The Old Fashioned
The Old Fashioned
You cannot get more classic than a classic Old Fashioned. This humble concoction of four ingredients—whiskey, sugar, bitters, and water—is quite literally the cocktail that started it all.

Kings County Distillery Peated Bourbon Whiskey 375ml - New York
TASMANIA BITTERS Garden Quince
Gathered from the gardens of Tasmania, this golden fruit of paradise is brimming with exotic quince perfume. Rich, heirloom spice and musky fragrance are entwined with orange blossom, grapefruit and chamomile flower.
Genuine aromatic Tasmania bitters is an artisanal infusion of the finest botanical ingredients.
Steeped with natural herbs and spices, it is bittered with gentian root offset by unrefined whole panela cane sugar. Grown in mountainous alpine regions, gentian [gentiana lutea] has a long history as an herbal bitter and medicinal component. It is said to have purifying, strengthening and restorative powers. Small batch steeped, blended and bottled by hand, Tasmania bitters is a cocktail essential. It is also a wonderful natural soft drink flavouring, cooking and preserving seasoning, condiment, traditional folk remedy, tonic and digestif.
From New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since prohibition. Founded in 2010, Kings County operates out of the 118-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This not your average bourbon rather it is made from New York State organic corn and malted barley from the U.K., is twice distilled in copper pot stills and then aged in new charred oak barrels. It has a very strong sweet base with flavors of vanilla and caramel, a deep molasses taste to the middle notes, and leaves a smooth finish with hints of cinnamon and autumn spices. Aged for at least two years, this bourbon is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age.
It’s so good you can even sip it from the flask!
