The GriffonsHead tumbler is an 8 ounce tumbler for whiskey enthusiasts. Each tumbler is precision machined from aluminum and is anodized. In addition, to providing a durable finish to ensure years of enjoyment, the anodized surface produces a neutral, food-safe seal that will ensure no adverse flavor is imparted into your drink.
They say 75% of taste comes from smell. The inside of the tumbler is subtly curved inwards towards the top to focus the aromas of the whiskey.
The inside lower corners are generously curved to allow for easy cleaning by hand.
The tumblers are made from 6061-T6 aluminum round bar and are available in the following colors:
- orange (type 2 anodizing)
- gold (type 2 anodizing)
- grey (type 3 anodizing)
Other materials and colors may be introduced during the campaign, please let me know which new materials and colors you'd like to see.
The tumblers will be manufactured completely in my shop, on my equipment, which includes a CNC lathe and a CNC mill. The anodizing will be outsourced to a long standing and trusted vendor.
There is an early-bird reward that will be ready in time for Christmas. These tumblers will be aluminum and the color will be limited to grey.
Each tumbler will be individually packaged in a box, surrounded with batting for protection.
Shipping is included for Canada and the United States. If you are located somewhere else, please let me know and I can tell you what the difference in shipping is.
Risks and challenges
I am confident that manufacturing will be straightforward. I produced the prototypes on the same machine and with the same tooling that I plan to manufacture the rewards with.
Packaging and shipping will of course be a challenge. I have help available to me if the quantity of rewards becomes overwhelming.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
