Simply put: We love Coffee, beer, tea, scotch....and just about all other drinks. Canning jars are the best drinking vessels we've found for enjoying these drinks but they need some insulation to protect your hands from heat and cold. So? Put leather on it. It looks great, it smells great, it feels good in your hand, and it lasts a long, long time.
We're headquartered in Burlington, VT. Holdster started in our living room at the (not so famous) Intervale Hotel (unofficial name for our home) in January 2012. Our products are manufactured with pride in the USA.
Don’t water it down, add any B.S, or try to consume it quickly. Instead, enjoy everything like a scotch served neat: unadulterated, pure, meant to be sipped slowly one drop at a time.
