Handcrafted in Uganda
These ethically sourced cow horn whisky tumblers are the perfect accompaniment to your favorite single-malt whiskey. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. These natural horn tumblers were hand carved on a lathe, and then shaped and molded 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. 100% Ankole cow horn, locally sourced in Uganda. Clean after each use using lukewarm water. Do not soak or put in dishwasher. Dry using a soft cloth. Avoid direct sunlight and other heat sources.
Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, these tumblers are truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.
Each tumbler is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.
