If Soy had to have a Magnum Opus in its Barware series, this title would most certainly be given to the utmost amazing “Şakirt”, our Çanakkale shaker.
Note well, Soy lovers, this shaker is on the road to becoming an international bar icon, get yours before it becomes mainstream!
Like all Soy Shakers, the Şakirt has an outer body made of pure copper and silver, with the notable difference of sporting an elegant brass cap combined with a spin-fused stainless steel strainer.
The reason for this is the namesake of the Şakirt, the city and province of Çanakkale, divided like the copper and silver of the shaker between Europe and Asia by the mighty and gracious Strait of Dardanelles, where the invading armies were just as gracefully *capped* with prime Turkish brass, back in the Great War.
Entirely handmade by spinning and hammering massive 1.5mm Pure Copper -yet ensuring perfect vacuum- and plated in thick 50μ of pure silver on the inside and on both sides of the small module, this shaker has namely two VERY important advantages over its stainless steel counterparts:
1- Its solid construction from thick copper and silver ensure that the drink is cooled not only from the ice used to shake it but also from the metal walls of the shaker, and this in a matter of milliseconds after you start shaking, finishing your cocktail 2-3 times faster than any conventional shaker.
2- The sheer weight of the product, as it is manufactured from 1.5mm copper instead of 1mm steel, gives you ultimate control over your shaking, letting the container direct the move and not the liquid inside it.
3- Most important of all, the fact that the product has walls from Silver, makes any kind of Dry and Reverse-Dry Shaking processes obsolete, as Silver will react with the protein chains and foam-up the cocktail right away, whether it contains ice or not, and this, in a matter of mere seconds.
