Cocktail historian and all-knowing deity of drink David Wondrich has found a new way to make your beveraging life better: He launched a collection of punch bowls, ladles and glasses. Available now at Cocktail Kingdom, the punch collection is paving the way for his full line of glassware and bar tools, coming to the retailer this fall. In true Wondrich form, everything is historically accurate, modeled after vintage tools from the personal collections of Wondrich and Cocktail Kingdom Founder and CEO Greg Boehm.
The David Wondrich Classic Collection currently includes a ceramic punch bowl, English and French-style punch ladles and Georgian punch glasses, as well as one non-punch-related item: silver-plated Blue Blazer mugs. Come fall, expect to see the collection grow to include tools like heavier-than-you’re-used-to bar spoons, a double-tin shaker, historically accurate Hawthorne and Sazerac strainers and a jigger “like you’ve never seen before.” All available just in time for Christmas shopping, hint hint.
