Alcoholic spirits measures are instruments designed to measure exact amounts or shots of alcoholic spirits. The most common products used today to measure spirits are the thimble measure and the non-d
rip measure, often referred to as an optic. The terms Optic, Optic Pearl, OpticJade and OpticOpal are all trademarks of Gaskell & Chambers owned by the company IMI Cornelius (UK) Ltd, but the word “optic” has become synonymous with inverted or non-drip spirit measures. Other manufacturers, such as Beaumont TM, also supply this type of measuring device.
