This pretty little goblet is perhaps for the more discerning drinker. Whilst it is still suitable for a decent glass of wine it is perhaps not so much suited for the beer drinker. Certainly suitable for the spirit drinker though. It is made from english elm and has a protective lacuer coatng that is waterproof and alchohol resistant. Ideal gift for the person oin your life who likes to have and use things that are different.
