Essential glasses for Essential AF Employees

I first learned about Ben Shot through American Crate monthly shipments of products made in the USA. I sent the glass with the bullet to my son who is a in the US I work at a small rural Critical Access Hospital and purchased the Essential AF glasses as gifts for coworkers and they have all loved them. I love that they are made in the USA. They arrived quicker then I expected. I have also purchased other glasses as gifts and even inspired one of my coworkers to purchase glasses for her son-in-law who is an Officer in the US Army.

Great product

This is a good quality product. I would purchase again. I bought a case last year and an additional case this year. I work at a hospital and gave them to the Respiratory Care staff who were working long hours during the pandemic.

Essential AF glasses

Bought the 10 pack for my Firefighter son and daughter-in-law. Both are Paramedics and work with a great group of firefighters, paramedics, and nurses. I asked them to give them out to who ever they wanted... Great looking glasses with a good meaning to them.

Great product!

I've given 'Essential' and 'Essential AF' glasses to colleagues and my staff (I work in healthcare) twice in the last 20 months. These are always a hit. As a side benefit, it's great to be able to support a small US manufacturer.

Nurses are essential AF

We bought the “essential AF” wine glasses for my wife’s fantastic nursing team. Quality through out on the glassware and loved by the team. Respect for your work!
