About this cocktail
Invented by bartender James E. Pepper in Louisville, Kentucky in 1880, the Old Fashioned is the epitome of the original cocktail formula, as handed down in 1806 – spirit, sugar, water and bitters. The classic whisky drink was cemented in pop-culture by insatiable mad man, Don Draper. Rich, smooth and silky with hints of oak, spice, vanilla and caramel.
