I ordered this for my son-in-law, as he has ample facial hair. He likes it.

Me son is very proud of his mustache and beard. I know he will love this to keep his 'stache clean. It's small enough to carry with him, and he'll have fun showing if off.More > < Less

I sent this to my son for his birthday and he was so thrilled he posted a photo on Facebook and went on and on about how great it is (and how great his mom is for finding it). I've been telling my mother for years how special The Grommet is, but now that my son is on board, I think you'll have several new customers among my family members and their friends!More > < Less

I purchased this as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves it! He used it the night I gave it to him during dinner at our local Irish pub and it worked as advertised and was very easy to use. My husband also liked the vintage looking box it came in and the fact that it fits in his shirt or pants pocket.
The whisker Dam definitely drew attention and there were several men asking how it worked & where I purchased it. We made sure to mention where we got it and encouraged them to check out your website.
Thank you for a fantastic product!

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.
