Top of the morning to you! Hand-crafted from creamy white Parian china, each mug is meticulously embossed in your choice ancient Celtic symbols or a Claddagh, adding a distinctly Irish look to your morning coffee or tea.

Mug Choices

  • Claddagh - The symbolic meaning of the heart means love, the hands clasping the heart mean friendship and the crown over the heart means loyalty or fidelity.
  • Celtic - The Celts were the inhabitants of Western Europe during the emergence of the Roman Empire. Later with successive movements of tribes westewards, the Celts became confined to the western British Isles including Ireland. There, during the 10th Century, Irish monks created wonderful illuminated manuscripts with artistic symbolism dating back to the earliest times.

Wine Glass Types

Red Wine Glass: A red wine glass displays a fuller, rounder bowl than most glasses. This allows you to dip your nose into the glass to experience the wine's aroma. The bulbous setting of the glass allows the bouquet to aerate and develop while the longer stem provides the ability to swish the glass.

White Wine Glass: These glasses showcase more of a U-shape than red wine glasses. This allows a more concentrated aroma (whites are often not as pungent as reds) while also maintaining cool temperature.

Sparkling Wine Glass: The sparkling wine glass is most commonly known as a flute. This is because of its long, thin shape. This shaping helps the wine retain its carbonation and preserve flavoring.

Dessert Wine Glass: The dessert wine glass is the smallest type. Its short stem and glass are contrasted with a wide bouquet. Dessert wines have the highest concentration of alcohol, making their short stature a necessity. Finally, the wide bouquet allows the wine to aerate and develop properly overtime.
