Winston Churchill is famous for many things – obviously his role as the Prime Minister of the UK during the second world war tops that list, but he is also known for his sharp witticisms, his tremendous jowls, and his love for a good long soak in the bath.
Cheviot is known mostly for the bathroom fixtures – including one tub named after a particularly famous British politician. The Winston tub is unapologetically mid-century in its design, yet cutting edge in terms of its technology and list of features. Cheviot cast-iron tubs are handmade in Europe, and glazed with a thick enamel coating featuring titanium. As a result, the tub’s finish is unparalleled in its easiness to clean, it’s lack of porosity, and its resistance to stains. Not only does this ultra-hard enamel keep stains at bay, but it prevents mould, mildew, and other microbial growth from getting ahead of your cleaning routine. Choosing a cast-iron tub also provides the thermal benefits of keeping your bath hotter for longer, which we can only assume would win over Sir Winston’s approval, and the availability of custom colour exterior finish puts a stylish (and personalized) touch on the experience.
Odds are pretty good that you won’t be appointed as the British Prime Minister on the eve of a century-defining war. But thanks to Cheviot, you can bathe like someone who once was – and that’s honestly about as close to that scenario as you’re going to want to be!
