A sleek and stylish vintage-inspired bartender’s tool, our Julep Strainer partners perfectly with our Cocktail Mixing Glass when creating all your favorite stirred cocktails at home. Not only does our Julep Strainer provide a charming heritage feel to your cocktail-making, it generally fits into a pint glass better than a Hawthorn Strainer – so it’s the strainer you should reach for if you’re mixing in a larger vessel than a shaker. It works perfectly with our exquisite etched Mixing Glass to deliver superb stirred cocktails – such as our iconic Absolut Elyx Martini with style and panache.

Our Copper Julep Strainer is elegantly presented in a stunning ready-to-gift box with copper damask detailing, making it an ideal gift for any cocktail enthusiast.

California Residents: for Proposition 65 WARNING


Originally known as an “ice spoon,” the Julep Strainer was invented in the mid-1800s, around the time drinks with ice – notably the julep – were popularized. Consisting of a bowl-shaped cup perforated with small holes and a long handle, the strainer was held on top of your glass as you drank, preventing crushed ice and mint from spilling out and ruining your best Derby outfit. These days, of course, a simple drinking straw will suffice.

With the development of cocktail-making techniques in the latter part of the 19th century, the Julep Strainer was increasingly used by bartenders to strain liquids when pouring liquids into a drinking vessel. Once the ingredients had been mixed in a glass or shaker, the Julep Spoon was pressed against the inside of the vessel to strain out any ingredients you didn’t want to end up in the finished drink: seeds, fruit pulp, crushed ice.

Today, the Hawthorn Strainer might have eclipsed the Julep Strainer in terms of ubiquity, but experienced bartenders still prefer to use a Julep Strainer when making stirred drinks.
