Product Description

The history of having glass in the bottom of a tankard dates back to the press gangs trying to dupe men into joining the Navy. The glass bottom was introduced by pubs to reassure drinkers that no one could slip a ‘King’s shilling’ into their ale. Nowadays that risk does not exist but the tradition has lasted.

It does offer a talking point, of course, if you need a conversation opener, but it could also just be a way to enjoy a beer in a good looking tankard.

If you want to make this a collector’s item and it’s intended to lie on a glass shelf, then choose your message and have it engraved on the outside of the tankard. As this tankard is nice and plain, you could have your message on the front or the back.

And as you can see from the customer comments, we still manage to get your tankard out really quickly, with or without engraving. Why delay? Oder today, drink tomorrow…well if you order before 1pm today!

Most Impressed Review by Steve Howard
Engraving is perfect and exactly what I had envisaged. The tankard itself is great quality and nice and heavy, and the wooden presentation box made it look very special. And... delivery was quick as promised. Most impressed. :) (Posted on 25/03/2020)
High Quality Review by Troy
I was extremely impressed with the level of service and communication from David and the buyatankard team. Being based in Sydney and with time differences, David made the process simple, easy and resulted in delivering 6x customised tankards which was stress free, high quality and as per my instructions. I will be recommending buyatankard. Thanks David and team, you nailed our requests. (Posted on 19/02/2020)

excellent product and service Review by lizzie printer
I ordered a tankard for my brother in law's 50th and although I didn't have any ideas about what I was going to engrave it with was delighted to find a Scottish crest of his clan name. The tankard arrived really swiftly. Having left the font and size to the discretion of the company, I was really pleased with the end design and the quality of the product. I would definitely order from you again. Many thanks, (Posted on 10/10/2017)
FABULOUS personal gift X Review by Alice
I recently contacted Buy a Tankard to ask if it might be possible to scan and engrave a message written by my 5 year old onto a tankard. Indeed it was and the result is absolutely beautiful! A present for my husband's 50th birthday - he was overwhelmed with the tankard and engraved message written by our son. A beautiful gift, so well done, so prompt and great communication from the company throughout the process. A blue presentation box finished the gift off nicely. Thoroughly recommend! Thank you X (Posted on 23/05/2016)
Instrumental in honoring our WW2 heroes. Review by Jean Claude Charlebois
I'm so glad I found I'm totally impressed with the service and dedication of Samantha and Neil at buyatankard. They went out of their way to make sure everything we needed was done to perfection. The on-line chat feature on this web site made it possible to communicate in real time from Canada to Scotland and that made the ordering process so much easier. Although it not normal practice to send proof copies of the product before production, Neil and Samantha realized the special nature of our order (a gift to honor the crew of one of the few remaining WW2 Lancaster pilots) and they wanted to make sure that everything was absolutely perfect before proceeding with the final engraving, including a special RCAF insignia. The order was shipped in a day following proof acceptance. Thank you and special thanks to Samantha and Neil for the outstanding service. (Posted on 10/06/2014)
Excellent product and service Review by Ted Dixon
I found the tankard easy to order on line on Sunday, and today (Tuesday) it was delivered. This seems to me amazingly quick and especially impressive as engraving had to be done to the tankard before sending.

The tankard and engraved lettering are exactly as I expected from the website.
I am very pleased. (Posted on 01/02/2011)
