Classic, conical-shaped, glass whiskey noggin, or individual whiskey server, with a plain silver flip lid and thumbpiece. The base features a crisply cut starburst decoration. This whiskey noggin will hold 3 fl ozs of your favourite malt whiskey.

Called a "go to bed", or "chota peg" in anglo-Indian colonial speak, the whisky noggin is traditionally considered to be of Scottish origin.

The whiskey noggin is used for serving an individual portion of whisky equivalent to a about gill (quarter of a pint) and sufficient to have a soporific effect on the drinker.
