The Old Fashioned Cocktail

The Origins of the Old Fashioned Cocktail

The storied Old Fashioned dates back to the 1800s. Once known simply as a whisky cocktail, it was favoured for its unembellished approach: a touch of sugar, a splash of bitters, whisky, and a stir. Historians suggest that the Pendennis Club of Kentucky is the birthplace of the “Old Fashioned‘s name, where it was created in honour of a retired colonel. Over time, this classic drink has evolved without losing the heart of its origins—a true testament to its timeless allure.

A Taste of Tradition

This cocktail brings a rich harmony of flavours to the palate – a bold blend of sweetness, bitters, and the depth of whisky. This drink is the perfect companion for a sophisticated dinner party but also ideal for a relaxed evening with friends after a busy day. It is a cocktail meant to be enjoyed slowly, allowing you to fully appreciate the scents and tastes of a well-made mix.
