Product Description

The history of having a glass bottom to a tankard comes from the days of the press gangs. They would drop a shilling into a drunken lad’s tankard so that when he finished his pint, he would be marched off to the navy. He couldn’t protest as it was seen as a firm contract to have ‘taken the King’s shilling’.

Pub landlords then asked the tankard makers to put a glass bottom in tankards so that their customers could keep an eye on their beer. They could easily check whether there was anything suspicious in their tankard before they had finished their beer.

We like to think with such a fine vessel in your hand you would be a ‘glass half full’ sort of person. But you could also be checking whether your glass is half empty to find out whose round it is next.

Your glass and pewter tankard is easy to look after by following a few simple rules. You can read more about cleaning pewter on another page, but you just hand wash in warm water, and dry with a soft cloth. You can polish it occasionally if it becomes dull, but some guys like their tankard to look a little ‘used’.

Great value tankard Review by Karl in Canberra Australia
Lovely tankard which arrived safely "Down Under" (Posted on 14/09/2017)
Excellent service, crackin product Review by Mark
Excellent customer service from Samantha, very helpful and professional, a real diamond. I ordered 2 x tankards on the 10th November, they arrived this morning (13th). The product looks and feels great, the engraving is brilliant. The tankards are retirement gifts for 2 colleagues and I'm sure they will be chuffed with them, especially when filled with a nice Belgian beer. Cheers! (Posted on 13/11/2015)

A nice tankard and a great service too Review by James
I ordered the tankard with custom engraving of two fairly complicated logos and I required it within a week. They managed to engrave the logos and deliver the tankard very quickly and the end result was fantastic. Thanks! (Posted on 12/09/2011)
