It might be a by-product of our presence here in New York (with A Gentleman’s Read, which we guest-edit), but once more the humble mason jar has raised its head in the cocktail world. And once more is it a simply executed joy and pleasure to behold. And, yes, once more do we want one.
Having already raised more than ten times its original $5000 target on the US-based crowd-funding site, Kickstarter, the charming Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker is set to complete its funding run at the end of August and should have its first shakers out by September 2012.
So if you have $30 (or more, or less) to spare, we heartily recommend helping out the two chaps behind the project with a donation. And at that price you not only get to lend a craft-loving hand to the wider cocktail movement, but you also get your aforementioned paws on a shaker from the very first production run. Which, as far as we’re concerned, is a pretty easy equation.
