Old Fashioned

£11.00

Contains: Premium Bourbon, Muddled Cane Sugar with Angostura and orange bitters

Origins: As the name might suggest the Old Fashioned cocktail has been around a while, in fact since the mid 19th Century and is mentioned in many cocktail books of that time. The ingredients are the same as an even earlier drink from as far back as the 1830’s which combined Whisky, Water, Bitters and Sugar and was known as a ‘Bittered Sling’. About 60 years later the Bittered Sling had a revival and was asked for as a cocktail made “the old fashioned way”.

Like most cocktails the Old Fashioned is claimed to be invented in a number of places including New York and Chicago but Louisville, Kentucky have claimed the Old Fashioned as their own and now have an Old Fashioned Fortnight in the first two weeks of June each year - certainly worth a visit!

Our Old Fashioned: The Old Fashioned is deceptively simple but if the ingredients or combinations are wrong it can completely miss the mark. We blind tested a number of combinations before deciding on our version. We blend equal parts Angostura and orange bitters with cane syrup before adding it in precise measures to premium bourbon. The Old Fashioned is on the sweet side, warming and comforting. It evokes a certain nostalgia as a classic cocktail should.

How to serve: Pour into a mixing glass over ice. Stir until chilled and strain into an Old Fashioned Glass and garnish with an orange peel. Alternatively pour over ice straight into the glass and stir until thoroughly chilled then add garnish.

ABV 36%
