So you must all know by now that I’m a bearded chap and as such often find myself in the awkward predicament that the aforementioned beard retails some liquid destined for my consumption. No more thanks to the WhiskerDam!
You’d be surprised how much of a pain in the ass it is when you take a sip of beer or whisky and your facial hair retains a proportion of what you’re trying to consumer.
Especially as, leaving it un-mopped up will ensure you gentle smell of the liquid you were just consuming for a while to come. Think of it like the bearded version of those ‘Got Milk’ adverts, or the Guinness Smile but lingering.
Thankfully this is now a thing of the past with a product hipsters everywhere have probably longed for. WhiskerDam is so simple in its construction that is typifies genius and really does do exactly what it says.
In their words: “Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a nontoxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection”
The box evoked memories of old school mouth organs and once you have finished admiring the brief but useful instructions you’re ready.
Clipping it onto the glass was simple enough, although I did drop it in on my first attempt. Excited? Much.
My first to final sip was beard-soak-free.
Here’s a couple of photos and if you’re a bearded chap like myself, it is well worth it… if only to stop your wife giving you grief about a wet beard now and then.
