We’re not just talking about slinging drinks here. We’re talking about sending your craft cocktails to a new stratosphere of quality, consistency, and precision with a new piece of equipment that is engineered for speed and built for comfort. We’ve introduced you to the Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station that we demonstrated in Anaheim at NAFEM15, but if you missed the show, let’s take a tour and see what the “bartender cockpit” has to offer.
A Tour of the “Bartender Cockpit”: Engineered for Speed, Built for Comfort
The Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station is ergonomically engineered to better suit bartender needs when crafting cocktails. Tobin Ellis designed the “bartender cockpit” himself to meet efficient production standards in high-volume establishments without compromising the quality of the cocktail or the aesthetics of crafting them. As the first product of the series, the Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station includes a wide suite of features. Let’s take a look:
A Section-By-Section Look at the Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station
(A) Refrigerated Drawers – With two low-temperature refrigerated drawers to the lower left, the bartender gets the only NSF-rating for open food storage, as well as nine different pans for storing garnishes, herbs, fruits, and more.
(B) 24″ Drain Board Top – To the far left, the bartender has a drain board with drop-in stainless steel glass rack panels and an optional poly cutting board insert.
(C) Insulated Bottle Well – Storage that maintains temperature is important. This insulated well has the ability to hold nine 750ml juice bottles or six 1L stor-n-pours. Bartenders can keep wine, beer, champagne, juice, or syrups in close quarters without cross contamination into serviceable ice. A shallow depth model allows room for an optional soda gun manifold locker.
(D) 30″ Sectioned Ice Bin – The ice bin is in a very accessible location. It includes a standard 10-circuit cold plate with stainless dividers for separate ice storage. The bin is three inches shallower than standard designs, allowing the bartender to stand closer to their work counter and the guest he or she serves.
(E) Speed Rail – The speed rail, which is literally the front of the workspace, allows the bartender to stand forward and step inside the “cockpit.” This Perlick exclusive, rounded design includes a space for large footprint bottles that don’t fit inside a standard speed rail. It’s designed for optimal reach to pull bottles from the rail. Without the typical hard rail edges that press into the knees and legs, bartenders can actually lean against it without discomfort.
(F) Slanted Speed Rack – Just to the bartender’s right, the slanted speed rack is a vertical, angled speed rail that accommodates 12 liters, bringing the total station capacity to 27 U.S. liters within the bartender’s reach. Option plug-n-play accessories include a blender shelf and a bitters caddy replacing four liters of space with quick storage for up to 12 small bitters or syrup bottles. It also includes an LED light option.
(G) Pre Sink and Tool Caddy Combo – To the far right, the bartender has access to the main sink with an integrated glass rinser, sectional health code compliant tool caddy, a foot operated faucet, and an optional built in cubby for additional storage.
