Alessi | Boston Shaker

Design by Ettore Sottsass, 1979.
By Alessi. This is considered to be the most professional type of shaker: Legend has it that it was created towards the end of the 19th century by an unknown barman on board a transatlantic liner sailing between Boston and Europe. It consists of two parts which fit one into the other: a large metal tumbler (here in 18/10 stainless steel rendered flexible by a special strain-hardening operation), and a tumbler in very thick glass. The steel tumbler can also be used as a mixing glass, together with the whisk for bars. This project comes from an in-depth investigation into professional tools for bars and for wines carried out in the second half of the 70's with Alberto Gozzi of the Scuola Alberghiera, the training school for the hotel trade, in Stresa. He has since worked together with Alessi on many projects mainly for the hotel trade.
