Dartington Crystal have created special celebratory tankards for the Exeter Chiefs.
To celebrate the double-winning exploits of the Exeter Chiefs, Dartington Crystal have created a special tankard for the clubâ€™s players, coaches and support staff.
In a memorable 2019/20 season for the Chiefs, the team took out the Heineken Champions Cup for the first time with victory over Racing 92, and followed it up by claiming a second Gallagher Premiership crown with victory over Wasps.
Each hand-made ‘Torrington’ crystal tankard, has been personalised with the recipientâ€™s name and features the Chiefs logo and engraved inscription as English and European champions.
Dartington Managing Director, Neil Hughes, said, â€œWe enjoy a very good relationship with Exeter Chiefs, so we were delighted to show our appreciation of their success in this way. What better way to ‘raise a glass’ to Exeter’s double-winning year than with a special tankard made in Devon.â€
Exeter Rugby Club Chairman and Chief Executive, Tony Rowe OBE, along with Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter OBE, and first team stars Stuart Hogg and Henry Slade held a socially-distanced presentation at the clubâ€™s Sandy Park Stadium.
Mr Rowe said, â€œAs a club we are very grateful for this wonderful gesture that Dartington Crystal have provided to mark the achievements of last season in winning both the Champions Cup and the Premiership. Dartington Crystal is renowned for its quality glassware, which is produced right here in Devon and is sold within our own club shop. On behalf of the club and the playing side, I cannot thank them enough for honouring our success in this way.â€
Dartington Crystal are working with the Exeter Chiefs retail team to soon offer this exclusive personalised tankard to supporters of the club to purchase online through the Trading Post.
