Why Choose Pewter?

Why choose pewter?

Soldiers, explorers and even a pope carried a hip flask – the latter “for medical reasons”. Traditionally hip flasks have long been a mans a favourite accessory.

But why choose a pewter drinking vessel over other metals?

When it comes to drinking from a hip flask or tankard you really want to be able to taste the alcohol and not the flask.  Some other metals can give a slight metallic flavour as you take your favourite tipple, pewter doesn’t leave a metallic taste in your mouth so you can enjoy the actual flavour of your drink. Pewter is also an excellent metal for helping maintain your chosen liquid at the right temperature something is quite important when it comes to drinking a good whiskey or beer.
