Birds Of Prey
Our drinking vessels are lined with either an epoxy resin or alternatively brewers pitch. Click here for more information within the Internal Lining section of our Facts page.
The Kestrel and Owl, both birds of prey, are known as Raptors meaning birds equipped to hunt prey. The Kestrel is a small, long tailed falcon which hunts by means of its ability to hover, seemingly motionless, for lengthy periods.
The Owl is one of Britain's best loved birds, personifying stealth and cunning by way of its, noiseless flight, made possible by its soft plumage.
Both breeds have sensitive eyesight, dependent upon species, between 35 and 100 times more sensitive than human beings.
