Our Cola Cube Old Fashioned is made from a base of bourbon to which we add cherry liqueur, homemade cola syrup, angostura and vanilla bitters. The bourbon we use is from the most awarded distillery on the planet, The Buffalo Trace Distillery. With over 200 years of experience in creating rich and complex barrel aged whiskey with notes of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit, we thought it was just the product to star in our delicious Cola Cube take on the classic old fashioned.
WHAT'S IN OUR OLD FASHIONED?
The Old Fashioned cocktail is a heady mix of bourbon whiskey, sugar syrup, a splash of water and just a few dashes of bitters. These simple ingredients combine to create a special kind of magic.
For our old fashioned, we add cherry liqueur, homemade cola syrup, angostura and vanilla bitters to a base of Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
“And it takes just like cherry cola, C-O-L-A, cola!” - Ray Davies of the Kinks.
HISTORY OF THE OLD FASHIONED
It's claimed that the famous Pendennis Club of Louisville, Kentucky, invented the Old Fashioned, in honor of Colonel James E. Pepper. As with another famous Kentucky Colonel, Col. Pepper was not a military man but rather the recipient of the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Whether the Old Fashioned was invented at the Pendennis Club is debatable, but we certainly have Col. Pepper to thank for bringing this wonderful drink to the world. During his visits to Waldorf Astoria in New York, Colonel Pepper was known to socialize with other American captains of industry, including John D. Rockefeller and Theodore Roosevelt. It was here that the world began to recognise the Old Fashioned for what it is, a truly marvelous drink.
