CLINQ is the first brand that we have introduced to Empire Copper and is currently available only on pre-order. We are hoping that CLINQ arrives in our warehouse this Friday, August 20th 2021.

CLINQ was founded on the Central Coast of NSW by Lucy who is an engineer and designer. Lucy is quite literally is a rock scientist by 'trade' (how cool is that!?) but also has a love for wine, social outings and shiny things. 

As a self proclaimed perfectionist and with a mission to bring to market sophisticated and luxurious copper barware, we knew Lucy's brand CLINQ was for us. We have begun just selling their stemless champagne flutes and wine/cocktail glasses however in time, hope to stock more of their range. 


Firstly, their core VALUES:

Unique products – Almost all of our products are designed in-house, in Australia. This means they are unique to our brand and you won’t find them elsewhere.
Detail obsessed – We are attention-to-detail fanatics – from our product design to our packaging.
Beautiful and useful – We endeavour to deliver beautiful and practical products.
Passionate – We’re passionate about Australian design and trends
Customer orientated – We value every one of our customers and we go above and beyond for them.
Quirky – We stand out from the rest. We are all about original flare. 
Authentic – We are an Australian brand, who is down to earth and easy to deal with.
Integrity – We believe in doing the right thing, from our quality control to our customer service. 

CLINQ’s Copper Collection is copper plated inside and out.
It is then coated with a clear, food-safe and durable coating that keeps your glassware gleaming and your drink tasting how it should.

CLINQ's copper glassware is not dishwasher friendly and should be hand-washed to maintain the shine and quality. Avoid abrasive cloths, scourers and brushes whilst cleaning as they could scratch the surface and remove the protective clear coat. Polish once dry with a microfibre cloth to make them dazzle. Do not leave liquid sitting in glassware for extended periods
(i.e. multiple hours or overnight), and ensure glassware is dried thoroughly after use. Copper is a reactive material, and if not cared for, can begin to oxidize (patinate) which in the eyes of the Empire Fam, isn't a bad thing... 

Each set comes with a product care card and CLINQ microfibre cloth.

So you may be asking, why not just make it ourselves? 
Because quite simply, we couldn't make copper barware look this good.

If you have any questions about CLINQ please reach out to us on all the usual channels or fill out this contact form and we will be in touch within 48 hours.
