Where It BeganUpdated 13 days ago

After venturing into home mixology and becoming frustrated with the bar tools available, founder and product designer Adam Craft set his sights on reinventing the home bar experience -- starting with the three-piece cocktail shaker.

“I wanted a shaker that would not leak, would not get stuck closed, felt good in my hand and was built to last. I purchased dozens of shakers that claimed to be the best, and every single one of them fell short. That’s when I knew there was a problem and I became passionate about solving it.” - Adam Craft

Adam’s obsession to reinvent the standard cocktail shaker resulted in 2 years of prototyping, testing and iterating until he perfected the shaker design. In 2019, he launched his flagship design, the Elevated Craft Hybrid Cocktail Shaker and raised more than $2.5M from 29,000 enthusiastic crowdfunding backers to bring the product to life.

The viral success of our flagship product put Elevated Craft on the map and created a thriving start-up based in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Elevated Craft Studio is a mashup between a sleek design studio and a funky speakeasy bar. The 3d printing workshop pumps out concept designs and a fully stocked custom bar awaits brainstorming sessions, entrepreneur meetups and video shoots.
