Reality lives up to theory

I purchased this whisker dam for my 38 year old, red-bearded (nicely trimmed) son. It's compact, innovative and will travel easily as it's hauled to Denmark. I found it to be simple, yet well engineered and well made. I could not resist trying it out, sans beard, It worked exactly as described. Time will tell what the child thinks about this, as it will be thoroughly tested on the 50+ micro-brews at Mikkeller and the brews at Copenhagen Street Food, two of their favorite hang-outs.More > < Less

My brother in law loves it. I bought 1 for his house and 1 for mine. The first thing he does when they arrive for a visit is pour himself a drink with the Dam.More > < Less

Was given to an old friend for his birthday and was very positively accepted. He found the guard a "perfect fit" for his glassware.

About Whisker Dam

Drink and Dry

The Whisker Dam is a copper mustache guard that lets you drink like a gentleman. It fits neatly over a pint glass, highball, or mug, keeping your facial hair dry as you drink.

When brothers Ellery and Jeff Mulock bet on who could grow a better mustache, Ellery won and decided to keep his handlebar. That upper lip fixture eventually earned him an unusual inheritance: a ceramic mug with a built-in mustache protector.

Turns out these kinds of guards were quite popular—along with facial hair—centuries ago. With mustaches again on the rise, Ellery and Jeff decided a revival was in order.

Made in the USA from 100% copper, the Mulocks' version honors its origins with embossed lettering and a weathered patina. They hand stamp, finish, and package every Whisker Dam from their San Diego shop. Even though it’s all copper, a non-toxic coating keeps any metallic taste out of your mouth.

With this ‘stache saver, you’ll have an always-tidy upper lip.
