Your New Copper Mugs

All of our copper mule mugs are made from 100% pure high-grade food-safe copper. Our copper cups are ideal for the moscow mule (also known as the "mule drink") and a variety of other beverages, including beer, iced coffee, iced tea, juice, and any kind of cocktail. In order to protect your health, the interior of all of our copper cups are lined with high-grade stainless steel – see our FAQ to learn why this is important!

Our moscow mule cups are handcrafted with care using traditional methods and are painstakingly hammered by hand to create a gorgeous aesthetic. Our handles are also welded rather than riveted which ensures that your mug will be water-tight and leak free - guaranteed. We’ve worked hard to ensure that our mugs are of exceptional quality.

Our copper mule mugs are unique in that they help lock in a drink's coolness and transmit an icy cold experience directly to your lips. Our mugs are not only highly functional, but are beautiful and will stand out in your kitchen or bar. Our mugs also have numerous uses which make them perfect for those who love to entertain.

Cleaning Instructions

Your copper mug will be ready to join the party right out of the box, but we do recommend washing the inside with warm water and a drop of liquid soap before drinking from it for the first time.               

Your copper mug is made of stainless steel on the interior (which is necessary since copper reacts with acids). The copper on the exterior will naturally patina over time. Many of our customers like having the exterior of their copper mug age gracefully into a beautiful copper patina, but, if you prefer the shine of copper, it is very easy to remove. Simply sprinkle a pinch of salt on a slice of lemon, allow the salt to dissolve, and then gently rub it on the surface of your mug. The lemon and salt will form a mixture that will naturally remove the patina and restore the copper’s shine. Once done, rinse with water and dry well.

You should always clean your copper mug by hand with a soft cloth and avoid using harsh scouring pads or a dishwasher. We also recommend cleaning the interior of your copper mug after each use with warm water and a drop of liquid soap, and then rinsing and drying well.


We are very proud of the fact that Moscow Muled is a social enterprise. That means that our primary goal isn't to make profit, but to make the world a better place.

We meet that goal by donating 15% of our profits to several non-profit organizations that work to stop impaired driving.
