A ships decanter made in crystal glass with a 925 solid silver collar perfect for engraving. This decanter has a broad flat base so is very stable in most conditions, even on a sailing ship from where it gets it’s name. A perfect gift for any wine lover.
Why do we decant wine?
When you decant a bottle of wine, two things happen. First, slow and careful decanting allows wine (particularly older wine) to separate from its sediment, which, if left mixed in with the wine, will impart a very noticeable bitter, astringent flavour. Second, when you pour wine into a decanter, the resulting agitation causes the wine to mix with oxygen, enabling it to develop and come to life at an accelerated pace (this is particularly important for younger wine).
