“Uisce beatha” is Gaelic for “water of life” and from where we get the word whiskey. This was the inspiration for this Butternut whiskey cup.
The carving on the handle represents both the water and fire elements and there unlikely unity in things like tea or whiskey. Butternut wood was chosen for its cathartic properties and is said to purify negative emotions especially those of fear and pity. This cup was made to invoke feelings of Courage and Joy much like the age old “Uisce Beatha”.
