The word Culchie is a Hiberno-English term referring to the Irish worker building roads and canals in England during the last century. Many of these men were from the western town of Kiltimagh, pronounced Culchiemaa, in County Mayo, Ireland. This was later shortened to Culchie. Culchie Men loved their big, sturdy mugs of tea, and from that was born our Culchie Mug.
Kiltrea Bridge Pottery in Wexford, Ireland, is one of the few remaining potteries that use native Irish clay for all of their products. The clay recipe used to craft these handsome Irish Culchie Mugs has been a closely guarded secret for over 30 years. Hand thrown on a pottery wheel by artisans in the Kiltrea workshop, each Irish Culchie Mug is then hand-glazed individually. As a result, no two Culchie mugs are identical. The Culchie Mugs are fired to a very high temperature to give them strength and rich coloring. Dishwasher-safe and durable enough for everyday use, it holds 450ml of coffee or other beverages of choice. This mug is one of our most popular gift items, suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
