In case you like your cocktails professionally stirred versus shaken then you will love William Grant & Sons-owned blended Scotch whisky brand Monkey Shoulder’s recreation of the 1930s Konga Shaker. The recreation will be a limited edition piece to be used in select bars across the UK
The Konga Shaker, features rotating handles that allow cocktails to made using a rolling rather than shaking motion and due to mainstream shakers fell out of favor of bartenders.
Monkey Shoulder’s latest version of the Konga Shaker retains a stainless steel cylinder and red plastic handles, with the modern addition of sieve, or strainer.
The Konga Shaker is larger than a typical cocktail shaker and allows bartenders to create between three and four cocktails at one time, to which we say: More drink less wait time? Yes Please!
Just 250 Konga Shakers have been created and will be distributed to bars across the country, along with adapted cocktail recipes to try it out with.
The product follows the launch of Monkey Shoulder’s iSpoon in 2014 – an extendable bar spoon
