How Wine Decanters Improve Your Drinking Experience

by Mamie Conrad

You can remove the sediments by using wine decanters. They are a special type of glass that separates the liquor liquid from the sediments that developed through the years of storing the liquor in the bottle. If you notice, there are sediments settling at the bottom of the bottle.

These sediments are significant symbol about the age of your liquor. The liquor is supposed to taste good at this point. The more aged the wine is, the better is its taste. But what happens is that the bitter the wine tastes because of these sediments. The sediments are fruit skins that slipped through the strainer.

If these sediments are removed, the liquor will taste bitter. Pouring the liquor into this glass removes it of its bitterness. The liquor will look more crystal clear if you pass through this process before serving it to your guests.

The aroma is also improved when the sediments are removed. That is because pouring the liquor to the glass lets the liquor breathe. You let it mix with the oxygen of its environment and it enhances the flavor the liquor more. The sediments taste bitter. That is why when they are not removed, the bitterness is transferred to the liquid or the liquor. Also, it is not appetizing to look at sediments sinking to the bottom of your liquor glass.

You do not want that in your drink. That is why you need to separate these sediments from the drink to let the flavor of the liquor come out. It has also been found that when you sit the liquor for a certain period of time, in a matter of hours only, in this glass, it will taste better and smells more like liquor.

Or, worst, choking. Although these sediments are not dangerous to human's health because these are just skins of fruits and the yeast in this fermentation process is not known to have any negative effects in the body, it would be nice for these sediments to be nonexistent in your liquor glass. You just want to have a clear liquid, swirling through your glass.

Transferring your liquor into this kind of glass makes the liquor tastes good. Instead of the bitterness of the sediments, what you will taste is the sweetness of the liquor and its aroma. According to expert, letting your liquor stays in this kind of glass for an indicated period of hours allows oxygen to mix into the liquid.
