Beautiful Bar Accessories

  1. Optic measures

It is absolutely essential to have an optic measure in your bar! They ensure consistency and minimal waste because they guarantee utterly precise measuring of drinks. Your stock will last longer if accuracy is put first, and this will then ultimately save you money. We have been the number one supplier of optic measures in the world for 30 years and we have three perfect 25ml optic measures, and one 125ml optic measure for you to choose from. Take a look at them here.

  1. Brass and chrome glass hangers

Aside from making sure that you have the best bar glassware in town, it is important to make sure that you have the perfect place to store it. Glassware should be stored out of the way but you still need to have easy access to it. We have the perfect solution for you—glass hangers! You can choose from our 250mm Brass Glass Hangers or our 250mm Chrome Glass Hangers. We also offer 610mm Brass Glass Hangers and 610mm Chrome Glass Hangers.

  1. Stand-up bottle opener and catcher

Most bars are all about efficiency and quick service. If you don’t like to fuss, our stand-up bottle opener and catcher is perfect for you! It makes removing all cork bottle caps super easy and it conveniently catches your corks after opening the bottle. You can use one of these anywhere—from outside patios to kitchens and bars. All you need to do is attach it to a flat surface and you’ll be good to go!

  1. Speed rail

In keeping with the theme of convenience, it’s also imperative to equip your bar with speed rails. Speed rails are a bartender’s dream—they’re designed to make your life easier because you can keep all your popular liquors together in one place so that you have ‘speedy’ and trouble-free access to them. They are ideal for people who like their bars to be organised. We have three different sizes available and you can check them out here.

  1. Bar Glassware

When it comes to drinks, it’s all about the glassware. Yes, it sounds strange, but the glass that you serve the drink in can make the difference between a good drink and a great drink. The right glass enhances the flavour of wine and beer. But it’s also important to serve cocktails in the correct glasses. If you’re serving Moscow Mules, you’ll need Moscow Mule Mugs. And, if you want to give your bar an unusual twist, why not invest in a silicone mould to make Ice Shot Glasses? It’s a unique and interesting way to entertain your guests.

Colourful Cocktail Accessories

  1. Wedger for limes and lemons

Another incredibly convenient bar accessory is our Wedger for lemons and limes. Bars rely on lemons for a number of extraordinary drinks and for aesthetic reasons. It’s nifty because you don’t have to waste time cutting lemon wedges by hand. The wedger allows you to make eight perfect lime or lemon wedges in no time at all—perfect for when you need to prepare Caipirinhas for lots of thirsty guests!

  1. Muddlers

Any bar that serves cocktails should have at least one muddler. Muddlers enhance the flavour of cocktails when bartenders use them to muddle fruits, herbs, and spices at the bottom of the cocktail glasses. If you’re going to be serving Mojitos, Caipirinhas, or Old Fashioneds, you definitely need to invest in a muddler. We have four beautiful muddlers on offer. Check them out here.

  1. Mexican Elbow Lemon Squeezer

This lemon squeezer makes bartenders’ lives so much less challenging. The Mexican Elbow Lemon Squeezer prevents your hands from getting covered in lemon juice, it makes squeezing all the juice out of a lemon much more hassle free, and it prevents the lemon pips from falling into drinks.

  1. Cocktail shakers

We definitely offer the very best when it comes to cocktail shakers! Depending on your taste, you can choose between our charming copper shakers or our stunning stainless steel shakers. You can also choose between Art Deco style shakers and French style shakers. You can browse the options here.

  1. Strainers

It’s crucial to have a strainer in your bar, especially if you’re serving cocktails. Strainers are specifically made to catch the ice from a mixed drink when it is being poured into its glass. It also conveniently catches any small bits of fruit that shouldn’t be included in the final cocktail. We have gorgeous Julep and Mezclar strainers, so take your pick!
