The Jotun were the race of giants of norse mythology, and they indeed had mighty appetites for meat and beer!
... and then they cowered in great fear when they heard of Australia's greatest chieftain - Bob of the Hawke

When one drink just isn’t enough, you always have your Horn of Jotunheim. Its massive size holds enough mead for a warrior such as yourself--and by that, you mean the entire bottle.
You enjoy a long drink from your horn, pleased that it never seems to empty. Or at the very least, you can’t seem to remember ever drinking it to the bottom. You can’t really be sure, since there are a few key lapses in your memory from your last few drinking sessions.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Horn of Jotunheim is a drinking vessel designed to hold a liter and a half of your favourite beverage. This genuine horn comes from the Indian water buffalo, and was chosen specifically for its dark colouring and massive size. The outside is polished to perfection, while the inside of the horn is treated for food consumption and longevity using a wax coating.
Enjoy cool and room temperature liquids in your drinking horn while remaining in character, hiding away the unsightly plastic bottles. Our drinking horns are a great addition to feasts and war meetings. Use it like any other cup (remember to drink with the point of the horn rotated to the left or right...you’ll thank us) and keep it from spilling by resting it in a leather frog on your belt or in the wrought iron horn stand that comes with this purchase. With the proper care, you can expect your Horn of Jotunheim to last many long years.

To clean, place in warm soapy water, and brush gently with a bottle brush. With use, the wax may begin to peel back from the wall naturally. It can easily be re-adhered by adding more wax. Purchase a block of pure bees wax and gently melt it onto the affected area, thumbing the area closed and sealed again.
Cracks in horn may be fixed with the application of dish-washer safe "ModPodge", available on request at your local Spotlight or craft store.
Do not use for hot beverages. Do not use for alcoholic beverages higher than 20% ABV. Do not place in boiling liquid or put boiling liquid inside horn. Do not drop. Consume contents responsibly.
