Simplicity In A Glass: Cotswolds Old Fashioned

Posted on November 03, 2020

 

Our spirit, your whisky 

 

From the 30th October until the 8th November, cocktail enthusiasts across the world come together to enjoy Old Fashioned Week - that's ten full days of celebrating, you guessed it, the iconic Old Fashioned cocktail!

A traditional Old Fashioned is made with Bourbon Whiskey, sugar, aromatic bitters and orange peel and is diluted by using lots of ice. Like many cocktails, the origin is shrouded in the mist of time, but the cocktail was first mentioned in a New York paper, The Balance and Columbian Repositoryin 1806 and is thought to be the primordial cocktail of all time. Since then, we have seen lots of variations of this straight-forward cocktail. 

Our Head of Mixology, Oliver Morris, has created an Old Fashioned using our Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky which we hope you'll enjoy making at home. Scroll down to find the recipe!

Simplicity in a glass. Delicious notes of sweet malted barley, hints of caramel and overtones of toasted butterscotch with a bitter marmalade finish.

10ml maple syrup
2 x dashes aromatic bitters

METHOD:
Dissolve the whisky and maple syrup in a cocktail jar or glass. Add ice and stir continuously for dilution. Add the bitters, more ice and stir a few more times. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and express orange peel around the glass. Garnish with the orange peel and serve. Enjoy!
