Many drinks are served with a signature garnish or a wedge of fruit to enhance flavors. These garnishes are just as important as the liquor itself and in most cases this is the finishing touch, the last bit of flare, before the customer is served. Condiment holders are designed to store fruits, olives and other garnishes on the bar top. If you have been to a bar recently, you have probably seen a condiment holder. These are the containers on the top of the bar, storing a range of garnishes. The main condiments found in these sectioned containers are oranges, cherries, limes and olives, although they can also store lemons, berries, pickles, melons and chunks of pineapple, depending on their application or the type of bar.
Some condiment holders have only a few sections, while others have many. These sections are typically separate white plastic bins that fit side by side into the condiment holder. These inserts come in different sizes and capacities depending on what is needed at the bar. Sometimes condiment holders have space below the plastic inserts for ice in order to keep the condiments cold.
