Classic Tin Cup


"This simple relic is probably the purest way to enjoy your favorite whiskey." — Uncrate

If these cups could talk, what a tale they would tell. Raise a toast to history with America's original tin cup, just as our forefathers did over the creation of our great nation. In 1819, our company was handcrafting these tin cups without welding, soldering, or rivets, and we're still producing them the same way today with a little help from the original machinery and equipment. Take a sip from this outrageously authentic American cup, and travel back in time to those simpler days. Forget about the telephone and Internet, and instead enjoy a peaceful moment much like the cowboy tending his herd, the explorer drinking from an unspoiled stream, or a Civil War soldier relishing a quiet moment between battles. Standard issue during the Civil War, each tin cup is both hand and machine crafted and makes the perfect gift for the history buff, the busy executive, and any guy or gal who appreciates nostalgia. So let your imagination flow as you enjoy this epic relic of Americana. You'll surprisingly bring history to life with each sip.

This a a great cup. I t is very comfortable to hold for long periods of time. I intend to use this shiney cup to beg on the street corners in Washington DC. The cup is so nice that I am sure that I will make up the salary lost from the unpaid Furlough days being forced on government employees. This definitely makes me feel almost self-employed...who would have thought!
