"Purchased the Glass only as a spare to the Boston Shaker. As you are likely to break the glass part of any shaker of this type at sometime during its life, a spare is a must to ensure continued use of the shaker. These are made of good heavy duty glass (but you could still drop and break one) and as a spare can also be put to good use as a Mixing Glass so it does not have to sit unused!!"

"Great item. Buy two!"
Alistair Cain - Berkshire, 28th April
"Excellent product(s) for the money. Nice sturdy build, good seal between the two halves, easy to clean, just works."
Ben Turk - Surrey, 22nd January
"Glass is nice and heavy but the shaker looks and feels a bit cheap. The picture shows how the shaker has been made in two pieces and it's this construction that lets it down. The finish between the base and the sides isn't great."
Doug - London, 15th January
"Nothing much to say, aside from the fact that it does exactly what you need it to do - good seal for shaking, high quality metal and glass that doesn't mark and feels good in your hands. It's not expensive, and should last a lifetime. Just make sure that you check out a few YouTube videos to learn how to separate the glass from the tin - a simple technique gets them apart with minimal effort, unlike my first attempt that nearly had me throwing its contents across the room!"

Hervé - France, 17th July '12
"Great value for money and excellent quality!"
Rebecca Parker - Scotland, 28th May '12
"This was just like the one I used on my cocktail making course so was excited to try it out as soon as I'd bought all my ingredients! Pleased to say it was just as sturdy as the one used on training and a good price too. So much better than those all in one plastic things you get in the shops. These professional shakers are a must for any discerning cocktail enthusiast."
Katie Sayce - Milton Keynes, 18th March '12
"Well priced, item arrived very quickly and the order was correct. The cocktail shaker is easy and fun to use, my only complaint would be that as there is no pouring lip the drink runs down the shaker and drips onto the floor so it can be a bit messy or it could be me using it wrong after a few too many drinks, but we are very pleased with it!"
Sam Bradley - Staffordshire, 6th March '12
Drinkstuff says: Many thanks for your review Sam. Boston tins are commonly used with a cocktail strainer
; as well as filtering out any lumps, the strainer also helps restrict the amount pouring out of the tin which should help you pour more easily.
"I recommend this Shakers, nice product and great quality."
Miguel Correia - Portugal, 9th November '11
"Now I can pretend I am a professional. Easy to use, and good fit between the glass and the shaker."

"Broke my original Boston glass (it falling 4 feet off a counter I bear it no malice for smashing - but note; not shattering). So ordered a couple as back up. At this price it's ridiculous to order just one!
Great product, speedy delivery. All on all fantastic."
David Swain - Harrow, 13th August '11
Mariusz - Leeds, 20th July '11
"I bought this professional Boston cocktail shaker as a gift to a friend. Overall I am satisfied, the product is very good quality and has a great competitive pricing compared to others. Definitely worth it and recommendable."
V. Santos - United Kingdom, 3rd May '11
"Didn't use yet but I'm impressed, good material..."
Marco Jesus - Belgium, 28th April '11
"The shaker was a fantastic quality and perfectly fitted the purpose."
Ryan - Stone, 21st March '11
"Great shaker! We use a lot of these at work and they do the job just as they should :-)
Only issue for me is that they're not weighted! Which, if you don't flair doesn't make a difference!
I think you do need to stock a regular weighted shaker Drinkstuff!!"
Matt - Rochdale, UK, 7th July '10
Drinkstuff says: Many thanks for your review Matt. Our Professional Boston Cocktail Shaker tins feature a reinforced base which classes them as a weighted shaker.
"THE perfect shaker. Robust, watertight, easy to handle."

"A great piece of kit. Quick delivery aswell. Will defo order from here again."
Michael Ellison - Newcastle, 13th September '09
"Being keen to try new drinks, I have been into making cocktail for some time now. I have used a few different shakers, but this one without a doubt, is one of the best. The extra room means adding fruit to an already large mix is no problem. Also with the super fast delivery, I'll be using drinksuff again in the future. Thanks again."
Joe Taylor - East Yorkshire, 7th September '09
"This is the only cocktail shaker you'll ever need. Takes a bit of practice to get the tin and glass apart once you've finished shaking, but once you get the knack it's not a problem. If you're worried about ending up with more of your cocktail on the floor than in the shaker, then don't - once fitted together it forms a tight seal and I've experienced no leakage whatsoever. Don't forget to buy a Hawthorne Strainer
to go with it though, otherwise you'll be fishing lumps of ice out of your cocktail with a spoon!"
Stuart - Dartmouth, 20th August '09
"This order was fantastic. It's just what I had been looking for as a present for a friend of mine. It is of a very high quality and was well packaged when it was delivered. It was sent very quickly from ordering to it being delivered."
Mr David Bullen - North Shields, 19th April '09
"Solid and professional looking. This is the business."
Phil Poole - Streetly, 31st March '09
"Feels a lot more professional than using the 3-piece shaker, and the cost is well worth the value."
JayL - London, 10th January '09
"A fantastic cocktail shaker at a great price. I bought this to replace a metal topped "traditional" shaker that I used for making cocktails at various parties and social gatherings that leaked every time. Despite having no rubber seal, this Boston shaker doesn't spill a drop, looks professional and feels great in the hands. Great product - would recommend."
Simon Ordish - Benson, Wallingford, 5th January '09
"Excellent shaker, very sturdy."
Ruth Garrett - Scotland, 4th January '09
"Nicely weighted tin - practice practice practice. Ordered Friday delivered Monday"

Dom - Birmingham, 15th February '08
"Surprised at the quality of this given the price. Amazing value. Well made. Looks great. A generous size. Highly recommended."
Dan - Edinburgh, 11th February '08
"Just what the doctor ordered to be honest - no idea what i'd do without it now. Plus it came on time, when it said it would and was what i'd asked for. See Tesco, it's not that hard ;-)
Drinkstuff says: Dave, thank you for this and your five other product reviews! As a thank you, we have awarded you with 10 Drinkstuff credits, equivalent to £10 off your next order!"

"I wanted to add a professional touch to my cocktail making and this shaker certainly did that. Brilliant price and great quality."
Donna - S. Wales, 3rd September '07
"Great shaker, really good quality, already dropped it numerous times!
For would-be flairers - the tin isn't weighted, you can still flair with it, I just thought you ought to know.
Mine arrived very promptly (well, fairly promptly, considering there was a postal strike on!) and in perfect condition."
Louis - Edinburgh, 17th August '07
"Superb piece of kit, as good as the items we have in one of Edinburgh's premier cocktail bars.
Recommendations made without a doubt."
Anthony - Edinburgh, 14th July '07

Daniel U - Denmark, 16th March '07
"Want a great cocktail shaker? Look no futher. This is THE best shaker available - stylish, easy to clean, very sturdy, and it's the type every professional uses.
One tip - don't forget to pick up a cocktail strainer to go with it though."
Paul Brandon - Cheshire, 25th December '06
"Brilliant shaker - makes you feel like Tom Cruise from Cocktail!!!"
Georgina Woodcraft - Bromley, 20th December '06
"great. the glass bit and the metal bit fit together like ... a cocktail shaker"
ben green - uk, 11th September '06
"Recived it in excellent condition. Also think it could have been improved by offering a gift wrapping service for this item.
drinkstuff says: Unfortunately we can only gift-wrap items which are already in boxes or are angular-shaped. As this cocktail shaker fits into none of the above then it cannot be wrapped, sorry."
Laura - Sunderland, 2nd January '06
"This is basically the most essential item to have behind a bar, or even just in the kitchen. Either way...buy one NOW!"
Iain Cardno - Glasgow, 25th May '05
