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.

Coffee in the winter and beer in the summer.

J. Thorp April 9, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Dark black coffee on a frosty morning, or in the evening around the campfire — or yeah, homebrewed ale any time of the day or year!

Nathan April 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm

milk for some oreo dunkin’

Mat April 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Choffee. Pressed coffee with a tablespoon of cocoa added to the grounds as a caffeine kicker.

Andy April 9, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Hot Tea of all sorts!

Ryan April 9, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Corey A April 9, 2012 at 5:40 pm

As someone who makes their own alcohol, I would definitely be able to drink it in style with a mug like this. Perfect addition to the “den”!

Dave April 9, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Wouldn’t mind my morning coffee out of one of those.

J Falcon April 9, 2012 at 8:04 pm

coffee and a donut to dunk in it. Sweet!

Keegan April 9, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Coffee coffee coffee

DJM April 9, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Black coffee, dang it all. Hot, from a thermos, ideally by the side of the trout stream.
And a dark, heavy beer at night with a big head. No citrusy pisswater that you affix a fruit slice to and drink with a lisp. A copper mug would laugh at that and then spit it in your pansy face.

Les Johnson April 9, 2012 at 10:17 pm

I like to put tea in my mugs ;)

My favorite drink to put in a mug: double overhead ipa by Green Room Brewing. Jacksonville beach, FL

Bradford April 9, 2012 at 10:37 pm

There is nothing better than plain old ice water from a metal mug, condensation beading up and dripping down the sides while working outside in the heat.

Brian April 9, 2012 at 10:50 pm

Coffee. Black.

Phoenix Dave April 10, 2012 at 1:38 am

I love a well crafted, refreshing Moscow Mule cocktail in that mug.

Hot tea, cold beer

Justin April 10, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Coffee. Black.

KC Ellis April 10, 2012 at 2:19 pm

In winter, here in Phoenix it would have to be a whole leaf green tea from China. In the blazing summer an oolong, again from China, but “on the rocks”.

kurtis April 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm
