We asked the makers of these pewter tags to engrave the names of different liquors (vodka, gin, scotch, whiskey, bourbon and brandy) for easy identification when it’s time to pour a drink for you or a friend. Add your own favorite spirit into the mix – or perhaps the name of a vineyard or distillery – with our blank pewter tag, which is available for engraving. All come with silver-plated chain.
Our pewter decanter tags are made in the traditional steel-producing city of Sheffield, England. Arthur Richard Wentworth, a pewtersmith, founded the company in 1949.
Hand wash with soap and hot water and dry with a soft cloth. Don't put in the dishwasher.? Pewter will keep its shine with minimal maintenance. It doesn't tarnish like silver, but if it does start to dull, rub it with a bit of standard metal polish using straight (not circular) line strokes.
A metal alloy, pewter has been around since the Bronze Age and preceded glass, porcelain and plastic as the household material of choice. These tags contain a minimum of 92% tin. Tin doesn't oxidize in air easily (it is often used as an anti-corrosive coating for other metals), and is favored for food and drink because of its low toxicity. Because of tin's malleability, the remaining 8% of pewter is a mix of hardening metals, mostly copper and antimony. (Lead was phased out of pewter many decades ago.)
Cast pewter tags with silver-plated chain engraved with the names of different liquors – vodka, gin, scotch, whiskey, bourbon, brandy. Also comes in a blank, engravable version. Each tag sold separately.
