Shake Your Cocktails 19th Century-Style | Partner Tip
Posted on Sep 15, 2014
The 19th century was a remarkable period of firsts—from the creation of the steam locomotive and telephone to the advent of the electric light bulb. But one very special invention from that century has escaped fame until today: the truly original Imperial Cocktail Shaker.
Inspired by a 19th century line drawing, the Imperial Shaker is the result of a partnership between spirits-industry veteran Jason Crawley and Tanqueray No. TEN®. Crawley’s passion and ingenuity brought the forgotten shaker into full-scale reality. The brass, silver and cast iron behemoth now stands at a staggering six feet tall and weighs over 280 pounds. Topped with four specially designed shakers modeled after Tanqueray No. TEN bottles, the Imperial Shaker honors an era of craftsmanship and engineering long since past.
What better way to showcase the exquisite flavor of Tanqueray No. TEN than with cocktails from such a historic machine?Distilled with whole citrus fruit instead of dried citrus peel, plus juniper, coriander and chamomile, Tanqueray No. TEN boasts a bright and balanced flavor that enhances just about any cocktail.
