Different Types Of Jiggers

  • Author:admin001
  • Release on:2019-06-04

 A jigger or bar jigger is an Hourglass-shaped measuring device used by bartenders to ensure that they pour accurate amounts of liquor into every drink. Usually made of metal (and sometimes plastic).
  A jigger of liquor refers to 1.5 ounces and the bar jigger was named after the measurement. The standard jigger measures 1.5 ounces on one side of the hourglass and 1 ounce on the other side. Now, however, you can buy jiggers in a variety of different measuring amounts – from 0.5oz / 1oz all the way to 1.5oz / 2oz and also in metric sizes (that means, like, millilitres).
  On the typical 1 x 1.5 ounces, the 1 ounce side is called a pony shot and the 1.5 ounce side is called a fluid chigger or jigger shot.

Different Types of Jiggers

Although the jigger pictured above is the standard and the most common you’ll see in bars across the world, it’s obviously not the only jigger you can buy.  Below is a variety of different types of jiggers – plastic, tall, and even a jigger cube for when you want more than just 2 measurements on hand.

Oxo Bar Jigger

This is the best-selling jigger on Amazon and also the highest rated. Likely because it adds those simple little features that every bartender wants in a jigger including a non-slip grip and incremental measurements on both sides. The Oxo jigger measures 1 oz on one side and 1.5 oz on the opposite end.

Tall Endurance Jigger

This stainless steel tall endurance jigger has measurements of 56ml (2 oz) on one side and 28ml (1 oz) on the opposite side. It has a mirrored finish and a rounded lip for that extra touch of class.

Multi-Level Bar Jigger

Instead of being stuck with only two measurements, this multi-level jigger has ridges marking 0.5 oz all the way up to 2.5 oz. Because of the ridges, it’s easy to see how much liquor is being measured out…if you’re looking at it from the outside…which we bartenders don’t.  So, that being said, this jigger is not the ideal choice for a busy pub or nightclub.  If you have a home bar, you might not mind the fact that it’s difficult to determine how much liquor you have in your jigger.

Plastic Bar Jiggers

  These ones are made from high-quality plastic and great because you can see right through them to easily figure out how much liguor you’ve poured.

Cube Jigger

This cool aluminum liguor measuring device is cube-shaped and each of its six sides has a different measurement. Pouring from 0.5oz all the way to 2.25 oz, this jigger cube allows bartenders to measure multiple measurements without changing bartending tools.
