The Classic Gift for the cocktail connoisseur, presented in a wooden box with clear lid.
In this specially-curated Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit you receive:
1 x Koval Rye Whiskey (200ml).
Koval is Unfiltered 100% Rye Whiskey. Heart Cut. Single Barrel and Organic.
Established in 2008, KOVAL produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits in Chicago's first distillery since the mid-1800s.
Only the “heart cut” of the distillate, no “heads” or “tails.” By using only the “heart cut" of the distillate – you create a brighter, cleaner take on whiskey.
The grains are sourced from a Chicago organic farmer collective in the Midwest. The spirit is aged in new American oak from Minnesota.
“This is no ordinary rye, because it doesn’t come from an ordinary distillery. [...] Despite being 100% rye grain, this whiskey is fresh and light [...] with a maple-y, candy corn entry and a kiss of spice on the “finish.” — The Wall Street Journal
1 x Royal Rose Demerara Simple Syrup (472ml)
Made with organic demerara sugar, this medium-bodied syrup works in every classic cocktail that calls for simple syrup.
1 x The Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters (20ml)
Dedicated to Professor Jerry Thomas (1830-1885), who is considered to be the most famous and important bartender of the 19th century, these bitters reveal citrus and dried fruit aromas which unite with the spicy flavours of cloves, angostura bark and cinnamon.
1 x RECIPE CARD
You can follow our recipe or modify it to your taste.
The “Whiskey Cocktail” seems to be the original incarnation of the Old Fashioned, and first appeared in the early 1800's. The technical definition is: “a drink containing a spirit, sugar, water, and bitters”. This cocktail was first mentioned in a book in 1862 by Jerry Thomas, and subsequently, a number of variations began appearing. Purists in the later 1800's called for a return to the "old-fahioned" recipes, and hence the new name.
