Sweat has been a major issue within the club at Wingtip. With so many cocktails being crafted at the bar, often in very large Match Pewter Double Old Fashioned Glasses, regular old coasters were not always protecting our tables from condensation.
When we mentioned the issue to Moore & Giles, makers of all sorts of fine leather goods, they were kind enough to make us 100 leather coasters out of their 100% Italian vegetable tanned leather, called Virginia Natural. The coasters were handmade in Virginia.
The photo is post-Affogato. You might think we’d be annoyed with some spilled espresso on our brand new coasters, but that’s just patina in the making!
