History of Authentic Drinking Horns

History tells us that drinking horns have been around for millennia, dating back to 8th century BC. As per archaeological records, Vikings used them as drinking vessels.

Traditionally drinking horns were crafted from the horn of a bovid mammal. These include bison, African buffalo, water buffalo, antelopes, sheep, goats, muskoxen, and domestic cattle.

Over the years drinking horns have also been produced from other materials including plastic. However the authentic style, being the original, remains highly sought after.

Drinking horns made of horns, antlers, metal and glass, have been used by civilisations across the globe. Although they originated independently in different ancient cultures, they are typically connected with Scandinavians, Greece and Romans.

The middle ages saw drinking horns extend their reach to various parts of Europe. Here they gained wide popularity amongst noble households. This period also saw horn cups and full horns being used for ceremonies, as decorations and as gifts.

Called by the name of khantsi (Georgia) or keras (Greek), authentic drinking horns have been, and continue to be a truly priced possession.

Authentic Drinking Horns in Modern Times

The 19th and the early 20th century saw production of lavishly decorated horns. Drinking horns made of gold, ivory, or silver were indeed luxury items. Various drinking horns were also used for ritual drinking during this period.

Over time, drinking horns have evolved through generations. Today they are available in various sizes and shapes. From small to large they are also available in different materials like glass and plastic.

Modern day entertainment programs such as Vikings and Game of Thrones, present Vikings as an idol or heroic warrior. Since they are closely associated with drinking horns, this recent presence has lead to a fascination towards this antique drinking vessel.
