The Slugger Muddler design is as functional as it is attractive. The tapered grip feels very natural in your hand. Instead of hitting home runs though, our Slugger does most of its damage to mint and limes.

The Slugger Muddler is 10" long and 1 1/4" wide. This size is large enough for any drink you need to muddle. The grip portion is tapered down to 3/4".

These muddlers are individually crafted using a process called wood turning. This hand turning process and the unique characteristics of the wood ensure that no two muddlers are exactly alike. Once our muddlers are turned, they are coated with a food grade mineral oil and beeswax blend. This blended finish not only protects your muddler, but it also greatly enhances the natural beauty of the wood.

The Woods We Use
We are very selective about the woods we use for making muddlers. We use only domestic hardwoods and choose woods that have closed grain. A closed grain wood when finished is very smooth to the touch. Closed grain woods, unlike open grained woods like oak, have smaller pores and are easier to clean.

Our Cherry muddlers are made of solid domestic Black Cherry. Cherry is one of the most attractive domestic hardwoods. The natural color of the wood is a reddish tone. We do not dye any of our woods and we do not laminate (glue) pieces of wood together. When you order a muddler from us, it will be one solid piece of cherry.

Our maple muddlers are made of domestic maple wood. The light color offers a very attractive modern clean appearance. In the kitchen, maple is often used in making cutting boards because it is durable and easy to clean. Maple can have a figured appearance that is often called curly or tiger maple. This appearance doesn't effect the use of the muddler, it only enhances the beauty. We do not charge extra if your muddler has a figured appearance.

Q. Can I use the muddler upside down?

A. Yes, it is very common to muddle with the knob end down. It is just a matter of grip preference as both ends are suitable for muddling.

Q. Is Maple or Cherry better for muddlers?

A. Both perform their muddling jobs admirably. The choice is simply a question of preference. Some like the warm red tones in the cherry while others like the very clean lighter look of the maple.
