We called our grills after the Latin name for the Roman god of fire and the patron of all smiths – Vulcanus. According to myths, Vulcanus, or Vulcan as we know him today, had his forge in the core of an active volcano. Going back to earlier Greek myths, he was a smith who forged the jewelry and weaponry for the gods on Mount Olympus. His wife was his muse, none other than Venus herself – worshipped in ancient Rome as the goddess of beauty. Inspired by her, Vulcanus imbued his artefacts with beauty, passion and sensuality.
