The Perfect Mint Julep Cup

Our heavy, handmade pure copper Mint Julep Cups are inspired from the originals cups which were made in Kentucky during the 1800s. Each Cup carries the Prince of Scots Mark on the bottom of each cup to certify the quality. 

Prince of Scots adheres to the traditional design down to the last detail. Our cups are the same size and proportion as the originals, and even feature the same exquisite decorative beading. The cups are pure copper which keeps the drink ice cold with pure silver-plate. 

The Prince of Scots Mint Julep Cups make perfect mini-vase for centerpieces or party favors.
