History of The STORM™ Kettle
Before cheap flights and growth of good transport links, the western part of Ireland was particularly remote, and the winter nights must have seemed very long. In order to while away the evenings some of the Irish crofters used to craft a simple water boiler in copper using hand tools - for fisherman, itinerant workers and tourists. This proved to be highly effective and efficient.
John Grindlay, who with his wife owns and runs the Eydon Kettle Company, modified the design and implemented modern manufacturing techniques in the early 1970s. So the heritage and satisfaction with the STORM™ Kettle continues. All STORM™ Kettles are carefully made in the UK.
Nowadays they can be found in the Solomon Islands, helping remote islanders boil water to purify it, in remote parts of southern Africa, where dried cattle dung is used by the Zulus as fuel and in the Sahara Desert on expeditions.
