Classic Old-Fashioned

The Classic Old-Fashioned has been around for centuries. In fact, for bourbon connoisseurs, the Old-Fashioned is pretty much the bar standard. After all, a Bourbon Classic Old-Fashioned is a dram of bourbon that’s been seasoned and sweetened. Rule of thumb for this suave and simple cocktail? Use a quality bourbon. If you wouldn’t sip the bourbon by itself, it has no place in your Old-Fashioned. We recommend our gold medal-winning Isaac Bowman Port Barrel Finished Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Pro tip: Don’t have simple syrup? Use a cube of sugar instead.
