Of course for any great beverage, you need the proper vessel. S’well’s teakwood mugs  are reminiscent of whiskey barrels. one of the reasons Kilbeggan® Original Irish Whiskey chose them for a partnership. They’re made of natural fibers and have a smooth, matte finish.

Yeti’s full lineup of stylish and rugged tumblers are perfect for whatever lies ahead on the open road. Our favorite is the Rambler Travel Mug, which at 30 oz. is perfect for hard-core caffeine aficionados. Thanks to its elevated handle and cupholder-friendly design, any hazard you encounter will not be a problem—whether you’re on your way to work or offroading it.
