National Old Fashioned Day (June 14) is right around the corner! We are excited to toast to Dads with the classic Old Fashioned cocktail. We wanted to share a few whiskey brands recipes that are ideal to stir up this classic cocktail.

 

Brother’s Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The Straight Bourbon Whiskey features an elegant and exceptionally complex and balanced taste with a touch of sweetness and spice. The copper column and copper pot-doubler distillation method results in a four grain, high rye whiskey, that is a refined, rich and nuanced expression that is easily sippable in a high proof cocktail like a Brother’s Fashioned.

Brother’s Fashioned

  • 5 oz Brother’s Bond Straight Bourbon Whiskey

  • 25 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Measure all ingredients with jigger and pour into a lowball glass.
  • Add ice and stir.

Deanston Virgin Oak Whisky

For Dads that prefer a glass of scotch to celebrate, Virgin Oak is a true representation of Deanston’s unique character in flavor and style with notes of soft honey, brimming with candied oranges and juicy orange oils, complemented with creamy vanilla, caramel and warm, aromatic spice. Mixed into a Deanston Old Fashioned, the delicious drink balances sweet, citrus and bitter flavors.
