In ancient times the five tips of a Pentagram were seen as symbols of spirit, air, earth, fire and water. The circle surrounding the Pentagram represented the harmony and balance of nature. A Pentagram enclosed by a circle, becomes a Pentacle. Used on Tarot cards and in Wiccan rituals, the Pentacle is seen as a sign of protection.
All our beer tankards and jacks are handmade from natural materials which can never be consistent in colour. Whilst every endeavour is made to control colour consistency, each item is offered as an individual piece. However, it will always be the actual colour ordered.
If you would prefer a personalised beer tankard or jack, please do use the “Add Personalisation” option above. More information regarding personalisation can be found here.
Historically, leather tankards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather drinking vessels are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.

In the run up to Christmas we have a large stock of our hand carved items. However, as we are now attending York Christmas Market until 22rd December 2023, we will be unable to make any more carved stock before Christmas.
We will mark items as “out of stock” as we go along.
If you wish to check on stock levels before placing an order, you may contact us here.
Due to Brexit restrictions, we unfortunately have had to suspend delivery to countries within the EU.
