If you enjoy your favourite tipple with friends on a shoot, you might appreciate a personlised engraving on your shoot cup.

With the joy of present buying all year round and Christmas on the horizon, knowing how to get your shoot cup engraved is handy. A personalised shoot cup makes the ideal present for the keen hunter, rider or polo enthusiast.

It is likely that the night before your shoot, you will have raced through most of the alcohol and need a few drinks to keep you standing.  Nothing seals the sporting bond better than a good tipple with friends, preferably with something homemade inside. Sloe gin is a favourite drink to take shooting at this time of year so try making your own homemade damson gin if you have the time. If you are looking for a new hip flask, take a look at The Field’s recommended best hip flasks. 

After your shoot it is important to clean your shoot cups and hip flasks to prevent a tainted brew, The Field has a few tips on how best to clean your hip flask.

QUERY:  I would like to have a simple family crest engraved on some stainless steel cups that we use on shoot days. However, I am having trouble finding someone who can engrave anything other than script. Can you help please? SP, Gloucestershire



A Brunel Engraving can do the job but doesn’t recommend engraving on a satin finish; however, mirror-polished stainless steel is suitable. There is a charge for converting the crest into an engravable format. Engraving costs will depend on item and size. Our engraving craftsmen are trained to the highest standards in the UK using the very latest computer controlled engraving machines, including laser and glass, as well as sublimation and anodic print.
