Rugby union fans will be more than familiar with English side Exeter Chiefs sensational run of form recently, and Dartington Crystal was celebrating with them, creating a specially designed tankard for the clubâ€™s players, coaches and support staff.
In what was a memorable 2019/20 season for the Chiefs, Rob Baxterâ€™s side lifted not only the Heineken Champions Cup for the first time with victory over Racing 92, but followed it up by claiming a second Gallagher Premiership crown with victory over Wasps.
To mark the occasion, Dartington created a hand-made ‘Torrington’ crystal tankard, which has been personalised with the recipientâ€™s name, 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€
Club chairman and chief executive Tony Rowe, OBE, said: â€œAs a club we are very grateful for this wonderful gesture that Dartington Crystal have provided to us to mark the achievements of last season in winning both the Champions Cup and the Premiership.”
â€œDartington Crystal is renowned for its quality glassware, which is produced right here in Devon and which is sold within our own club shop. On behalf of the club and the playing side, I cannot thank enough for honouring our success in this way.â€
Dartington Crystal are currently 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.
