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
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!
The best thing about this Julep strainer from Yukiwa is that it's one piece. It's embarrassing when you're behind the bar and the inexpensive spot welded julep strainer you picked up falls apart, right? Don't let that happen to you! It fits very nicely on the mixing glasses we sell and like all things Yukiwa looks fantastic. It's made of Japanese 18/8 stainless steel and is manufactured in Niigata, Japan.This version isn't plated like the gold version. It's 18/8 stainless steel so it’s fine in your standard high temperature dishwasher. Given the choice I still hand wash my tools but this one will stand the test of time.
Made by Miracle Mile Bitters Co. these Yuzu bitters combine prominent notes of citrus peel with a bit of faint lemon, grapefruit, and thyme. They’re lemony and herbaceous but not spicy — nicely sweet and not too bitter.Yuzu will benefit any cocktail with citrus flavors. I like it in a French 75, Tom Collins, and Southside. A drop in your gin martini at home will make a world of difference. Don’t forget to garnish with a lemon peel!Yuzu is a variety of citrus that originated in central China and Tibet. During the Tang Dynasty it was introduced to Japan and Korea. It’s flavor is tart and closely resembles that of grapefruit with overtones of mandarin orange. It’s pretty interesting for a citrus variety because it grows in colder regions. It can even handle a small frost!
Shaker tins are a dime a dozen, right? They give them away for free at just about every promotional event and some bars even provide them for their staff. So why would you need to pay $70 for a set of what is essentially metal cups?Well let me tell you! 😊 Yes, these are made in Japan, they have a beautiful finish, a stylish bit of detail work, and are made of high quality 18/8 Japanese stainless steel. But what I love about these is that they’re are truly workhorses. They aren’t weighted but they are very well balanced. For those of you that like to channel a bit of the late Sasha Petraske they’re perfect for a double shake that starts with smashing your tins together. Thats because there’s no spot welded weight to eventually come loose.These are also the only tins I’ve ever used that have never gotten stuck on me. They seal perfectly and release well every time. Why? The smaller tin is designed so that the taper to the base starts further down. Check out the diagram.
Beautiful finish with stylish details

Are very resistant to getting stuck together; I’ve never done it yet
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? 😄
