Our Old Fashioned Gift Box is the perfect embodiment of sophistication and elegance. Invented in the 1800s, the Old Fashioned is built on a foundation of quality whiskey, typically bourbon or rye, for a smooth and robust flavour profile.

The whiskey's warmth is complemented by adding a simple syrup or sugar cube: this touch of sweetness brings a balance to the drink that’s truly unmistakable. 

Unlike many modern cocktails, it embraces a back-to-basic approach by allowing individual ingredients to shine. The bitters play a vital role, imparting a complex and aromatic character that takes the drink to new heights.

The sweet vermouth lends a touch of sweetness and a rich, complex character to the cocktail. When combined, these ingredients create a harmonious symphony of flavours that dance on the palate.
