Best Bartending Supplies

  • Whisk

    231 Bedford Ave., at N. 4th St., Williamsburg; 718-218-7230

    Like many things Brooklyn, this kitchen outfitter has a quirky selection (and, of course, a blog). Appropriate for the cocktail-nerd-heavy neighborhood, it also has an unusually deep supply of bartending tools: muddlers, jiggers, and strainers, plus harder-to-find items like bar mops and cocktail umbrellas. The store stocks three sizes of swing-topped bottles for making very professional-looking citrus vodka or lavender gin, and it carries a huge range of bitters, ranging from classic (whiskey-barrel aged) to innovative (rhubarb, Aztec chocolate).
