Contrary to what the name suggests, there are actually five of us and this miscalculation, no doubt, was a result of having one too many cocktails. Speaking of which, a great cocktail isn’t just a mixed alcoholic beverage, but rather a celebration of superior skills, quality ingredients and proper tools all working together harmoniously. We simply could not say ‘no’ to such a fine drink.
With this newfound inspiration (or intoxication?), we knew we had a part to play in sharing the cocktail making culture. As the old saying goes, “even the simplest tools can empower someone to do great things”. Henceforth we made it our purpose to offer premium quality barware at a very fair price. Through this, we hope to empower more people to start making great cocktails.
Because life, is just too short to have a badly mixed drink.
The 4 Barmen is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
For us, cocktail making is a very exciting journey especially when we continuously experiment with new types of spirits, ingredients and garnishes.
This gallery, which actually is our Instagram page, is where we journal about our progress. We invite you to follow us and hope that you would get inspired to start making awesome cocktails of your own. 😉

In the world of cocktail making, presentation is just as important as aroma & flavor. For that reason, complete the experience by serving your Moscow Mule cocktail the proper way.

We have launched with two distinct colors & finishing for our stainless steel barware items.
The first is called ‘Brushed Silver’ which as the name suggests, features a rustic matte satin finish in silver color. Besides the aesthetics, this finish is easier to maintain as scractches and finger prints are less visible.
The second is called ‘Mirrored Bronze’ which features a shiny & reflective finish that is all in bronze color. While slightly harder to maintain, this color & finish definitely stands out luxuriously.
The best way to answer this question is to share our experiece of building The 4 Barmen’s premium barware collection.
Part of the process involved was the arduous task of experimenting with countless amounts of bar tools of different quality levels. Through this, we had a great first hand experience of just how much impact superior materials and designs had over cocktail making and bartending. By then, we knew exactly what was good and could not accept anything else lesser; we felt our cocktails deserved that much respect. 😉
So when the time came to deciding what goes into our collection, we based the decision solely on the question “would we personally buy it ourselves and is the price worth it?”. If the answer was yes and yes, that particular item would be part of The 4 Barmen.
Therefore, you can expect the very best from us knowing that each product has been meticulously designed, produced from superior materials and thoroughly tested.
As our journey has only just begun, The 4 Barmen collection is still at an infant stage. While we believe we have most of the essentials already, we know that there are still many more awesome barware items that can be added to the list.
If you can’t find a particular barware item that you want, let us know. We just might have it already but did not yet post it up. And if we REALLY don’t have it, we will point to someone else that does. We’re always happy to help. 🙂
Every product from us has 6 months warranty which covers any manufacturing defects. Should you ever encounter an issue, simply reach out to us via Facebook Messenger, Instagram or email. Do provide us with as much details as possible so that the warranty claim can be processed quickly.
The recommended cleaning method is to hand wash these using a soft sponge or microfiber terry cloth with warm soapy water. This will maintain the item’s appearance for a longer period of time as compared to using a dishwasher.
Whenever possible, wash the item right after use or at the very least, rinse it with water to remove any residues. Dry it using a soft lint-free cloth to prevent water spots. Do not use any abrasive chemicals or cleaning sponges as these will leave fine scratches on the surface of the item.
Yes, all of our products are dishwasher safe though as mentioned above, hand washing will maximize its lifespan and preserve its appearance for much longer. This is particularly applicable for items with mirrored bronze finish.
The best is to display these barware items on a non-movable shelf. Avoid storing it in drawers as the opening and closing movements may cause the items hit each other and cause scratches and dings.
