Like something out of Ernest Hemingway's bar or the Explorer's Club lounge, horn tumblers add a high dosage of sophisticated style to any proper drinking setup.
But unfortunately, you almost never know where and how the natural materials were obtained.
And that's where Rose & Fitzgerald steps in.
The new kitchenware company strictly uses sustainable and ethical manufacturing processes to produce their product, teaming with African artisans who meticulously craft each piece by hand.
In this case, the tumblers are exclusively made using the discarded horns of Ankole-Watusi, a domesticated cattle breed native to the continent, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to taste. "Each set of Ankole-Watusi horns is like a thumbprint," they say. "No two are the same and feature unique differences that make each product rare and one-of-a-kind."
Meticulously sanded, polished, and then sealed with a food-safe lacquer for a smooth and shiny finish, these will make that next dram of whiskey taste even better while adding a handsome touch to the home bar. Pick up a pair for your spot here.
