As all great inventions should, the idea was born out of open minds and one too many cold drinks on a summer day. Eric Prum and Josh Williams, two Virginia boys with an “obsession with vintage kitchenware and uncanny ability to fashion impromptu drinking tools,” have developed the Mason Shaker, a four-piece cocktail shaker based around the iconic mason jar.
After six months of working on their prototype, the Brooklyn-based duo has come out with a final design. The creators have already raised over $60,000 from roughly 1,500 backers and the product is ready to be sent out to honor initial orders. The final hurdle consists of raising an additional $5,000 for the final tooling and manufacturing of the shaker. Prum and Williams have taken to Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects, to secure this final amount.
