Cocktail Shaker Tin Pairing Guide

Cocktail Shaker Tin Pairing Guide

At Urban Bar we pride ourselves on the premium quality of our cocktail shaker tins. We use the finest Japanese steel for a luxurious shine to enhance your mixology display, as well as a high level of corrosion resistance for protection against rust.

Having the best quality cocktail shaker tins is a good first step to producing the finest cocktails. However, if they don’t fit together you won’t be able to get started! Follow our cocktail shaker tin pairing guide to find the perfect match for you.

Urban Bar Cocktail Shaker Tins

We have tried and tested our numerous cocktail shaker tins to bring you this informative buying guide. Some of our shaker tins have been developed as pairs, however they will actually fit with some other tins in our range.

When choosing your cocktail shaker tins it is important to consider the size of the opening and the shape. While a smaller shaker cup or glass may fit in to the top of your Boston tin, does the tapered shape give enough room for a good seal?

Choose from our list of cocktail shaker tins below to discover the available matching shaker tins.

Premium Boston Tin 30.25oz

Premium Boston Shaker Tin 85clLike a standard Boston tin, only better! Our Premium Boston Tin uses a finer quality 18/10 steel, giving a greater shine than our already superior Japanese 18/8 steel.

The high shine is particularly noticeable on the inside of the tin. This makes it a good match for the standard shaker glass or our Perfect Fit polycarbonate shaker glass.

However, this shaker tin can match with the same smaller steel cups as our standard Boston tin to create a tin on tin cocktail shaker.

Cheater Tin 16oz

Cheater Tin 16ozThe shaker tin with many names. Whether you call it a Cheater Tin, a Toby Tin, or a Speed Shaker, our 16oz tin is the perfect partner for a Boston can.

Replacing the standard breakable 16oz shaker glass, this steel cup is unweighted for good flexibility, giving a better seal. This small shaker cup is also an easy way of making a tin on tin cocktail shaker by pairing with your current Boston tins.

Most Boston tins have a standard size and shape, meaning this cheater tin is perfect for matching with non Urban Bar shakers.

Shaker Glass 16oz

Shaker Glass 16ozA Boston tin wouldn’t be the same without a Boston shaker glass! Along with the Boston tin, the 16oz shaker glass is usually a universal size, meaning it will fit with most large shaker tins.

Make sure to use a proper shaker glass to pair with your Boston tin; shaker glasses are usually heat-treated for a toughened finish. These cups are designed to withstand the mechanical shock of ice cubes repeatedly hitting the glass.
