Is it safe to drink out of copper cups?
Copper reacts when it comes in contact with water and release copper oxide ions into water. This process, known as the oligodynamic effect, is why the Ayurvedic tradition of storing water in copper vessels continues until today. Excessive amounts of copper in the water does lead to copper poisoning.
According to this article, the amount of copper leached into water overnight is at 0.0475 parts per million(ppm). This is under the World Health Organization's recommendation of 2ppm, which is 2mg per liter.
Thus, it is safe to drink out of copper cups given that you purchase high quality copper cups from our copper drinkware collection. Rest assured, all of our copper drinkware, cups and mugs are hand hammered using pure copper from 100% recycled sources!
How do copper cups work?
As mentioned earlier, copper reacts with water to release copper oxide ions which are beneficial to your health.
When it comes to alcoholic drinks, holding your copper cups in your hand allows copper's conductivity to release the flavors and aromas of your favorite spirit.
That is why copper cups are not only great for drinking water, they also add a cooling effect to your favorite libation, as well as making your drink taste even better over time.
