Trunk Giveaway: Jacob Bromwell Collector’s Copper Cup

Established in 1819, Jacob Bromwell is America’s oldest cookware company. All of their top quality products are still handcrafted in the USA, just like they were in frontier days. You may remember we did a chestnut roaster giveaway with them around the holidays.

Well they recently introduced a new product to their unique line-up of old fashioned items: a copper cup. Back in pioneer times, in the days before thermoses and insulated cups, folks relied on copper’s special ability to keep beverages hot or cold. These copper cups will keep cold drinks chilled for ages and keep hot beverages like cocoa warm for drinking by the fire on a wintery night. The cups are hand dipped and entirely hand made using tools from the 1700s. They’re incredibly sturdy and will last for generations.

Jacob Bromwell is giving away one of these copper cups to one lucky AoM Trunk winner. If you’d like to have this handsome copper cup sitting in your cabinet, just leave a comment telling us your favorite beverage to put in a mug. One comment will be randomly drawn as the winner.

Giveaway ends April 10, 2012.

Some high octane lock-n-load java

Sean April 7, 2012 at 10:47 pm

The only kind of liquid that is scientifically proven to give you chest hair: black coffee

Ryan Nicholas Koster April 8, 2012 at 2:15 am

Gasoline on the rocks. Make that two.

Bill Johnstone April 8, 2012 at 6:54 am

Guinness Stout

Bill April 8, 2012 at 7:05 am

If I had a copper cup from America’s oldest cookware company, the only thng I would drink from it would be America’s native spirit — rye whiskey.

It will be worth the weight in the backpack in order to enjoy a cool copper cup of spring water around the evening campfire.

Jason Moore April 8, 2012 at 9:40 am

There are only 2 beverages worthy of the mug, the black coffee or liquid gold that is Guinness.

Curtis April 8, 2012 at 10:50 am

On a cold night that cup would most graciously contain a healthy serving of some mulled wine.

Mark Graves April 8, 2012 at 11:07 am

warmed rum while sitting on deck smoking a good cigar. don’t get any better.

Nick Clemens April 8, 2012 at 11:44 am

probably ice tea

Larry April 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Cocoa? Coffee? Come on ! The only proper drink for a Copper Cup is a Moscow Mule. It goes really well with the boys,cigars and baseball on the big screen.

Devin Thompson April 8, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Tea in the morning and Scotch in the evening.

Kelvin Lysek April 8, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Extra thick coffee and a shot of Bourbon. Sunday morning wake up cup for decades

I have been rather keen on some Guiness Black lager as of late.

Jacob Croom April 8, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Black coffee, or echinacea tea if I’m sick

Jason Waters April 8, 2012 at 6:43 pm

A cup surely earned

Andrew Snyder April 8, 2012 at 6:48 pm

From a copper still to a copper cup. I say this would be a perfect sipping cup for some moonshine or even some sarsparilla.

Ian K April 8, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Beer, glorious beer.

Ethan Gray April 8, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Over proof rum.

From this particular mug, absolutely a Moscow Mule.

J. Cornwell April 8, 2012 at 10:17 pm

Campfire coffee. The grounds are an important part of breakfast.

Some baked beans cooked on a camp fire in that mug for sure.

Plenty of black coffee–with a touch of irish cream on special occasions.

PM April 9, 2012 at 10:12 am

I’ve got a bottle of Macallan 21 with a couple of whiskey stones I’ve been saving for a special occasion. Sounds about perfect.

Ben Fagan April 9, 2012 at 10:52 am

Earl Grey, Hot

An ice cold Shiner Beer. Doesn’t get any better!

Sounds like the perfect container for a nice peppermint cocoa…

Andrew April 9, 2012 at 11:30 am

Something cold when its hot and something hot when its cold. i would use it for whatever i happen to be drinking(or eating for that matter), that cup is meant to be all purpose all the time. i might even be tempted to break it in with a shave!

Jordan April 9, 2012 at 11:42 am

Would be great for a morning cup of coffee.

Robert G. Miller April 9, 2012 at 11:43 am

Strong black coffee from fresh ground beans in a copper percolator over an open fire. All while still in your wool lined bed roll!

Charlie P April 9, 2012 at 11:49 am

My favorite would have to be warm apple cider and bourbon.

Brent April 9, 2012 at 11:50 am

Coffee black and flavored with the sweat of my last victory.

Boko April 9, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Single-estate ceylon tea from Sri-Lanka. Hand picked and rolled by beautiful cinnamon-skinned women, slowly oxidized in the midday sun, and steeped until caramel golden brown.

John Palmer April 9, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Cold glass of water after a hot day working

Stephen T April 9, 2012 at 2:37 pm
