The alchemical “decant” puts in an appearance now and then in chemistry contexts. It’s the winebibbers, though, who have managed to keep the word current.
Your Certificate of Oenology is automatically revoked if you tell your guests that you have “decanned the red wine.”
: “Vintage Inbossed Blue Glass and Gold Decanner and 6 Cups”
: “chrystal decanner and wine glasses”
: “Mosaic Candle Holder and Gold Decanner ”
: “i’m looking to see what my Emmitt Kelly whiskey decanner is worth”
: “ Decan the liquid from the solid.”
