We're Shawn Michael and Rachel Eva. We're artists, designers, and cocktail lovers that began making barware in 2014. You can read more about us and our company on our About page, and our design philosophy below:
We make with intention. We spend time designing one tool at a time, and work on it until we get it right.
We make high quality tools. Our cocktail spoons come with a lifetime guarantee. Our glassware is inspected by us, by hand. Shawn Michael turns our ebony muddlers on the lathe in our workshop. Call it artistic integrity, call it pride in craftsmanship, or call it just good manners - we make stuff to last.
We're not snobs. We are deeply involved with industry professionals and home cocktail enthusiasts alike. We do all the high-volume research we can with our tools, to ensure they stand up to the rigors of a commercial bar environment and meet the needs of our friends in the industry. At the same time, we're doing everything we can to make crafting cocktails at home as easy and enjoyable as possible. When people make cocktails, everyone wins.
We typically release new tools via crowdfunding platforms. We love collaborating with our customers, and always consider your input when finishing our designs. We also like the transparency of working directly with the people who buy our tools, and the conversations that inevitably develop. All of this helps us be better stewards our our time and financial resources during the product development stage.
Become a Backer: We use Kickstarter to launch most of our barware. We notify our email list first and offer some kind of great deal or special access, and Backers are always the first to receive new tools!
