Bartenders get to know Barfly Mixology Gear.
Back in 1968, Mel Wallick believed North America’s industrial markets could benefit from selling top-tier products at manageable prices. In an effort to bring this idea to fruition Wallick established his company, Mercer Tool Corp. on Mercer Street in NYC. What began as local manufacturing of industrial files, gradually evolved into a global corporation with a comprehensive line of products including Mercer Culinary and Barfly Mixology Gear.
Mercer is a second-generation family business that dials in on the preservation of high-quality performance, service, and value.
Barfly Mixology Gear is optimized to guarantee solid appearance, temperature, consistency, and proportion. The tools are made from high quality 18/8 stainless steel and other materials, all of which can withstand the wear and tear of a busy bar. They also offer many finishes and styles to suit any bar décor.
Fundamental bar tools are the bread and butter of the Barfly Gear. Its durable shakers and tins have capped bottoms and are comprised of 18/8 heavy-gauge stainless steel to ensure a maintained shape. Another top seller, the heavy-duty Spring Bar Strainer, has ideal height and width to fit into any tin. Not to mention its jiggers are well balanced and make consistently accurate measurements.
The prowess of Mercer’s products is thanks to its current relationship with the bartending community. Knowledge from professional mixologists is constantly relayed to Mercer. In turn, they use it to discover what is generally lacking when it comes to tools, and what can be done to improve products.
Barfly plans on continuing to introduce tools that help the bartender innovate and manifest. The company views bartenders as artists and take pride in giving them the equipment to perfect their craft.
