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. The Boston Shaker 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.

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. The Boston Shaker 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 (1979) 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.

Alessi is a family owned Italian design company, founded in 1921. Giovanni Alessi, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. He was later joined by his son Carlo who was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s and early 1940s. In the mid 1940s Alessi began to work with outside designers. The current Alessi catalo is the result of a collaboration with over 500 designers from all over the world. A true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain. From this point of view, design intended to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential. --Alberto Alessi

Boston Shaker by Alessi is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from pricy but worth it I originally ordered the L 870/25 - Cocktail shaker but wasn't nearly as happy as I am with the Boston Shaker (which has a strainer you can order separately). A bit pricy but overall quality makes it a worthwhile purchase, especially for a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son was very happy with his Christmas gift! My son is a bartender in Manhatten and was pleasantly surprised his mother picked out something so classy for him. I haven't seen the Boston Shaker but am very happy with the long distance service I received from YLiving. Thanks for making it so easy!
