Retail Partner Program (OTC RPP)

We are so excited to partner with your team to bring American- Made products to the masses.

Our commitment to quality, transparency, and a one-of-a-kind product experience extends to EVERYONE not just the person enjoying a unique beverage in one of our Hand-Crafted Cups.

We are a small company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a powerful mission. Our commitment to be local and sustainable starts with our stainless and ends with you!

When you do things the right way, it takes time, and it isn’t always easy, but it is worth it, and people take notice! We launched a KickStarter Campaign in conjunction with our initial product launch in December of 2017. We quickly rose to project #68 with over 56,000 projects on KickStarter! We fully funded and exceeded our goal in 10 days, and we have not looked back since!

The cup enhances the flavor profile of beverages when consumed from it.

It allows for the flavor to build, by muting the beginning notes, and expanding the flavorful aftertaste. This allows for the drinker to have a more rounded drinking experience. Try this simple taste test. Take out a 2-oz. shot glass and our Tiny Tin, pour a sip of your favorite beverage in each cup, and sample side-by-side… The difference will be remarkable, we guarantee it!

While every person’s pallet is unique, people often report things like, “smoother” “brighter” “more flavorful.” People notice notes they previously had never experienced before. Our favorite quote came while we were providing a taste test for a group of Airforce Fighter Pilots and one Captain remarked, “This [cup] turns 5 O’clock into Grey Goose!” These reactions are common but NEVER get old.

We are rooted in history.

The transcontinental railroad brought together more than just the east and west coasts of our great country. It brought together thousands of miners over campfires; swapping stories and sipping whiskey after a hard day’s work. They didn’t drink their whiskey out of fancy glasses, however. Glassware was a luxury that ended up breaking due to daily dynamite blasts while on the job so instead they turned to the materials on hand, tin.

The tin changed the taste of the whiskey for the miners, revealing hidden flavors and notes. This altered the way they consumed their whiskey forever. Now, a century later, we’re taking the original concept and design to a completely new level with our Original Tin Cup®. Our stainless steel cups are handmade in Michigan and designed to enhance the taste of whiskeys, bourbons and dark rum. With the Original Tin Cup® you can enjoy the full-bodied taste experience from a century ago. Finally, a history worth repeating.

We are local.

Our raw materials, manufacturing, engraving, packaging, and the team are all US Based. Much of what we do falls within a 35-mile radius of Grand Rapids, Michigan. EVEN THE CARDBOARD in our boxes is local! We truly are born in Grand Rapids, built for the world!
