Yukiwa 30cm Gold-Plated Teardrop Barspoon
These Yukiwa bar spoons are my favorite for a lot of reasons. The tight twist of the shaft feels great and makes them easy to control while stirring. The edges aren’t sharp but still provide a good grip. I’ve also noticed a lot of poorly designed bar spoons that have little to no curve at the spoon and I hate that; it’s like working with a flat paddle! The Yukiwa is set at a nice 30° angle. This angle helps when stirring to reduce agitation and keep air bubbles from forming in the liquid.
The teardrop at the top is perfectly sized and weighted to maintain a good balance; it isn’t top or bottom heavy at all. This makes it easier to maintain control and avoid the annoying clinking and clanking of the glass we all try to avoid! Lastly the spoon itself has nicely rounded edges, which may not seem like a big deal until you’ve seen some of the poorly stamped bar spoons that look like unfinished sheet metal.
A good stir is an art form. It takes lots of practice! A good barspoon is a pleasure to use, makes learning easier, and improves an already great stir.
Did I mention that these look fantastic? 😄
This is the gold plated version so remember it’s not dishwasher safe! In my experience once or twice by accident won’t ruin them but you should do your best to avoid it.

The Mr. Slim Jigger by Sano Works in Japan is a poplular design and with good reason. The durable mirror finished exterior and gold band make this both classy and functional. On the interior of this 1oz / 2oz jigger there is a marking for 1.5 oz. It’s light, flips easily, and is comfortable to hold.
With its strong lines and sharp angles it reminds me of a smartly dressed gentleman but even though it’s a bit masculine I use it often!
These seamless glass bitters bottles look great behind the bar or on the shelf at home. They’re cut with a beautiful Yarai pattern, look stunning, and add a heavy dash of sophistication to your kit. If you’re a huge Harry Potter fan like I am they’ll make you feel like you’re mixing up a real magic potion. Who knows, maybe you are? 😉
Beyond being my favorite looking bitters bottle it’s also quite functional. Being 85ml it’s perfect for often used bitters like Angostura or Peychaud's. Because of the long tapered stem it’s comfortable to hold between your fingers in a variety of positions and flip for a dash.
The dasher top uses a cork seal and unlike some others that I’ve used the cork doesn’t come off after being refilled a certain number of times.

A few tips on a consistent dash:
Apply consistent force when dashing. Don’t be too gentle or forceful.
Don’t let the bottle get almost empty.
A common mistake is to flip the bottle over quickly as part of your first dash. Don’t do this! It traps an air bubble and makes your first dash really small. Instead, tilt it over a bit slower making sure there is no trapped air. Don’t worry, the bottle won’t leak but it will ensure your first dash is the same as your subsequent ones.

These look just as good in person as they do in the pictures! These Yukiwa Dance jiggers stand out as a true work of art and craftsmanship. They’re well balanced and flip easily, polish to a mirror finish, and feel as luxurious in hand as they look. They measure 1oz and 1.5oz but lack any interior markings which I think is due to their unique shape. Lets be honest though; you aren’t buying this jigger because you need your hand held on a 3/4oz pour! They’re impressive and beautiful. I get more comments about this jigger than just about any other piece of equipment or asset I have! 😏
Absolutely stunning design; I get tons of comments
This 550ml mixing glass from M-TAKA is hands down the best bang for your buck! It’s hand blown, completely seamless, and it’s side walls aren’t needlessly thick. Nothing screams cheap like a mixing glass with ugly seams or walls literally as thick as The Wall in Game of Thrones!
This version has a beautiful and unique striped pattern deeply etched into the glass. It’s rare and looks gorgeous when filled. Sometimes it’s nice to just be different; especially when it looks this good! But what I think what I like best about this mixing glass is that the bottom isn’t completely flat. The interior edge meets the base with a bevel and this curved transition makes stirring with a well angled barspoon fluid and effortless. The base is also nice and thick making it stable and hard to knock over. Take a look at this diagram to see what I mean.
Like all blown glassware there might be a small bubble or imperfection. It’s perfectly normal!
