EXPECT NEXT YEAR MUCH HIGHER PRICE FOR THE MUGS: THE REASON IS 
DUNOON 12.5% Energy surcharge on invoices - A statement from Dunoon Directors

Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for your recent order. We have seen strong demand for our mugs in 2022 and our factory has been kept very busy. Our design team has worked hard on our 2023 launch and we are now taking orders for Spring 2023. Unfortunately, just like many businesses across the world, we are now facing unprecedented increases in gas and electricity charges. Due to the nature of the product we manufacture, Dunoon is a particularly high-energy user with a number of gas and electric kilns on site. Our gas price has risen by 750%, whilst electricity has risen by 450%. Both increases are after taking into account the Government assistance from the Energy Bill Relief Scheme. We use gas to fire our mugs when they are in the clay stage to a temperature of 1200°C to give the mugs their strength and translucency. We then use electric kilns to fire on the bright white glaze at 1080°C, before the mugs go through another kiln at 830°C, to develop the lovely colours and patterns applied by our highly skilled decorators. Although the ceramics industry is actively investigating energy alternatives, such as firing kilns with Hydrogen instead of Natural Gas, this technology is still a long way off and in early stages of development. At Dunoon there are a number of things we have actively done to keep costs down such as installing LED lighting across the whole site, improving insulation on burners and maintaining all equipment to be as energy efficient as possible Going into the next 12 months there is a huge amount of uncertainty regarding energy prices, in what is continuing to be an extremely volatile market. Although we anticipated energy increases, it is now clear that Dunoon cannot continue to be a viable business under current circumstances. After lengthy discussions, we have made the reluctant decision to apply an energy surcharge of 12.5% onto all orders with a despatch date after 1st November 2022. This surcharge will appear at the bottom of all invoices as a separate line, which we hope will be a temporary measure. We will endeavor to produce your orders with the same care and attention to detail as ever and to continue to produce the finest quality bone china mugs in the world. We sincerely hope the energy situation will improve during 2023 and thank you for your support during this very challenging time. Please contact your sales representative if you wish to discuss your order further. Kind regards A.W Smith P.T Smith Production Director Sales Director

 The Making of Dunoon mugs

A new mug from Dunoon is produced every 2.5 seconds of the working day, always to the most exacting standards. The highest quality china clay is used, chosen for its translucency, whiteness, and strength. The mugs are made using the slip cast process, which results in very fine and light yet strong china. Every mug produced by Dunoon undergoes seventeen different processes, (excluding the design and print elements), and each person who works on the production line takes personal pride in their aspect of the manufacture. The same man has been mixing the slip that is poured into the molds for thirty years! The mug handles are fired separately and are always attached by hand, as are the lithographic transfer decorations. Rigorous quality control takes place three times during the process: after the initial biscuit firing after the glaze has been fired, and after the litho transfer has been fired. At each of these stages, any flaws found will be ground out and polished. Due to being fired three times, the final mug will be 12.5% smaller than its starting size.
