Our Shannon fountain pen is named after the largest river in Ireland; this fountain pen will impress any connoisseur of fountain pen writing. Like a river of ink, the pen effortlessly carries its user's thoughts and creativity from their consciousness to paper.

Resting on a writing desk, nestled in a notebook or sitting staunchly on a writing pad on a meeting or board room table, this Shannon fountain pen design and the detail in the wood we used make it unique, a gift that will impress its user and will be noticed by those who see it in use. The gift you gave will be remembered every time this fountain pen is held and its ink flows.

The wood in this pen comes from an Irish Whiskey oak barrel decommissioned from the world-famous Midleton Co., Cork distillery. We take a stave from the barrel and turn it into this beautiful pen. The colour of the oak has a lovely reddish hue, which comes from the whiskey distilled in it. Turning the pen on the lath generates heat, which liberates the most beautiful aroma of the whiskey as it matures; it is like holding a glass of Irish whiskey under your nose. The link to Irish whiskey from the wood we craft the pen from and its unique colour makes pens turned from this wood the perfect gift for the experienced Irish whiskey connoisseur.

The Shannon fountain pen is fitted with a German-manufactured bi-colour size six nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest of fountain pen users.

The fountain pen ink flows from an international standard-sized ink cartridge, readily available from all stationery shops worldwide. Open on this site also.

We also provide an ink pump with the pen, allowing bottled ink to be used in the pen. Fill the pump with your favourite bottled ink and insert it into the pen; you're ready to write.

Sustainability is high on everyone's agenda; by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill, you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfill every year.

Give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump; the only thing you don't use is the recycled empty glass ink bottle; how green is that?

We post our pens in our recyclable pen gift box wrapped in a corrugated card and placed in a biodegradable mailer bag; it's our way of greening what we do and minimising our environmental impact.

At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you.

  • Luxurious pen gift box
  • Detail card on the wood used in the pen

  • Ink pump and ink cartridges so the pen can be used on the receipt
