why this product

This shaker was inspired by the traditional aesthetic of copper stills (copper removes the unpleasant tasting sulfur-based compounds from alcohol) and the renewed interest in artisanal cocktail making. The copper manufacturer that crafts these shakers is nearly 200 years old, and prides itself on creating historically accurate wares. If cared for properly, the makers intend for these copper cocktail shakers to become family heirlooms.  The cup is lined with stainless steel so that you can shake up any concoction without worrying about the acidity eroding the copper. A stainless steel top easily slides on and off for swift pouring, ensuring your drink is still properly chilled when it reaches your glass.

use & care

Hand wash with warm soap and water. Never place in dishwasher. Copper is a metal that will not rust, as long as it is not exposed to acids. Over time and with regular use, the copper cup of the shaker will change in color and surface texture. This is not damage, but simply the copper molecules settling in and getting comfortable. A naturally occurring patina will develop to create a one-of-a-kind finish. If you prefer to restore the original copper sheen, polish the cup with a soft cloth and cleaning solution. Acid corrodes copper, the inside is lined with stainless steel, allowing you to shake up citrus-based beverages without worry of ruining your shaker. If you want to clean the inside of the steel-lined copper cup, rinse with warm water and mild soap, then dry thoroughly. Each shaker is individually made, so imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade vessel. Because copper is a soft metal, engraving can potentially compromise the structure or integrity of the product and is not recommended.

production & design

This metalworking company is careful to adhere to the same standards of materials and fabrication set almost 200 years ago at its founding. The cup and cap are created in a process called metal turning or metal spinning. Pieces of metal – in this case, copper – are spun and turned on a lathe at high speeds. A forming block pushes against the material as it spins to create symmetrical, round and tubular items. The cups are lined with stainless steel on the interior, so that you can mix your cocktails without worry of corrosion and damage.
