Alexander & James Helps Spirit Enthusiasts Bring the Luxury Bar Experience to Their Home

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - May 7, 2013) - Premium spirit expert Alexander & James is giving its customers the opportunity to recreate their own luxury bar without leaving the house.

Boasting over half a century of spirit knowledge and named in tribute to two of the greatest spirits masters ever - Alexander Walker and James Buchanan - A&J offers a luxurious choice of spirits, expert knowledge, exclusive gifts and editorial content online. The online store has also uniquely compiled a simple checklist of bar accessories to impress your friends and family with a lavish party to remember.

Whether it's first-class tequila, single malt whiskeys or premium vodka brands, the home bar of any spirit connoisseur or willing host will be complete after a few tips from A&J's home bar bible.

All of the key ingredients to the perfect high-end bar experience at home can be found on the A&J website, but here are some of the basics that are included in the handy guide.

Spirits measure (Jigger): A jigger is what you will often see a barman use to measure out the spirit of your choice. A&J recommend a double jigger in stainless steel that will offer 25 and 50 ml shots to complement any drink.

Cocktail shaker: The integral tool for any budding mixologist, the cocktail shaker comes in many varieties, including the French, Boston and 'cobbler'. Most bartenders use a Boston shaker and, with a pint-sized mixing glass and in-built strainer, it's the perfect addition to any home - whatever your skill level.

Ice bucket and tongs: Desperately trying to prise an ice cube from your freezer's tray would not suit the feel of your luxury home bar, so an elegant ice bucket is essential for the speedy cooling of your favourite drink.

Muddler: Perfect for cocktails that require a complex mixture of flavours, the blunt end of a muddler is the ideal tool to crush fruit, herbs or ice. Make sure it's long enough to reach the bottom of your cocktail shaker and you'll be mixing like a pro in no time.
