This fun and informative guide explores the history of the Old Fashioned: its birth as the “ur-cocktail” in the late nineteenth century, ascension in the 1950s and 1960s (as portrayed and re-popularised by Don Draper on Mad Men), and renaissance as the star of the contemporary craft cocktail movement.

A perfect gift for any whiskey drinker, the book boasts a sleek, stylish hard cover with striking photography throughout. With fifty elegant, delicious cocktail recipes, including classic variations as well as contemporary updates, this book is a must-have addition to any whiskey or cocktail-lover’s bookshelf.
