A decanter is an essential item when it comes to completing one’s home bar. Not only does it have a functional purpose, but the right decanter can really bring the whole aesthetic of a home bar together.
On the wine side of things, decanters help to aerate wine while allowing sediment (if there is any) to fall to the bottom. On the whiskey (or rum, añejo tequilas, etc) side of things, they don’t serve the same purpose, but we’ll be damned if putting a bottle of our favorite liquor into a decanter doesn’t make it look like it’s ready to be named Time’s Person of the Year. For this reason, we here The Manual are teaming up with the luxury decanter brand Royal Decanters to give away one decanter set to three lucky winners!
Basically, we want you to have the best-looking bar on the block, and all you have to do is fill out a form. It literally could not be easier than that. (Okay, you could inherit a vintage decanter from someone, but then there is probably going to be the crushing emotion of the loss of a loved one attached to that decanter, which will still make it more difficult overall. We don’t want that and we don’t want that for you. We’re all about having fun here, hence the chance to win a decanter for free.)
Each winner will get to choose from one of three Royal Decanter gift sets. The sets are the Skull-Shaped Glass Whiskey Decanter ($60), the Etched Globe Whiskey Decanter (a $95 value), and the Sailing Ship Whiskey Decanter ($120). Each decanter holds at least 750mL of liquid (the globe holds an additional 100mL) and comes on a wooden base, which also serves as a home for the four glasses that come in each set. The decanters are lead-free, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about the spirit that you’re putting into it. The decanters are made to last, too, but if they don’t, each comes with a lifetime warranty.
This giveaway runs for a week — Friday, June 22 through Friday, June 29 — so get your entries in now!
