The Jack Rudy Roll-Up was created out of a desire for a sleek, streamlined bartender’s tool kit. Like our products, we wanted a highly edited bar bag – something that removed any excess or unneeded feature, and distilled the piece to its simplest, cleanest form.
To do so, we called on two close friends and highly talented (Southern) barmen: Paul Calvert of Paper Plane in Decatur, GA, and Eric Foster of Cask & Larder in Orlando, FL. We pulled their wants and needs together into one bag, something that offered flexible storage for a number of tools, small and large, and provided a stress-free catch all for a traveling, working bartender. We also worked closely with Jason Gregory of Makr, a designer and creative based in Winter Park, Florida, known for his well-crafted, high quality carry goods: wallets, bags, satchels and backpacks.
We constructed the bag from heavy duck canvas – a material that will maintain its strength over years of continuous use, but will give in all the right ways, transforming into a highly personalized piece that reflects the user. Accented with minimal closures, the bag folds in on itself, and a simple design of a canvas flap over the middle section keeps loose tools like spoons, knives, and tweezers secure. Two large pockets flank the middle section, providing flexible use for any number of pieces: cutting boards, juicers, muddlers and jiggers. Two smaller pockets allow for storage of bitters or a slender jigger.
