The wood in this pen comes from an irish whiskey oak barrel that was decommissioned from the world-famous distillery in the town of midleton co. We take a stay from the barrel and turn it into this beautiful pen. The colour of the oak has a lovely reddish hue to it which comes from the whiskey distilled in it. Turning the pen on the lath generates heat which liberates the most wonderful aroma of the whiskey it held, we give with every whiskey pen a small sealed bag of sawdust from your pen so you share in that experience.
We install an all swiss-made rollerball refill in this pen, the swiss-made water-based ink in the refill delivers a smooth and free-flowing writing experience, it's like a printer connected directly to your consciousness. The rollerball refill is a standard international size and is available in any stationary store, online or on our website. Sustainability is high on everyone's agenda, by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill you help the environment by not contributing to the billions of plastic biros that go to landfill every year. Give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump and the only thing you don't use is the empty glass ink bottle that is recycled, how green is that.
We post our pens in our recyclable pen gift box wrapped in corrugated card and place in a biodegradable mailer bag, it's our way of greening what we do and minimising our impact on the environment. At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you, leave the text on the cart page. The pen is 145mm long and 58 grams in weight. Your pen gift is presented in our deluxe gifting package.
