Oak tankards are by far the more popular sort of tankard I make. This is made of English Oak. Of course it is, you may say. But English oak isn't always easy to find. Most of the Oak used in Britain has been imported since the sixteenth century, mainly from the Baltic countries but more recently from North America. The colour is generally mid-brown, but it can vary considerably.

This is a handmade wooden drinking tankard, made in the traditional way, i.e., coopered, not turned. It holds slightly more than a pint because the ale always foams up, no matter how carefully you pour it. It's finished in a food-safe, highly alcohol-resistant lacquer. This photo is representative of the tankard, but each tankard is unique. Colour and grain pattern vary considerably. I sell from stock and usually post the tankard on the day after it is sold. Royal Mail aim to deliver First Class Signed-for packages the next day, although in my experience it usually takes 2 working days.

I can't do wholesale. This is a hand-crafting enterprise, not a manufacturing business, so the costs are the same for each tankard. The tankards are made by jointing 12 staves, not turned from a single piece of wood, and each tankard takes about 5 hours of work to make (it actually takes about 4 weeks, but most of that time is waiting for glue to harden, waiting for lacquer to dry, etc).
At the moment, I'm trying to build up stock and extend my range, so I'm not accepting any special requests. However, I may do so once I've got enough stock for day-to-day orders. The hoops can be engraved (any shop selling sporting trophies can do this).
The '1-pint' tankards are really a bit bigger than 1 pint, in order to allow room for a head on the beer. The tankards are about 6 inches high, 3 and a half inches diameter at the top, 4 inches diameter at the bottom.
The small tankards hold well over 1/2 pint (they were originally designed to hold a can of coke).
I include a 'care of the tankard' leaflet with every tankard, but generally the tankard needs very little care, as it’s finished in a very tough lacquer that will last the life of the tankard. The brass or copper hoops will tarnish over a period of times and if they’re not polished they’ll lose their shine. To keep the hoops bright, they’ll need to be cleaned with a brief, light rub of metal polish around every 3 months. After use, the tankard should be rinsed out with cold or luke-warm water. It should NEVER be put in a microwave or a dishwasher.
Sorry, I don't do gift wrapping.
Yes, they're made to be used for drinking beer or cider. I don't really know how long the tankards will last, but my personal, well-used, tankard is 25 years old and still fine. I'm sometimes asked if they can be used for drinking tea or coffee. The answer is yes, if you must, but if you drink a lot of coffee, it'd be a lot cheaper to buy a cup.
