Whisky Tumblers - Set of Two

60.00

These sustainably and ethically sourced Ankole Cow horn Whisky Tumblers aren't just a means to thirst quenching, but are truly a work of art.

A unique accompaniment to your favourite single-malt whisky while celebrating with friends, or to peacefully sip water the morning after!

Shades of black and white meld together with warmer shades of brown to create an singularly individual drinking vessel whose smooth yet tactile surface is a pleasure to touch.  

Made from the horn of Ankole cows which are bred for consumption in Uganda. Although the horns are considered a waste product, horn can be a high end, natural material. 

These natural horn tumblers were hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and moulded at high temperatures to fit perfectly in your hand. They were meticulously sanded, polished, and then sealed with a food-safe lacquer for a smooth and shiny finish. 

Each tumbler is individually hand-crafted by an artisan in a fair trade environment and would make the perfect gift for the discerning whisky drinker. Imperfections should be expected and simply add to the charm of your handmade good.

Impact

Horn product manufacture

The manufacture of our horn products benefits both people and planet; through the reduction of waste and pollution, with income generation for local Ugandan people through the resulting horn crafting industry. 

Recognising the horns natural beauty, and its valuable properties of being both durable and malleable when heated, will hopefully ensure the survival of these magnificent creatures which are currently being cross-bred into extinction.
