OLD FASHIONED

The bartenders favourite or The Godfather of mixed drinks.

Steeped in American history dating back to the early 18th century. Claimed by many New York establishments as it’s birthplace. We think it’s a drink developed by many, but made popular in the prohibition period in the US from 1919 when booze made illegal. Bootleg spirits distilled in hidden cellars or makeshift operations, most likely enterprising gangsters! The flavour notes sometimes so harsh on the palette, had to be softened and balanced by speakeasy bartenders using bitters and sugars and diluted with water.

Nowadays our bourbons are crafted and distilled to perfection, and the bartenders job recreating The Old Fashioned cocktail is made easier. However that said, the experienced bartenders palate has many years of fine tuning, and reestablishing the magic notes of this Classic recipe comes with time.

Forbidden Cocktails have captured this magic in every single bottle

Bourbon, Angostura bitters, demerara sugar & water.

Bourbon aging takes place in new charred-oak barrels. Due to that charring process, compounds that create the flavors of caramel and vanilla are present in almost every Bourbon, add the bitters and it’s creates grit to the pallet and finally a sweet sugar finish that softens the whole experience, and rounds off the balance.

Expect a velvet texture on the tongue.
