Japanese bartenders/mixologists have been in the spotlight for the past few years, gaining recognition in world cocktail championships for their presentation, precision, professionalism, attention to detail, shaking techniques, and of course, high quality bar tools. Just as Japanese knives have become the preferred choice among many chefs and cooks around the world, Japanese bar tools have started to become the top choice for bartenders and mixologists worldwide.
Yukiwa (manufactured by Sampo Sangyo Co.,Ltd) is a leading brand for stainless steel tableware, kitchen utensils, banquetware and service wagons in Japan, and their bar tools are highly regarded by the bar industry for the quality as well as ergonomic designs.
Cobbler shakers are the shakers of choice for bartenders and mixologists who aspire to perfect the Hard Shake, a technique invented by world renowned Kazuo Ueda, who owns a bar called Tender in Ginza, Tokyo. According to him, using this technique allows you to aerate the drink (reducing the harshness of the alcohol and resulting in a more pleasant mouth feel) and chip the ice in a way that will not dilute the cocktail. This copper-plated three piece set from Yukiwa is manufactured with precision and each part snugly fits with each other to offer stability and comfort in your hands.
