Gourmet drumsticks pepper mills and now muddlers are being made in Newport, Maine by Vic Firth, former tympanist for the Boston Symphony. Firth’s company started with drumsticks, then pepper mills, and has just added the muddler to the lineup. The pepper mills and I presume the muddler are made from cherry or good Maine rock maple. The pepper mills are widely available (I got mine at Goodwill, shh!) and the muddler is available online at Bargreens. Sounds perfect for mixing up a cool mojito from your garden mint.
