This leather hand made drinking vessel is intended for use by anyone who can appreciate fine ales, cider or wines consumed from attractive, durable and interesting vessels, as well as historic re-enactment groups, who wish to enjoy drinks from vessels to the age they portray. This leather wine goblet would make a wonderful gift for anyone, young and old. Goblet will hold approx 1/2 pint of liquid.
Historically, leather Jacks were lined with the boiled resin of the birch or pine trees. However, our leather goblets use Brewer's Pitch, a more easily obtained and longer lasting material which mirrors the original lining very well. The drinking vessels are waterproofed, or beer proofed, with brewer's pitch, being the traditional method of caulking wooden beer casks, or lining water tanks and pipes prior to the advent of modern epoxy resins. Brewer's pitch is an oil based product purified by having hot oxygen blown through it. It is acceptable in contact with cold consumable liquids when the contact is transitory and not long term storage, as ale and wine normally is, at least in the leather tankards as used by us!
Please note: due to the nature of this hand made product, colour may vary.
They will last a lifetime and longer if looked after. If you squeeze the body too hard the pitch may crack. Pitched lined vessels can be repaired by gentle remelting of the pitch surface with a hot, flat knife blade. The body may be polished from time to time but always use a leather cream, which will soak in, rather than a hard wax which will stay on the surface.
Care instructions: Wash by swilling out with clear, cold water and clean the outside with a wet cloth. It does not matter if the outside gets wet but it must not be immersed in water. Use ONLY FOR COLD drinks. The vessel will take all carbonated drinks except coke and neat spirits. Do not attempt to squeeze the vessel.
