Warriors Toast Stoneware Bottles
Almost all cultures have special words or toasts to acknowledge the activity of bonding with others over drinks. The Celtic and Norse tribes were no exception. Fermented beverages played an important role in rituals and sacrifices. It brought people together to help create a sense of camaraderie and community. Mead and ale took on an almost supernatural power as they are often referenced in sagas and mythology. Mead was referred to as the “nectar of the gods.” Much of the Saxon epic poem Beowulf is set in a mead hall. So raise your drink, and toast to the long held traditions of the past. Skál! Sláinte! Cheers!

Stoneware was the preferred material for vessels in older times as the stoneware is not conductive. It maintains the temperature of its contents much as a thermos does.
The solid material also protects the contents from light. UV rays can damage or spoil certain brews, oils and vinegars. The stoneware prevents any light from getting in.
These vessels are available in 0.75L and 0.5L sizes.
These bottles were professionally made and glazed in Germany with the carving added by Celtic Hammer Club in the USA.
