To help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan rapper Raekwon’s landmark album, ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx,’ the Staten Island hip hop legend teamed up with thirsty family Florida-based lifestyle bar brand, Mover & Shaker, to design limited edition strainer and pin sets. Only 300 sets are available and on sale now at moverandshakerco.com at $100 each.
This isn’t a game or a gimmick because Raekwon the Chef is truly a supporter of the bar world, sharing “We’ve all been in our homes lately more than we are used to and I just missed the energy of being in these restaurants and bars that I love. I’ve been to so many places all over the world and I see the craft of bartending like writing a rhyme! You can be creative and imaginative and like music, it makes you feel good! The bar industry has always showed me super love that’s why I came out with my wine Licataa which is an Italian sparkling red and now I’ve created this strainer as a collectors piece for all my music loving cocktail makers out there! It’s dope having pages like Thirsty to showcase all these talented bartenders and getting them the recognition they deserve. So now, I want to see all the fly bartenders do there thing in my Cocktail Drip Challenge I’m doing this week with @moverandshakerco. Stay tuned!“
Mover & Shaker’s Nick Hogan and I share our love for Wu Tang and he explains, “Since its inception, Mover & Shaker has always valued fusing popular culture with the bartending community, and this collaboration with hip hop titan Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan is the pinnacle,” Hogan explained.
Mover & Shaker got their start creating custom enamel pins for spirits brands as well as original designs that bring pop cultural icons into the bartending realm. Over the years, the company has added Marketing and Events Manager, Shannon Michelle, as well as a slew of products including limited edition barware, logo’d apparel, patches, hats, and even air fresheners. Mover & Shaker products are sold all over the world from Chile and Czech Republic to Iceland and Italy.
