mjBack in the day there were people that drank out of mason jars because, well, because that’s all they had. Somehow within the past couple of years it has become hip to drink out of mason jars on purpose – and it has led to a whole line of products to help you do just that. However, no product I have seen is better than The Holdster – “tough leather mason jar holders” made in Vermont.

About Holdster: “Our mission at Holdster is to help people enjoy their drinks; MORE. To offer a product that feels like it was made 100 years ago, was delivered to them by Daniel Day Lewis’ character in There Will Be Blood, and could be their great grandchild’s keepsake 100 years from now. 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.”

I like the Holdster Rivet: “Our Patented Holdster Rivet improves upon on the best drinking vessel available: the canning jar. Cheap, indestructible, heat-resistant, flavor neutral, healthy, and aesthetically sexy, mason jars are an icon of American made products. The Holdster slips onto a standard wide-mouth canning jar and acts as an insulating sleeve so you can use it for all of your beverage needs.” Simply put: We love Coffee, beer, tea, scotch….and just about all other drinks.
