This is a small glass designed to take a measure of a spirit or liqueur which is normally drunk in one go, or ‘shot’. The earliest shot glasses were American and designed for whiskey; they were all hand blown and some even had handles. They still come in a variety of shapes, colours and styles and although are not the best for savouring your drink from, they are something no glass cabinet should be without.
