American or "Boston" shaker in 18/10 stainless steel
Design Ettore Sottsass
The 5050 shaker, now a barman’s classic, was designed in 1979 by Ettore Sottsass and has therefore been in the Alessi catalogue for more than 40 years. We decided to modify the upper part of the so-called “Large glass”, which will no longer be made of glass but of stainless steel. This change has been requested by many in the professional circle of mixologists since steel is clearly more resistant than glass in the fast and sometimes frantic hands of barmen.
