Old Fashioned cocktail with bourbon
Our classic Old Fashioned cocktail is made using Four Roses bourbon and Angostura bitters with muddied orange. Includes orange and preserved cherry garnish.
Each 25cl pouch contains 3-4 serves of Good Old Fashioned, 27% ABV (approx).
The Old Fashioned is one of the simplest and earliest versions of a cocktail, very similar to the ‘bittered sling’ popular in the early 1800s, made with sprits, bitters, water and sugar.
In the 1860s, as cocktails became more complex, drinkers harked back to the simplicity of yore: they demanded to drink something more ‘old fashioned’.
The original version came back into vogue, commonly made with whiskey or rye, rather than bourbon.
Then, in 2000, a certain TV series about advertising made the old fashioned very much in fashion again, as Don Draper’s drink of choice.
While times change, great taste does not.
