Our Story


The Boston Shaker has been the Nation’s Neighborhood Cocktail shop since 2008. We are a unique independent retailer founded by cocktail aficionados who wanted to make professional-grade cocktail supplies available for the home bartender. 

Our business is fueled by a belief that cocktails are a channel for creativity and connection. That’s why we’re passionate about giving more people the tools, ingredients, knowledge and know-how to put their best drink forward. 

Today The Boston Shaker is a neighborhood shop with a national presence. We’ve always had a storefront, and you can visit us right here in Davis Square any day of the week. Our online store, www.thebostonshaker.com, is always open. It’s our pleasure to ship to everywhere from Massachusetts to Hawaii, (and we have shipped to the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico too). 

If you want to mix it up with us, consider signing up for an online or in-person cocktail class, it’s a great way to learn a new signature beverage you can serve all season long.
