The boffins at Monkey Shoulder have just released The Claw, the latest in a series of state-of- the-art bar tools reinventing long-lost or just plain dull barware that collectively are creating a stir within the industry.
With rather unerring foresight, the Claw arrives just in time for Old Fashioned Week which kicks off on the 2nd November and is a global celebration of the world’s most popular whisky cocktail. It is also the ideal tool to help prepare and perfect the time-saving Monkey Shoulder Lazy Old Fashioned because in these days of instant gratification, who’s got 20 minutes waiting for a drink to be prepared?
The Claw follows hot on the heels of other ingenious bar devices, each one designed to bring joy to the heart of a busy bartender. The now iconic iSpoon was launched in 2014 to great acclaim and last year saw the release of the Konga Shaker, the irresistible rotating shaker that produces multiple cocktails.
Monkey Shoulder has scooped a gold medal consecutively for four years (2014 – 17) from the prestigious International Spirits Challenge (ISC). It was also voted the ‘top trending Scotch’ by The World’s Best 50 Bars as voted by bartenders in 2015, 16 and 17.
