I purchased the Whisker Dam for my son. I remember hating to kiss his dad when his mustache was soggy. I have fitted the dam to different cups and glasses. It has worked every time.More > < Less

Can't tell you how nice it is not to wipe off my mustache after every drink. Great idea for anyone with a nice stache.


Love it!

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.
