Every good tiki bar has their version of the classic rum barrel mug and Trader Sam’s is no different. Their version is overgrown with leaves and obscured under star fish and barnacles, as if it were lost at sea. Although this mug is wide, it can still be lifted using a single hand by the average person. It is also the only ceramic mug in the Trader Sam’s cannon to prominently display their logo (the pearl is made of plastic).
Although this mug would chronologically be the second in Trader Sam’s “Rum Barrel” series, this mug is unusual because it was marked as both “1st Edition” and “3rd Edition,” but not “2nd Edition”. There is no version of the mug marked as “2nd Edition”.
