Holding two or four pints (approx) these resin lined Bombards, or leather jugs, modelled on those used in Ale Houses and country houses with their own brewing facility where ale would be brought to the table from the cellar. They were also used in Elizabethan Hospital and have an integral handle for greater strength.
Historically, leather bombards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather bombards 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.
All our products 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 bombard, please do use the “Add Personalisation” option above. More information regarding personalisation can be found here.
