Standard Sloe Gin Cups
These standard SLOE GIN CUPS are 6 cms high, 5.5 cms across the rim and 4 cms at the base – they have a capacity of 75 mls and they are nice and wide at the base so they sit on a Landrover bonnet without tipping over.
My Sloe Gin Cups are available in sets of 6, 8, 10 or 12 cups and all numbered accordingly.
These cups have been a favourite for a long time and I can report that my own 25 year old set is still going strong – slightly scuffed yes, but after possibly 1000 outings the silver plating is still in excellent condition.
I still use the same Birmingham makers to make these (and others in the range) using the best heavy weight materials and thick silver plating, the insides are gold plated (gilded). Perfect for sloe gin.
Solid Silver Sloe Gin Cups
I can also supply these cups in sterling silver, exactly the same shape and size as the plated version. Each cup weighs about 75 germs and they are also gold washed on the inside. Sold in sets of 10 cups only.
Large Sloe Gin Cups
These large silver plated Sloe Gin cups hold 100 mls and are of a different shape to our standard sloe gin cups. They are a copy of a set of cups from an Edwardian picnic set that I bought on the Portabello Road some time ago, they have been faithfully reproduced by my spinners in Birmingham.
These heavy cups are 8cms high and 6cms across the top – they are a nice shape having a slightly fluted side with a distinct rim, again they are made from heavyweight material. They are gilded on the inside and numbered on the bottom, inside.
All of our cups come with a custom made leather case. There are now a large number of shoots that use our cases and cups and their robustness and quality is clear to see, especially when you consider the age of some sets, in some instances the sets are well over ten years old.
Our leather lined case is easily cleaned and wiped down should the remnants of a drink spill into it between elevenses and the end of the day.
The cups are made up of bridle leather and a pigskin lining. The outer of the case is a dark Havana coloured bridle leather and the lining of the case is a coloured pigskin with it’s finished side towards the cups for durability. The build process is a mix of machine stitching and hand box stitching on the case ends. This makes for a very strong and robust product.
Case and Cup Finishing
We can also personalise the case by embossing the case with initials, a name, or a shoot name.
In addition to this we can engrave the cups with initials, a crest, or an image. If you are interested engraving the silver cups please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the requirement and we will generate a quote for this bespoke service.
