Dubai-based Muddle ME has introduced the Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station, created by Perlick in collaboration with award-winning bartender, Tobin Ellis.
The Cocktail Station includes products designed to create a more ergonomic experience for bartenders, such as refrigerated drawers with an NSF rating for open food storage, and ninth size pans for garnishes, herbs and fruit.
A 24” drain board top features drop-in stainless steel glass rack panels and an optional poly cutting board insert. An insulated bottle well has the capacity to hold nine 750ml juice bottles or six, one-litre store-n-pours. It keeps bottles within arm’s reach, avoiding cross contamination into serviceable ice and is also available in a shallow depth model, which has room for an optional soda gun manifold locker.
A 30” sectioned ice bin is three inches shallower than standard designs, allowing the bartender to stand closer to the work counter and guests. It includes a standard 10-circuit cold plate with stainless dividers for separate storage of a variety of ice shapes.
The speed rail features Perlick’s rounded shape and is designed for optimal reach and comfort – bartenders can pull bottles from the rail and stand against it without hard rail edges pressing into their knees and legs. It includes space for large footprint bottles that don’t fit in standard speed rails.
A slanted speed rack accommodates 12 litres, bringing total station capacity to 27 litres. Optional plug-n-play accessories include a blender shelf and a bitters caddy, which provides quick access/storage for up to 12 small bitters or syrup bottles.
LED lights can also be added to the rack. The prep sink and tool caddy combo consists of a main sink with integrated glass rinser, sectional health code compliant tool caddy, foot-operated faucet, and an optional built in cubby for additional storage.
