This handmade copper cup is just about the perfect gentleman’s “garage mug”, it’s made by a craftsman in a small factory, by a company that has specialized in tin and copper kitchenware items for over 200 years.
Each cup is made from 100% copper and has been “hot-tinned” on the inside to allow it to hold liquids without oxidising, it can be dropped without braking and holds beer just as well as it holds coffee.
