The oldest and most popular cocktail of all time, an old-fashioned is everything a great cocktail should be, strong and simple, yet balanced to perfection.
In our gold medal winning version, we’ve blended the smoothness of bourbon with the spiciness of rye, both distilled from authentic family-run traditions in the birthplace where it all began, Kentucky. Finished off with a rich, dark sugar, our own bitters blend and a hint of orange peel.

As a mixologist, you don’t approach the Old Fashioned lightly. It’s an intensely difficult one to get right, despite it’s simplicity, and one that is very unforgiving of mistakes.

It’s because of this, that this is the cocktail we have gone through the most number of batches with, well above three hundred recipes. When you think of how many different whiskeys there are, finding the perfect one is a long, troublesome road.

The Old Fashioned is traditionally made with bourbon, though the purists will demand a 100% rye whiskey, insisting the taste is more authentic, dry and spicy. We hear both sides of the argument. A truly delicious Old Fashioned has a depth and smoothness to it that is very difficult to achieve with pure rye, however after experimenting, a bourbon-only drink seemed to lack the complex kick we were after.

So we decided to make our own statement, to find the perfect blend of both, that gave a drink that had hints of dryness, spice and complexity, while still developing a rich body on the tongue and a lingering after-feel in your mouth. One day on our long travels, we came across a traditional, family distilled bourbon made from red winter wheat, and after one taste, knew that was the one.

To finish it off, we had to find the right sugar that would support and enhance the whiskey, not dominate it, as well as blending a signature bitters blend to give just the right bite and woodiness to the drink. But three hundred recipes later, we finally feel we’ve captured the essence of a Kentucky fall harvest, in the most iconic and memorable cocktail you’ll ever taste.

But don’t ever, ever let us catch you putting a maraschino cherry in one of our Old Fashioneds. You barbarian.

  1. Beyond delicious! Treat yourself to this wondrous beverage

  2. I love an old fashioned and this definitely did not disappoint. I love the style of the bottle and I was really impressed with how quick the delivery was. The order updates was also welcomed. This drink is heaven in a bottle, simply delicious!!! A great gift idea too. Will definitely be sending for more soon. Thank you so much, excellent service!!!

  3. I have always liked whiskey but was never really an old fashioned lover until I tried this one. The presentation of the bottle was inciting in itself and I loved the backstory also. Usually I have found pre-mixed cocktails overly sweet and watered down so didn’t have high expectations but this one was exquisitely well balanced and surprisingly strong. It was the perfect end to a busy day.
    I ordered more on the spot and have been drinking them ever since.

  4. Best Old Fashioned I’ve ever had!!

  5. Really Tasty
