The "Boston" shaker is considered to be the most professional type of shaker; legend has it that it was created towards the end of the 19th century by an unknown barman on board a transatlantic liner sailing between Boston and Europe. It consists of two parts which fit one itno the other (a large metal tumbler in 18/10 stainless steel rendered flexible by a special strain-hardening opetation and a tumbeler in very thick glass, in our case). The tumbler (preferably the one in steel) can also be used as a mixing glass (for cocktailes with dry liquor, while the shaker is used for dense liqouir) together wiht the whisk for bards. This project comes from an in-depth investigation into professional tools for bars and for wines carried out in the second half of the 70s with Alberto Gozzi of the Scuola Alberghiera, the training school for the hotel trade, in Stresa. He has since worked with us on many projects mainly for the hotel trade.
