The Glencairn Whisky Glasses, made by Glencairn Crystal and developed with master whisky distillers, have a thick, sturdy base that complements the depth of whisky, thin sides that allow you to clearly see the whisky’s color, and a tapered mouth that accentuates aromas. The glasses’ iconic shape is derived from the traditional nosing copitas used in Scottish whisky distilleries.

The process leading up to that moment is documented in The Making of the Morgan From Charles McKim to Renzo Piano, which chronicles the 100-year transformation of a rarefied domain to a public museum, independent research library, musical venue, architectural landmark, and historic site. 225 Madison Ave., 212-685-0008, themorgan.org
