Look At This Muddler
It’s amazing the damage that can be done with an eight-inch piece of walnut. Pure muddle destruction.
The best muddler I’ve found is hand-turned and designed by the husband and wife team at AHeirloom. It's made of dark walnut, measures eight inches long and is capped on each end with corian.
The AHeirloom muddler is the perfect marriage between beautiful form and beastly function. The dark walnut of course bringing the beauty and the gnarly white corian teeth bringing the beastly function. It was designed to mimic an old school night stick and it does its job wonderfully.
I got mine at French Garmet Cleaners but you can find it online as well. There’s a paler maple version if you prefer. For $18 it’s very reasonably priced and I promise it will enhance your imbibing experience. Grab a tool that your children will enjoy using someday when they inherit it, or, once they’re old enough to make you a drink.
