Decanters are a useful and elegant way to store and serve many types of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink. They are used most commonly to hold wine and allow the drink to breathe, which improves the taste. When choosing a decanter, buyers should consider the material, its clarity, size, and shape.
A decanter with good clarity allows owners to see the colour and clarity of the liquid within clearly. This gives them an opportunity to judge the quality of the drink based on how it looks. This is especially important for those that decant older bottles of wine that contain sediment. A decanter with excellent clarity allows owners to see when the sediment settles to the bottom and the wine is ready to drink. Decanters with frosted or coloured glass make it difficult to judge the condition of the contents.
Most standard decanters hold around 750 ml of drink, which is also the standard size of most wine bottles. However, there are also smaller and larger decanters. Some people prefer smaller decanters when serving a drink with a high alcohol content. However, larger decanters are better for parties.
