This handmade oak tumbler offers a luxurious new way to experience your favourite spirit. The inside has been charred to seal the wood grain, and replicates the Master Taster's first sip from the oak aging cask. Every sip of scotch, whiskey, bourbon or wine will be like drinking straight from the barrel, every time.
Each Oak Tumbler is hand turned from a single block of white oak, dried over 6 weeks, and then lightly charred on the inside to seal the wood grain, and provide a slightly smokey aroma.
The exterior is sanded smooth and polished with beeswax and pasteurized coconut oil, allowing you to feel the soft texture of the wood grain against your lip.
Let the outside develop a nice antique oak patina with use, or keep up the warm glow of the oak by occasionally polishing with a wax polish.
Retain the integrity of the tumbler by not leaving liquids to sit in it over night. Hand wash with clear water only, please do not put wood in the dishwasher.
Made by Stinson Studios in Tamworth, Ontario.
About Stinson Studios:
Stinson Studios is a two generation family woodworking business dating back to 1982. Since that time, the Stinsons have transformed a passion for woodworking as a cathartic exercise, into a thriving business with retail partners across North America.
Our locally sourced Canadian materials are a key to the success of our work. In particular, we are drawn to the rich natural spaulting patterns that can be found in aged or scared wood.
The Ambrosia Maple Bowls with “finger spaulting” or “starburst” patterns, that we have become known for, are a perfect example of spaulting that happens naturally during a trees' life span.
Over the past few decades, we have developed methods of naturally spaulting wood by burying and aging it for up to 18 months. By embracing nature and aging we can enhance the unique characteristics of different woods and create pieces with a balance between form, function and the incredible variation found in nature.
