Classic Old Fashioned

A Drink Whose History Winds Has Roots in Louisville, KY

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Old Wm. Tarr Manchester Reserve
  • 1 sugar cube (or .5 tsp. sugar)
  • 2-3 dashes bitters


Method
In a mixing glass, Muddle sugar with Angostura bitters, add whiskey. Stir with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a citrus peel or cherry.

Fun Fact
Initially concocted in 1880 in a private social club in Kentucky called the Pendennis, young James E. Pepper – later a famed distiller and neighbor to our own vintage distillery – took the drink with him to the Waldorf-Astoria hotel bar in New York, where its popularity began to grow and was soon a big city staple.
