The Horton Decanter and glasses
The Horton decanter idea was born to produce a charity fundraising project to contribute to the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust and display the skills and artwork of the artisan craftsmen involved. The concept was to produce a truly one-off piece of useable art that celebrates the "Macnab". This sporting achievement requires the bagging of the three finest elements of Scottish game within one sporting day, and it also reflects the Horton Scottish heritage.

The three-sided, lead crystal decanter depicts these images, deeply hand engraved in the traditional copper wheel method, by the UKs leading game engraver Carl Burton Palmer. It shows exquisite examples of a roaring stag, jumping salmon and flying grouse, in fabulous detail. In addition, this cased set includes four whisky tumblers depicting a capercaillie, partridge, woodcock and pheasant.

The Horton Decanter has also had added a unique sterling silver collar hand spun and Birmingham hallmarked. This has been adorned with in-house hand engraving by Clive Newland (formerly of Holland & Holland) and decorated with Horton style engraving and thistles reflecting the Scottish theme.

Mark Reynier, founder of Waterford Whisky, has very kindly donated the bottle of their Waterford 1st Cuvee Pilgrimage Whisky.

The complete set is encased in an oak and leather carrying case, in the style of finest gun motor cases and produced by master casemaker Martin Jones (formerly of Brady Ltd and Westley Richards).

1 bottle, decanter and four glasses
