Mauri Pöyliö is a well known maker of birch gnarl cups, known with the name “kuksa”. Kuksas have served Nordic people for thousands of years, and their properties are just as useful today as they have always been. The wood feels soft and cool on your lips, and is hygienic by nature.
Birch gnarl has got perfect characteristics for this use. The Pöyliö range contains both traditional kuksa cups for wilderness use and smaller versions, including “schnaps” kuksas. Nowadays some models are also available as coffee treated versions, which have a beautiful colour - a great gift idea!
