Ben Nevis Whisky Oak Pen

Handturned Ben Nevis Whisky Oak pens by Pittswood pens UK

One for the Whisky Connoisseur!

As you have probably already guessed, the wood used to make these pens comes from the oak staves of genuine used Whisky barrels from the Ben Nevis distillery.

Some pens may inevitably have areas of staining and dark flecks (as can be seen in the above photo). As you can imagine the oak used for these pens would also have been used to hold Bourbon or Sherry before life as a whisky barrel. This all adds character, history and patination to the pens.

My Whisky pens can be finished with a durable coating or, if you’d prefer a more natural finish with a light waxed coating as the wood does have a subtle aroma of Whisky!  However, over time they will inevitably loose their lovely scent..

The Whisky wood pen is available in five pen styles (see examples below).  The main image above shows a pen made with Whisky oak wood (pen style shown is no longer available, please choose from the ones listed below.

Pens are supplied with a soft velvet drawstring pouch and a signed certificate to accompany the pen.
