Take five: Decanters

I was genuinely always under the impression that decanters were used purely for decorative purposes. As a child I would be in awe of crystal decanters with matching tumblers and anticipated the day I would be old enough to savour the whiskey or brandy that was displayed in such a ceremonial fashion.  The fact of the matter is that decanters first serve a practical purpose before it beautifies the drinking experience: it separates the drink from old sediments and bitter particles and aerates it to enhance the flavour.

Here are five of my favourite decanters:
