The Copenhagen cocktail shaker


With its modern art deco design, Nuance Copenhagen shaker is straight out of the popular TV series 'Mad Men'.
Acknowledging that trendy design is incomplete without sublime functionality, design pair Karina Mencke and Marcus Vagnby involved bartender Humberto Saraiva Marques. Humberto recently opened the trendy and stylish cocktail bar 'Curfew' in the heart of Vesterbro in Copenhagen.


Humberto explains - The small and thoughtful features make this shaker a dream for both professionals and the home bar.

Low temperature is one of the secrets for making a good cocktail. The top and bottom of the Nuance Copenhagen Shaker are made of stainless steel, chilling drinks quickly. The shaker is designed with double walls, so I just have to shake the cocktail briefly and the drink cools perfectly. Double walls counteract with the inner silicone top and bottom, so the shaker becomes icy cold on the outside, and can used for longer periods of time.

While guests are enjoying a cocktail at 'Curfew', Humberto wants to disturb them as little as possible. The double walls reduce noise of ice cubes shaking against the steel.

The modern art deco design is also functional value, "the conspicuous ribbed design provides extra grip and the shaker opens easily with a twist - qualities that make it easy to work with" says Humberto Saraiva Marques.

Nuance Copenhagen Shaker contains the entire 0.7 liters and it allows making 2-3 cocktails at a time. The height is 25 cm and the diameter is 9 cm.
