For the second time, Perlick has been recognized internationally for superior product design and functionality, receiving a 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ award for its Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station. Perlick was selected for the honor, also known as the “Oscars of industrial design,” from thousands of companies throughout the world.
“The coveted GOOD DESIGN award confirms that the Tobin Ellis Signature Cocktail Station is a superstar that empowers bartenders to work better and ultimately provide superb customer service,” says Jim Koelbl, Perlick Vice President of Sales.
Perlick engineers partnered with 6-time national bartending champion and renowned bar designer Tobin Ellis to create the cocktail station. Launched in February 2015, the station functions as a “cockpit” for bartenders, putting everything at their fingertips to enable fast, high-volume service in an ergonomically sound work area.
The station houses equipment such as: refrigerated drawers; 24” drain board top; insulated bottle well; 30” sectioned ice bin; rounded speed rail; slanted speed rack; prep sink and tool caddy. To watch Tobin Ellis work his signature cocktail station, click here.
