to get a replacement glass for free. Amazing costumer support!
The Norlan whisky glass is great. But I’ll be honest with you, I’ve only used it a couple of times. The glass falls into the nosing category, and I’m more of a tumbler guy myself. So you can imagine my excitement when Norlan recently announced that they’ve made a brand new tumbler as well; the Rauk Heavy Tumbler.
