Why Copper Mugs?
As anyone who’s sipped a Moscow Mule can attest, these lime–ginger beer–vodka concoctions are at their peak when served ice cold. And even better in a copper mug. Not only does this metal keep the drinks chilly, but it also helps maintain the delicious fizziness of the ginger beer. And we don’t stop at mugs.
From wine tumblers to beer steins, straws to shakers, pitchers to ice buckets, Copper Mug Co. has crafted copper products to suit distinctive vibes and complement the style of any restaurant, bar, or home bar.

100% Pure Copper
We take our design seriously on all our top-notch copper drinkware and barware. We use only 100 percent pure copper, not copper-plated stainless steel the way other companies do. Our copper mug handles are welded, not riveted, so your mug won’t ever leak. And our food-grade lacquer prevents tarnishing, ensuring a coppery shine that will last.
We Control the Manufacturing Process
Quality matters, so we don’t skimp. Rather than outsourcing manufacturing, we craft our own Moscow Mule mugs, leaving out the middleman and ensuring quality from initial design to customization to delivery.
Engraving, Not Screen Printing
Other companies cut corners by screen-printing their mugs, which washes off with time and use. Our engraving lasts forever. Whether you’re ordering for a restaurant, bar, special event, wedding, or retail, we’ll ensure that our mugs exceed your expectations.
Free Engraving on Bulk Orders
What’s more, when you order in bulk (50+), we express our thanks by waiving extra fees on engraving. That’s right. Every bulk order of 50 or more units comes with FREE engraving of your logo or message. No hidden costs. No set-up fee. No engraving fee. Just pure copper Moscow Mule mugs at the best prices around.

Copper Mugs News
Copper, Copper, Everywhere…
The last decade and change has seen a copper resurgence. As of the mid-oughts, most bartenders and mixologists had barely heard of a Moscow Mule. Today, the distinctive drink notably served in a copper mug enjoys a popularity on par with staples like the mojito and Bloody Mary. In 2015, for example, the mule represented a full 7 percent of all cocktail orders.

A Brief History of Copper Mugs & The Moscow Mule
The origin story of the Moscow Mule is colorful and distinctly American. Or stories, plural—more than one version is floating around. Both involve a couple of buddies named John and Jack, a bar…and a woman.
Hollywood, California, 1941. It’s smack in the middle of the Golden Age of Hollywood, on the Sunset Strip in sunny Los Angeles. One day, in his friend Jack Morgan’s Hollywood bar, the Cock’n Bull, successful importer John G. Martin was in the mood to complain. He’d purchased a then-unknown vodka distillery (a little company called Smirnoff), and he was lamenting his inability to unload the vodka. It just wasn’t selling, he said.
Still smarting from Prohibition, Americans were dearly devoted to their beer and whiskey. Vodka? Not so much.
Morgan, it turned out, was having the same issue trying to sell his ginger beer. Over hours of drinks, the two came up with a strategy: combine their beverages and sell it as one cocktail.
But what about the distinctive Moscow Mule copper mug the cocktail would become famous for?
That’s where the woman comes in.
Depending on which story you’re telling, it’s either Morgan’s girlfriend, Osalene Schmitt, whose family owned a copper mine, or Sophie Berenzinski, a Russian woman who had traveled to America expressly to offload the two thousand copper mugs her father’s copper factory had manufactured and couldn’t sell.
Each story ends the same, inside the smoky Cock’n Bull pub. Three people, three different problems, one solution: the dawn of a new cocktail that would incorporate all three elements: ginger beer, vodka, and the copper mug.
And the Moscow Mule was born.
Not Just Moscow
Although the Moscow is the traditional mule, variations on the cocktail are endless. The base of the drink remains the same: lime and ginger beer. Creative bartenders substitute vodka with the spirit of their choice. From rum to tequila to gin to bourbon, a mule can be crafted to suit every taste.
