VIKING HORNS

What would represent a Viking better than drinking a beer from his horn? Literally nothing. Here we go, I'll tell you a bit about the history of horns and what they drank in general.

WHAT DID THE VIKINGS DRINK?

Wine? Beer? Coke? (I think not). According to archaeological findings, we can say that beer was by far the most consumed drink of our Viking friends. However, these same discoveries have taught us that they didn't just drink beer, they also drank wine. Well, in reality, there was not so much, because the production of wine was very expensive and we suppose that only the richest men could afford this kind of drink.

So, it was rather beer that the Vikings drank in their drinking horns. Well, I'm talking about drinking horns, but we'll see later that horns were not used all the time. Anyway, let's get back to the point. The majority of the beer consumed is called "Ale", compared to what we could imagine of these big guys, their beer was only very little alcoholic. Well, nothing prevented them from having several glasses.

In addition to beer and wine, the Vikings sometimes drank mead, if you have never heard of the making of this drink, we invite you to go and see our blogs on the Nordic gods. You will be surprised by this legend. However, to make mead, you needed honey, and it was expensive.

MUG OR HORN?

So yes, when we think of a Viking drinking, we often have this image where they drink from a horn, but in reality the horn was for special occasions. When it came to drinking with friends after a hard day's work, the Vikings usually drank from mugs. So if you prefer to stay in the traditional, we have what you need!

WHERE DID THESE HORNS COME FROM?

Indeed, how could the Vikings afford to buy horns at that time, without any logistic and production means? Well, like the rest of their objects, with the means at hand. For drinking horns, it was mostly ox horn.

Since we're really nice, we've prepared a recipe for you to make your own Viking horn, although you'll need to have a horn nearby:

  • Dip the cleaned horn in boiling water and leave it in the water for half an hour. This way you will get rid of the stench of the horn and rid it of bacteria.
  • Dissolve beeswax 100% pure. To do this, put the wax in a bowl of hot water.
  • Pour the wax into the horn until you cover the inside of the horn with a thick layer.
  • You can polish and touch up the outside of the horn as you wish.
  • Let the horn dry for at least 24 hours.
  • Make a stand where you can place the horn while you drink your beverage.
  • Pour the beer into the horn and enjoy it like a true Viking.

NOW, HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?

Well, that's improvisation, our horns are also all made from authentic ox horn. Of course, each piece is unique, and doesn't necessarily contain the same quantity, since it's real horn.

What I would advise you to do is to look at the material we provide with it, if you prefer a stand, a strap, a wooden box. Once it's done, let yourself be immersed in each of the stories of the horns, if you like this world, you're bound to like these stories.

I invite you to visit our collection of Viking mugs and cups to see other creations.

Go Skal my friend, it's the case to say it!
