While the original Brandy Stout has been sold, we are more than happy to indulge requests for this style of tamper. Please note that every tamper's grain will have its own unique characteristics, and thus each will be one of a kind. Still in love with this style? Contact us today!

The Brandy Stout Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper stands out for me because of the way the head of the handle fills the hand. It was that characteristic and the brandy pipe shape that helped name it. The broad stance also gives the Brandy Stout a little more weight than the average Cavendish Series tamper at 3.1 oz, not including the base. As with every Briar Espresso Tamper it is the grain and wood characteristics that truly set the Brandy Stout apart from the average wood tamper handle. The flame and bird’s eye grain that ornaments the Brandy Stout direct my eye toward the mysterious series of openings that twist their way along the neck. In another kind of wood, openings such as these deep sand spots would be signs of structural weakness. However these were not created as the wood split open, rather they were created as the briar burl grew and so the resulting wood is strong as well as uniquely ornamented. It is features like these that ensure you are not buying a manufactured product, but an individual complete with natural character. Let the Brandy Full accent your bar with the same handcrafted character as the espresso it helps create.
