Toast a dram in a truly unique handcrafted wooden whisky tumbler made from local sustainable timber from Speyside, Scotland - the heart of malt whisky country.
Our tumblers offer unique and distinct properties to enhance your drinking pleasure, which cannot be found in glass. Over time, they begin to retain the notes and flavour of whisky, just like the wooden casks that matured these characteristics originally.
Due to the natural materials and handcrafted process involved in every individual tumbler we create, you will experience a uniqueness of warmth and tactile qualities which cannot be replicated in any modern day mass production.
Our Barrel design whisky tumblers are carefully hand crafted using a Swedish carving axe and drawknife to carve and shape the outside of the tumbler. They are then turned on the foot operated pole lathe using various wood turning gouges and chisels to achieve a smooth, natural finish. Using the primitive fire by friction tradition, 2 hooped lines are then burnt onto both the top and bottom of the tumbler using a wooden ash shaving. Using a hand auger the inside is then drilled out and the tumbler side walls are finely carved out using crook knives to give the perfect drinking experience.
A personalised handwritten message of your choice on the tumbler base (up to 45 characters) or you can choose the signature Gedwood handwritten message. See illustrated photos showing both of these options.
