Samuel Plimsoll, MP, is remembered for his safe load waterline mark, introduced to prevent unscrupulous shipping owners from overloading their ships and so taking excessive risks with the lives of their crews. The Plimsoll Line is now found on all commercial ships throughout the world.

This attractive whisky glass is etched with an image of Samuel Plimsoll, as well as it's very own 'Plimsoll Line', in this case used to mark the 'safe load' for a generous helping of spirit.

  • Capacity: 160 ml to line
