Made by the famous Salisbury company of Maryland, we're told this cup was inspired by the maritime heritage of the "Old Line State"... we don't know, but it's a fine cup by any standards, and would be very special with any rum-based cocktail as well as (obviously!) the traditional Mint Julep.
Although this cup is from Maryland, we promise not to tell if you make your Julep from something other than Rye. But you really shouldn't.
Like all our Julep cups this is made from solid lead-free pewter, so it won't rust like stainless steel can (especially in the seams) and it won't tarnish like silver.
