Professional Series Julep Strainer – Stainless Steel
- Stainless steel Professional Series Julep strainer
When it comes to bar tools, it doesn’t get more classic than the julep strainer! The julep strainer features a simple yet effective design that was first patented in the late 1800s. The strainer’s perforated design allowed it to sit in a glass, allowing liquid to flow through and holding the ice back in the glass. It’s believed that the julep strainer was also popular with cocktail fans who had large beards but still wanted to imbibe with dignity. Whatever the case, the julep strainer became wildly popular leading into the 20th century. While the julep strainer eventually became overshadowed by the Hawthorne strainer, which was seen by some as a more efficient tool, the julep strainer is still prized by top bartenders and cocktail connoisseurs around the world and can be an easy and classic look that can be added to your bar collection.
Our Professional Series Julep Strainer features a timeless design combined with solid construction. This strainer fits nicely into our mixing glasses and Boston shakers and is perfect for straining stirred, shaken, or muddled cocktails.
