Founded in 1983, Metrokane, Inc. is the leading North American marketer of wine accessories and barware—including corkscrews, decanters, aerators, wine preservers, cocktail shakers, citrus juicers and bar tools. Metrokane products have wide distribution. They are sold, primarily under the nationally advertised Rabbit® and Houdini™ brand names, by department stores, big box retailers, discount chains, wine & liquor stores and online merchants. Retailers and consumers look to Metrokane for innovative products and the company continues to deliver year after year—starting with the Original Rabbit corkscrew and more recently with Rabbit Chilling Carafe, Rabbit Electric Cocktail Mixer and Rabbit Electric Wine Preserver.
In 2013, Metrokane was acquired by Taylor Precision products, the leading North American marketer of consumer and foodservice precision measurement products. This combination further enhances Taylor’s capability to offer the most meaningful brands and products to retail trade partners and builds a strong cornerstone addition to Taylor’s growing portfolio of companies. Taylor is building upon the sales, marketing and product design capabilities that have been the hallmark of Metrokane’s success.
