The Design
The Thirst Extinguisher, its design modelled on a vintage fire extinguisher, was first added to Asprey's cocktail shaker range in the 1930s (originals from that period are now highly collectable). Today's designs are made by Asprey's silversmiths to the same exacting standards, using precious sterling silver (rather than silver plate, as used in the originals). Each shaker is assayed and hallmarked, providing assurance of the silver's purity, as well as the name of the maker and date of creation. As with all our handmade cocktail shakers, each piece is the result of hours' of skilled craftsmanship.

Product Care
Please clean the inside before first use and also after every use. To clean, fill the flask half full with warm water and add a small drop of liquid soap. Replace the cap and shake for 20-30 seconds. Empty the contents and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Leave to dry naturally in an inverted position. Please do not store liquids for more than 2 days in sterling silver containers.

To clean the exterior, a silver cloth (not included) may be used to gently wipe away light surface marks such as fingerprints. For more stubborn marks and tarnishing, use a good quality silver polish; avoiding any contact with non-silver parts. Apply to the area with cotton wool working in a circular motion until the tarnish has lifted from the surface. Wash off all traces of the cleaner with warm soapy water, then rinse with clean water and dry with a soft lint-free cloth.

Asprey Moments


This masterpiece of the silversmith's craft was created in the Asprey workshops in the 1980s. Lifelike and exquisitely graceful, it was the pride of the Rosalind and Arthur Gilbert's villa in LA. It has been displayed at London's Victoria & Albert museum since October 2016.
