This three-piece cocktail shaker is the foundational tool for becoming a consummate bartender and cocktail slinger. The shaker has a mixing tin, a lid with a built-in strainer and a cap. Each piece of the shaker is carefully designed, tested and created by a Japanese company who has been manufacturing stainless steel barware since the 1960s. The three-piece shaker is essential for the “hard shake,” a precise but flamboyant shaking technique innovated by legendary Japanese bartender Kazuo Uyeda, who has been tending bar in Tokyo since 1966. According to devotees of this method, the hard shake imparts a smoother textural component to a cocktail than a traditional shake.

Use & Care

This cocktail shaker is dishwasher safe.

Production & Design

Yukiwa was established in 1946, and originally specialized in tobacco pipes. In the 1960s, their focus was shifted to producing stainless steel barware and cocktail accessories. Each item they make goes through a rigorous design and testing process. During manufacturing, skilled employees check each finished product to ensure that they function smoothly and properly. Yukiwa’s workshop and offices are headquartered in Niigata, a locale known for stainless steel production. Niigata becomes blanketed in 6 to 7 feet of snow every season. In the Japanese language, “yuki” means snow, while “wa” means harmony.
