Irish American Old Fashioned

The best of Irish combines with the best of North America to produce this incredibly smooth, bottle rested Old Fashioned.  

The Old Fashioned is such a simple formula, Whiskey, sugar, bitters. Yet it’s this simplicity that allows for so much experimentation and customisation.

This Irish American Old Fashioned recipe takes advantage of the mellowing and rounding effects of bottle resting. However, if you want to make this recipe to serve right now, you can. Simply cut the amount of water in the recipe in half and stir all the ingredients together with ice in a mixing glass til it’s ice-cold and perfectly diluted.



Serves minimum 2 people. Please drink responsibly.
