Crafthouse by Fortessa Cocktail Smoking Box with Smoking Gun
Crafthouse (CRFTHS.5.9523) created by Fortessa and designed by Charles Jolly has the classic looks, a simplistic and ergonomic Art Deco design with a vintage flair and durability and solid build, to let you create authentic Craft cocktails at home, especially if you are an aspiring mixologist or a cocktail enthusiast. Charles Jolly is a world champion bartender and a winner of the prestigious James Bear Award has his signature on the Crafthouse professional metal bar tools and barware and this glass smoking box we’re reviewing on this page for smoking and infusing food, drinks, cocktail, cheese and more. In the box you will also get a smoking gun with an internal fan as well as two small trial size jars of wood chips with savory apple and hickory flavors. Glass tumblers and AA batteries are not included.
By using the wood smoke this stylish glass Crafthouse Smoking Box will give new strength, energy and sophistication to your cocktails- will allow you to make professional level cocktails at home no matter what your level or experience of mixology may be. The battery operated smoking gun included is the regular food and beverage smoker you may have seen before for smoking food. You just fill its chamber with charcoal and wood chips of your choice, put your cocktail ingredients in and stir it around, put it in the smoking box, shut the door, turn the switch on and let it smoke in the box. Smoke will fill the box and will infuse your drink with a beautiful smokey flavor and the longer it is smoked the more flavor it will have, but you may want to start with a little smoke at first to have that little bit of smoke, then increase it to your taste. You will certainly want to experiment with different spices, herbs and wood chips on different kinds of foods and drinks.
Shipping weight for the product is 10.2 pounds, the smoking box measures 9.5 x 9.5 x 10.75 inches. It has a solid build, is made of glass and stainless steel frame, has a walnut base inside and a drainage channel and a polished metal top with a convenient pull handle. It can be opened on both sides with the easy-to-use door latch (dual-sided pass through) that makes the experience a little more interactive. One advantage of having the double-sided pass through is you can put two cocktails in at once without any spillage. It is not suitable for being put in the dishwasher but is easy to clean- just wash by hand with soap and rinse it thoroughly. Crafthouse by Fortessa has a sturdy build and ergonomic design is a very nice looking unit that runs quite well, generating great results or wonderful tastes, aromas, and flavors. We like both the functionality and versatility it offers with a variety of foods and drinks you can smoke and infuse, and that it is easy to clean when you need to.
