Our Oak Sippers are a smaller version of the Oak Tumblers. They provide a rich sensory experience striving to echo the Master Tasters' first dip into the oak aging cask.
Our handmade oak sippers are flame toasted on the inside, heat sealing the wood grain, and replicating the slightly smokey, oak cask aging conditions of your favourite scotch, whiskey, tequila, vodka, rye or bourbon.
You've enjoyed your favourite spirit in an inert glass tumbler, now experience it come alive returned to the cask. White Oak makes the cups very durable and the perfect glass for the cottage, country house, boat, or sitting around outside with friends.
Our Oak Sippers hold up to 2oz. They are available in natural and ebonized oak. Oak is ebonized through a food-safe vinegar and iron based process, leaving it strikingly dark with a hint of the natural oak grain. The sippers come in a set of 2 or 4.
Each Oak Sipper is hand turned from a single block of white oak, dried over 6 weeks, and then lightly charred on the inside to seal the wood grain, and provide a slightly smokey aroma.
The exterior is sanded smooth and polished with beeswax and pasteurized coconut oil, allowing you to feel the soft texture of the wood grain against your lip.
Let the outside develop a nice antique oak patina with use, or keep up the warm glow of the oak by occasionally polishing with a wax polish.
Retain the integrity of the vessel by not leaving liquids to sit in it over night. Hand wash with clear water, or to sterilize for a commercial setting, wash with a mixture of oxygen bleach and water. Please do not put wood in the dishwasher.
