When we think of a drink that someone would want to have a good time, whiskey is favored by many. Why not celebrate a good time with something that speaks of classic style. Full of vintage charm with a dash of modern shine, this pewter whiskey set from the geniuses at Mullingar Pewter allows anyone to enjoy their favorite whiskey with charming style! Made in Ireland, the set includes an 8-ounce hip flask that is hand-engraved with lovely Celtic Knot designs, two shot glasses, and one measure. The shape of the hip flask is practical and genius in its unique design. Quite the practical piece. The curvature and shape of the hip flask is meant to be formed to the person’s hip in a discrete manner, hence the name hip flask.
The hip flask is meant to be purchased with no contents of alcohol, with the owner filling it up themselves. The two shot glasses will make it easier and more convenient to serve your favorite whiskey from the hip flask. When we think of whiskey, we think of its rich, beautiful brown color; varying from a pale gold to a dark amber. The word “whiskey”, is anglicized from the Gaelic term “uisce beatha”, meaning “water of life”. At one point, Irish whiskey was considered to be one of the most popular spirits in the world. At a point during the 1890s, Ireland had over 30 whiskey distilleries. It spoke volumes of its taste and quality.
Although there was a decline in distilleries, the Irish whiskey has made a resurgence within the last quarter century. There has been significant growth of them in Ireland. Even though it has not reached past peak numbers, there are now 18 whiskey distilleries in Ireland, with many more of them to come. It goes to show that there will always be a demand for great Irish whiskey. The Celtic Knot patterns appeared in the 3rd and 4th centuries AD and can be seen in mosaics that would be found on many of the floors in Ancient Rome. By the advent of the 7th Century, the Knotwork pattern that would be found in Italy and present day France, made its way to Ireland.
Today, the Celtic Knot has become a symbol of love and friendship, that could also be found many different forms of jewelry and furniture. All four of the pieces are made of polished pewter and made in Ireland. Packaged in a compact cherry wood box with protective, soft, rich red velvet lining, Gaelic Whiskey Set by Mulligar Pewter makes an excellent gift for someone who loves classic elegance with a fresh touch!
