The 11 Best Decanters for Your Home Bar

There’s nothing wrong with displaying your liquor in its proprietary bottles. In fact, some bottles look like works of art. But sometimes, you need something more—something that both aerates and elevates your spirit. That’s where decanters come into play. Not only do decanters open up spirits and make excellent decorations (even when empty), they also happen to make for great gifts.

From classic designs to avant-garde innovations, these are Supercall’s favorite decanters to buy right now.

Love & Victory Everyday & The Good Stuff Decanter Set
