Thirst Extinguisher cocktail shaker stands tall and stately, offering a reminder of how to make the classics… just rotate the base and read the mix needed for a dry Martini… a Between the Sheets, a Clover Club.
our shakers are made from originals acquired at London’s finest art auctions; all twenties and thirties style novelty shakers. Originals were rare in the 30’s; they cost substantial money then.

Decorative designs that differed from the classic shaker shape were in fashion, to make them less easily recognized by the police. All this was during the 1920’s, when the Congress voted in the Prohibition and the US went “dry”. Illegal bars called speakeasies came in many varieties. All shakers are made of heavily silver-plated brass and are food safety approved.
