An authentic reproduction in pewter of one of the eight silver drinking cups designed by Thomas Jefferson and made for him by John Letelier of Richmond, Virginia. Five of the original cups are on display at Monticello Jefferson's home in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Jefferson Cup can be personalized with a monogram or name. Each one is handcrafted in the USA in our Middlebury, Vermont workshop.

Pewter barware is excellent for cold drinks. Pewter retains a pleasant chill and traps in a liquid's coldness, making it perfect for a cold beer, wine, and iced drinks like mint juleps. Many people who have tried sipping out of pewter barware now swear by it!

Please note it is not advisable to drink hot drinks out of pewter mugs because of the melting point of the metal. We recommend hand-washing all pewter barware with warm soap and water, then drying it completely with a cloth.

Our pewter meets or exceeds all FDA food-safety standards.
