This lovely stainless pint steel tankard with its glass bottom makes an ideal gift for any ale loving gentleman.
The tradition behind the glass bottom tankard is still debated with some people saying it was designed as a way of refusing the King's shilling in other words conscription in to the army or navy. The drinker could see the coin in the bottom of the glass and refuse the drink, thereby avoiding conscription. Another story goes that the drinker could see a punch coming if you were drinking when the first punch was thrown or just as a means of being able to check the clarity of the ale being drunk.
To make it the perfect gift we will engrave it with your personal message thereby making it a very personal gift for whatever occasion it is for whether it be a birthday, retirement or as a thank you gift for a member of your wedding party.
