Coffee Old Fashioned is our take on a classic cocktail recipe, with a typically Melburnian caffeinated kick.
We start with our award-winning whisky, aged in Melbourne’s variable weather in red wine barrels from world-class local wineries. We’ve always intended our rich, fruity whisky to shine in a cocktail. Taste this, and we rest our case.
Australians care about coffee. So we went to the experts at Mr Black. Their cold-brew coffee liqueur is a bartender’s dream. We take our distillery-made orange bitters to offer spicy, zesty balance.
Pour over ice with a twist of orange peel to garnish. If you’re serving with food, muster maximum willpower and save Coffee Old Fashioned ‘til last. A chocolatey dessert or tiramisu will be a delicious match. One word of warning though. Bring this to a party, and it might just steal the limelight.
Nose / Intense coffee, vanilla with a hint of orange peel
