Rusty Barrel Mayfair Cocktail Shaker Set.
The Rusty Barrel Mayfair Cocktail Shaker Set is a classic Manhattan style cocktail shaker with a mirrored finish. The shaker and utensils are made from 304 grade stainless steel and the muddler is made of wood.
The shaker is a 750ml sized shaker, it features a tight seal leakproof seal, and easily removes for easy pouring. Cleaning is nice and easy too. One end of the Measuring Jigger gives you a 15ml measure, the other end gives you both a 25ml and 45ml measure.
You’ll be pleased to know that I tested the leakproof design and can confirm it is indeed leak free. There’s nothing worse than a cocktail shaker leaking as you shake away. The included recipe booklet also contains 12 popular cocktails and instructions to make each one too.
