Smooth black clay cups, handmade in Oaxaca, México, intended for sipping mezcal or tequila (or the spirit of your choice). Your mezcal will taste delicious in these earthy, black clay mini vessels. Featuring a wide mouth, ideal for allowing the spirit to open and breathe. May also be used to hold salts and serve small bites.
Drinking mezcal from wide-mouthed tiny cups in Mexico embodies a tradition that dates back centuries, fostering a communal atmosphere where people share and savor the complex flavors of this artisanal spirit, promoting a sense of connection and appreciation for Mexico's rich heritage. The little cups enhance the sensory experience, allowing drinkers to engage intimately with the distinct characteristics of each mezcal.
Our pieces are produced in San Bartolo Coyotepec, a community in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico with a long history of producing barro negro pottery. All clay is locally sourced from the hills of the region and shaped by hand without the use of pottery wheels. The black clay, known as "barro negro," is a unique and revered material prized for its distinctive sheen and ability to be intricately shaped, creating exquisite pottery that reflects the region's rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship.
Simple yet elegant, these classic little cups are the perfect addition to any home bar. An excellent gift when paired with a bottle of mezcal.
Dishwasher safe, however washing by hand is recommended. Rinse with water prior to first use.
