At Mortuus Bestia, we pride ourselves on creating handcrafted leather tankards that embody the timeless charm of bygone eras. Our exquisite creations are the result of a decade-long journey, ignited by a simple desire to create a remarkable gift for a cherished family member.

Designed and meticulously made in England, each Mortuus Bestia tankard tells a story. We combine the enduring appeal of leather with the rustic beauty of hammered copper, materials steeped in tradition and intimately connected to the art of celebration and conviviality.


Family lies at the heart of our craft. As a husband and wife team, we are privileged to operate from our cosy home workshop, overlooking the picturesque fields of Bourne, Lincolnshire. This setting allows us to cherish precious moments with our two delightful children, infusing our work with the warmth and love of family.

Crafted with passion and attention to detail, each Mortuus Bestia tankard features hand stitching and our distinctive braided leather base. The crowning touch lies in the ability to personalize your leather stein with embossed initials, words, dates, numbers, or common symbols. This customization transforms our tankards into cherished heirlooms, making them the perfect gift for birthdays, weddings, or any special occasion. Each tankard is presented in a custom message engraved gift box, adding an extra layer of sentimentality.
