FAQ

Are your mugs made of pure copper?

Yes, all of our copper mugs are made of 100% pure high-grade and food-safe copper. In order to protect your health, the interior of our copper mugs are lined with a layer of high-grade nickel.

It’s very important that your copper mug is lined with nickel. That’s because copper is a heavy metal that reacts with acidic fluids such as cocktail ingredients. If you use a copper mug that is not lined with nickel, the acidic fluids in your drink will cause a chemical reaction which may cause you to ingest too much copper, leading to an unhealthy and potentially dangerous concentration of copper in your body.

Unfortunately, many manufacturers that sell copper mugs without any nickel lining fail to warn their customers about the potential health consequences. In order to avoid negative health effects for you and your friends and family, please make sure to only use copper mugs that are plated with nickel on the inside.

The nickel lining in our copper mugs also has an added functional benefit. Because copper is a very soft metal, it can become damaged by repeated use. Nickel plating increases the strength and durability of your copper mug and greatly extends its life!

How do you make your copper mugs?

All of our copper mugs are handcrafted with care using traditional methods. Our mugs are also carefully and painstakingly hammered by hand to create a gorgeous aesthetic. Every mug will be unique and may have some imperfections which add to the character of the piece. They are of exceptional quality.

Unfortunately, many other manufacturers (mostly those based in India and selling on Amazon, Ebay and Etsy) falsely claim to sell pure copper mugs that are actually plain metal mugs plated with copper. The copper plating will start to rub off these mugs after only a few months of use. Many of our customers came to us and bought our copper mugs after having a bad experience with one of these manufactures. While these manufacturers are able to offer their mugs for sale at a lower price than our mugs, they are not the real thing!

How are the handles attached to your copper mugs?

All of our copper mugs are handcrafted with handles that have been welded (rather than riveted) to the body of the copper mug, which leaves it intact on the inside and ensures that it remains water-tight and leak free. This is the absolute best way to attach a handle to a copper mug.

Unfortunately, many other manufacturers sell copper mugs with riveted handles that can leak. Because their handles are riveted rather than welded (like ours), the rivets create holes in the body of the mug. This results in leakage, which the manufactures try to prevent by applying glue to the rivets. Unfortunately, the glue they use is quite toxic and can contaminate your drink. Please make sure to avoid these manufacturers!

How do I clean my copper mug?

Easy! Clean the inside of your copper mug with warm water, soap and a soft cloth. Be sure to never wash your copper mug with detergents or in a dishwasher.

Your copper mug is made of 100% pure copper, so its surface will naturally patina over time. Many of our customers like having the exterior of their mugs 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.

Our copper mugs hold approximately 16 ounces and are approximately 3.75 inches in height, 4.75 inches in width, and 3.25 inches in diameter.
