Crafting the perfect old fashioned

Woodford Reserve

About Easy to make but more difficult to perfect, the Old Fashioned is a delicious mix of whiskey, bitters and a dash of sweetness. This cocktail might be more than 200 years old, but it’s anything but stuffy.

Woodford Reserve Glass

Method For best results, combine 10ml Old Fashioned Sugar Syrup with 50ml Woodford Reserve in a mixing beaker, add ice and stir slowly with a bar spoon for at least three minutes. Add fresh ice to your glass and strain your cocktail into it. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

About the Old Fashioned

Icon Adhering to the original definition of a cocktail (spirit, bitters, sugar and water) the Old Fashioned dates to 1800. What is incredible is how little it has changed over the intervening 200 years.

Woodford Reserve Glass

Icon In its infancy, the drink went by the name ‘Whiskey Cocktail’ and was actually enjoyed in the morning, as cocktails were, to restore and act as an ‘eye opener’. By 1840 it had gained cult status.

Icon By the late 1800s bartenders were getting very experimental, but if their convoluted concoctions didn’t appeal you called out for an Old-Fashioned Whiskey Cocktail.

Icon As it evolved the drink did adopt a few changes, most prominently becoming served over ice. It was also no longer a quick, down-in-one morning pick-me-up, but rather a slow sipping cocktail.

Icon Prohibition's 13-year interlude harmed the Old Fashioned, with chunks of fruit being mashed into the drink, maraschino cherries to garnish and then topping off the fruity mess with soda.

Icon Thankfully a revival of the cocktail saved the traditional recipe and has ensured this charming, whiskey-rich drink has made it safely into the 21st century.

    Anonymous,

    This is one of my favourites. A very smooth, caramelly bourbon. Excellent on the rocks but maybe too quaffable. A bottle never lasts long.
