The Drave Water Pipette balances advanced digital design and precision machined production for the intimate whisky ritual.
It takes its name from the Old Scottish word "to draw"—water into the pipette, an altered aroma into the nose, an extended spirit onto the tongue. This is an object for the whisky alchemist in you, transforming your spirit through the slow, ritualized addition of water to whisky. Drop. By. Drop.
The pipette pulls the eye into perspective acrobatics, a square profile that manages to compress its dimension around a vacuum bore.
The aluminum is first extruded and milled, then tumbled against porous rocks before being anodized and finally shock sprayed to create a uniquely textured matte surface.
The depressions on the ends are tailored to fit the fingertip, allowing you, the user, to arrest the central pull of gravity by vacuum, and draw water from your vessel.
