Iain Weir, Brand Director at Smokehead, comments: “Elliot’s winning glassware design is truly a work of art, and it’s been a thrilling journey to witness this project come to life. Naturally, we wanted our Smokehead family to be part of this process, so involving them in the final design vote was imperative. This project embodies our ethos that Smokehead never restricts the ways its whisky can be enjoyed. We can’t wait for the glass to launch later this month and hope it entices drinkers of other malts to use it too.”

Elliot Walker shares his thoughts: “Collaborating with Smokehead on this extraordinary project is a career highlight for me. Smokehead is at the forefront of whisky innovation and unafraid to push boundaries, much like I am with my sculptures. I’m a devoted fan of the brand, and crafting a bespoke item that reflects its rebellious and innovative spirit is an exciting challenge. This glass not only makes a bold statement but also enhances the drinking experience by covering the nose while sipping, allowing the aromas to elevate the taste of the drink.”

In conclusion, the Smokemask Glass, a result of the creative partnership between Smokehead and Elliot Walker, is poised to revolutionize the whisky experience. Its unique design challenges tradition and promises whisky enthusiasts an unforgettable sensory journey, making it a must-have for those who cherish innovation in their whisky enjoyment.
