Cocktail Muddlers – WDWRK

USA Made


In the heat of summer, chances are you’re gonna want to make like Ernest Hemingway and craft yourself a refreshing mojito at some point or another (or another). Crucial to the development of a fine mojito is a well-muddled mint leaf and the WDWRK Flat Bottomed Cocktail Muddlers ($60) is a made-to-order instrument expertly constructed in founder Rob Laliberte’s shop in the Smoky Mountains of Knoxville, TN. After all, without a well-muddled mint, a mojito is just rum and soda water. Each muddler measures about 9-10 inches of locally-sourced wood, finished with a Blended Organic Beeswax. Built to last, this sturdy and simple piece will proudly accent fine wet bar for years and years. Now go ahead, pick up a muddler and make yourself one of these.
