Meisterstück Shaker

Klaus St. Rainer owns and runs the internationally renowned ‘Goldende Bar’ in Munich, Germany. In 2008, he envisioned to design and develop his own version of a perfect set of bartender’s tools, inspired by the work, legacy and persona of legendary barkeeper Jerry Thomas. His creations and choice of materials distill his philosophy to creating the perfect cocktail into one unique set of products.

The Perfect Cocktail Shaker

The thermo-conductivity and velocity of flow of sterling silver help cool the cocktail to the desired temperature as it is being shaken. Gold has the remarkable chemical quality of being non-reactive - it will not affect anything that touches it. This is why the gold plating on the inside of the shaker allows for the rendition of the exact taste the barkeeper wanted to conceive when choosing his ingredients.

Meisterstück is German for masterpiece - in that spirit the Meisterstück shaker is the result of many painstaking months of trial and error. The seemingly random hammer-pattern needs to be arranged in a way that ensures a perfect seal around a Boston glass. The thickness of the walls of the cup is chosen to give the right amount of flexibility and just as importantly, create the perfect sound when shaking a cocktail with ice cubes.

For Klaus St. Rainer, manual work, love and family make the manufacturing process special, which demands a lot of handwork. It takes upwards of 2 days to complete one single Meisterstück shaker and create a perfect tool built to be passed on from master to apprentice and beyond.

Handmade to Order

The Meisterstück Shaker is a long-lasting product, made for extensive use, and at the same time distinct in terms of balance and weight. Unlike a glass that will be irreparably broken when dropped, a dented shaker can always be mended at the workshop by the creator himself. At the smith’s discretion, this is a complimentary service.

Every Shaker is made to order and bears the creator’s hallmarks as well as the initials of its future owner:

  • • Crown - certificate of authenticity of the material and craft
  • • Moon - the symbol for silver
  • • 925 - Sterling Silver. 925 parts of 1000 chemical parts are silver, 75 parts are copper
  • • KL - signature of the silversmith as a master craftsman and a combination of his initials and a personal emblem
  • • JR - signature of the Josef Rainer Shakermanufaktur and emblem as well as initials of Klaus’ deceased father
