Bedtime Old Fashioned
Chamomile has been used for its relaxing properties and delicious light, herbal, apple tinged flavour for many thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians used it to “cure” fever, the Spanish utilised it in the production of sherry and it was one of the main ingredients in English beer during the Middle ages, until hops took over as the favoured bittering agent.
It was even utilised by Peter Rabbit’s dear old Mum after he returned shaken, from a visit to Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden.
Our Kocktail Curator Neil Donachie has utilised it’s delicate flavour and calming properties in this Bedtime Old Fashioned made with Buffalo Trace Bourbon… We think it’s the perfect nightcap!
