Unlike other copper mugs, our mugs are not plated or lined, but are handcrafted of the highest quality from solid copper, giving you all the wonderful benefits of sipping from a copper mug.
What are those benefits? Temperature, taste, and the overall experience.
Temperature: Chilled drinks in copper mugs offer an extra-cool sensation with less ice, due to the metal being an efficient conductor. When you pour a cold cocktail into a copper mug, the entire surface of the mug becomes chilly almost instantly, offering a frozen sensation on your lips. The handle of the mug helps maintain drink temperature, keeping the near 100 degree body heat of your hand away from the walls of the mug, and your cocktail safely chilled inside. You can also try sipping hot beverages out of a copper mug. The inverse would be true - the drink would appear warmer.
Taste: Some experts say using copper mugs for Moscow Mules enhance the individual flavors of the ginger beer and vodka. When vodka touches the walls of the mug, the copper begins to oxidize, slightly boosting the aroma, and enhancing the taste of the vodka. Cold copper also has a tendency to increase the amount of bubbles in the carbonated ginger beer, bringing maximum fizziness to the Moscow Mule.
The Experience: A martini just doesn’t seem right unless it’s served in the classic, stemmed glass vortex, with the spirits swirling around a sunken olive. The same is true for the Moscow Mule and in fact, many other cocktails would benefit from this sleek and stunning copper mug!
