Sixth said he liked the red cherry whiskey cup. He connected it with a special occasion. We all agreed that it was a cup that stood out. When you are among people and you hold it in your hand, you will certainly attract everyone’s attention, because it is the cup that does it, it is the one that attracts. ‘Every time I take it in my hands, I feel in the spotlight. It enchants me. The red wooden whiskey cup is like the red cardinal - extremely elegant and strikingly beautiful, it has confidence, grace and character that attract the attention of everyone around it.’
According to Sixth, the whiskey you drink from it should be warm, with a high percentage of alcohol, which will lead to a feeling of warmth in the mouth and throat.
The cup that rests in your palm, the feeling of its silky touch is truly incomparable.
Cherry is a hardwood known for its reddish-brown colour. The veins are arranged in parallel lines that run from the root to the top of the tree. Its elegance is impeccable. A refined choice for people with power and authority, those who love beautiful things in life and always strive to have the best. Cherry whiskey cups have a warm, inviting look and are often used for special occasions. The combination with gold or silver accents completes the aesthetics of the wood.
‘Which is your favourite one?’ we asked Third.
‘Black wenge with gold, definitely. For me, this is the mother of all cups,’ replied Third without any hesitation.
‘Every time I take it in my hand, I feel some kind of power enveloping my body, as if I'm standing on a pedestal, as if I'm God. Look at it.
On the one hand, it is subtle and gently touches my palm; on the other, it radiates bright and dazzling power. This combination of black and gold is superb.’
Fifth was listening attentively to Third's words and added. ‘Well said. I would only add the setting in which I imagine the black wenge cup: black marble and Porsche design with a clear focus on tech-inspired products, as well as minimalist design, where clean modern details and empty spaces create calm and interesting appeal…’
‘I associate it with jazz,’ First joined in, ‘when, after a long working day, I listen to Jimmy Sax and sip my favourite drink in my wenge cup. This helps me transport myself to the world of jazz and I have a full rest.’
Wenge is an evergreen tree that grows in tropical jungles, mainly Cameroon, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Its wood is extremely valuable. It is heavy, dense, hard and difficult to manipulate. The extraordinarily beautiful pattern and dark chocolate colour of the wood are wonderfully combined with the gilded surface of the copper parts of the whiskey cup.
Exotic, with a strong personality, the wenge whiskey cup attracts people from artistic circles and the fashion community, people with self-confidence, boldly expressing their personal styles and tastes.
