Shaker & Spoon was founded in 2015 in Brooklyn by two designers and an overfilled liquor cabinet. We got tired of buying apricot brandy and cream sherry and not using them again, of needing hard-to-find ingredients at 10 p.m., of trying that complicated cocktail recipe only to be disappointed once it didn’t turn out. Now, with our monthly cocktail club, you just pick up the bottle and we take care of the rest. So next time you want to impress your date, party with friends, or relax with Netflix while drinking the perfect old fashioned, we’ll be there to give you the knowledge and confidence to go beyond pouring a glass of wine or opening a beer. With our help, you’ll mix that drink perfectly—and always be the tastemaker in your circle.
Russell Davis—our CCO (Chief Cocktail Officer) who oversees monthly box and recipe curation—has been a mixologist for almost a decade, during which he's worked in almost every type of bar imaginable. Known for his rebelliousness, southern charm, and renegade business sense, Russell possesses a signature bartending style that combines proper mixology and craft bartending techniques with speed, knowledge, and showmanship. He was named Nightclub & Bar's 2012 Bartender of the Year and was the most frequent mixologist guest on Spike TV's Bar Rescue. His consulting company, Unlimited Liabilities, has designed the first cocktail glass for space, invented spirits and methods of distillation, and branded bars and bar programs, among other ventures. Academia, a downtown Austin bar focusing on curated cocktails and small bites, is their latest project.
