I gave this as a gift and HE LOVED IT! All of his mustached friends want one!


Ok, for the most part.

I like this product, but it doesn't fit that many of my glasses or mugs. I do have one glass I particularly like to use it with, but it is a little picky as to what it will work with.More > < Less

My brother takes great care of his mustache and beard. I couldn't resist adding this to his Christmas gift. He was definitely stoked when he saw it. I'm only giving it 4 stars because it got a great reaction, but I don't know how well it works yet. I'll provide a follow up review.More > < Less

The product seems very good! I say seems, because I bought it for a friend so I never actually used it. But I did notice when I put it on a pint glass, I needed to mold/bend the little arms to make it fit. But I did! Hope it works out!!More > < Less

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.
