Horn Wine Cup, Horn Mead Cup, Large Horn Dice Cup, Drinking Horn, Viking, Saxon, Medieval Drinking Vessel, Natural Horn, Sustainable Source.


Our drinking horns and cups are ready to use for anything cold that takes your fancy. These beaker style cups are made with a hardwood base which is bonded then sealed with a resin pad. Apart from drinking horns, these are the traditional drinking vessels of the Viking era, at that time there weren't mugs/tankards with handles.


The inside of the horn is already sealed with a food safe lacquer. Give them a quick rinse under cold water to remove any dust, and off you go.


Each wine cup stands approximately 4 to 5 inches in high and holds between 180 - 325 ml


Colours vary due to the fact that these are natural horn. If you have a preference regarding what size or colour you wish to receive, please message me prior to ordering.


All our horn products are fully tested for water tightness and come with care instructions as standard.


Some horns have an odour which will disappear over a period of time. The horns themselves are the last part of the meat industry and come from sustainable herds of buffalo. Nothing is wasted in the production of these drinking vessels. No animals are killed for their horns alone. Whilst we appreciate and respect that these items are not to everyone's taste, we would ask you to respect our views on the ancient use of these materials.

Wine and mead cup

  • These natural products are easy to look after, quite simply, keep them filled with mead.  For all non Vikings, a quick wash under the cold tap and a wipe sith a sponge is usually all that is needed. DO NOT leave them standing in water and do not use a dishwasher. ONLY fill with cool or cold liquids. DO NOT leave near a direct heat source including in a window where the sun can heat it excessively, this will cause warping.


    If you have any issues with your drinking vessel, please contact us.
