‘Shot glass’ has taken on a new, more literal meaning thanks to a father son duo in rural Wisconsin. Their company, BenShot, specializes in ‘bulletproof’ shot glasses and tumblers, both of which are embedded with an actual bullet.
Each glass is unique, made to order, and handcrafted in their glass workshop in Wisconsin, which is on the grounds of a repurposed furniture factory owned by Thomas Edison, according to BenShot’s website. “The vintage workspace and northwoods surroundings provide a unique glass working area resulting in truly extraordinary glassware by their resident glassworker Bulletproof Bruce,” reads the brand’s story page.
The ‘Bulletproof’ Shot Glass is being sold for $15, while the ‘Bulletproof’ Tumbler costs $23. The Bulletproof Shot Glass is a 1.5-ounce shot glass with an embedded bullet and the Bulletproof Tumbler is a 7.5-ounce rocks glass embedded with a 0.45 caliber bullet.
