The Mixology Talk Podcast, Episode Thirty Four

This episode is all about pour spouts – choosing, cleaning, and training your team to use them well.

Editor’s Note: This podcast was recorded back in 2015; since then, we’ve started producing our own pour spouts to solve the common issues we’ve seen with the ones already on the market. Check them out in our shop!

In today’s Episode…

It’s pourspout time! Yes, we talked for 12+ minutes all about these bad boys. Surprisingly enough, I learned a lot about how they can help bars run smoothly (and quickly)!

What is a Pourspout?

Chances are you already knew this one – basically it’s a nozzle that you stick on the end of an open bottle of that will both regulate the flow and allow you to access your spirits quickly (without having to take off the cap every time.)  They look just like the picture above, (though I’m actually cheating – those are our olive oil bottles from our kitchen!  Don’t tell…)

Listen in to Learn:

  • Everything you ever wanted to know about pourspouts
  • The best way to keep your pourspouts clean
  • Avoiding Rust in your metal pourspouts
  • Things to consider when choosing pourspouts for your bar

Stuff we Mentioned:
