Cool gift idea, but...

1/3/2018 by Laura

I gave this to a loved one as a Christmas stocking stuffer. He thought it was really cool until he tried using it. Unfortunately, the guard will not cling to a glass as shown -- at least not very well. When he tries to use it, the beverage just ends up pouring out down his beard as the guard slips off as he tries to drink with it on. Frustrating!More > < Less

Was a gift- was told it really didn’t keep the mustache dry


Dribble glass

My husband has a pretty full mustache which turns into a sponge. I thought he would be a perfect candidate for this product and I would not have to experience mystery moisture every time I kiss him. Alas it did not work as described. He said it created a dribble glass effect. Bummed.More > < Less


Difficult to fit on glass

Not easy to fit on a glass. We're probably just doing it wrong!!


High Hopes!..

Great concept! However, it is messier than just drinking from a glass without the guard. Very disappointed...

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.
