Ginger Thomas Old Fashioned


One of our favorite twists on the Old Fashioned is the use of a house bitter - blending two dashing bitters together into one new, semi-homemade recipe. The Old Fashioned is the perfect vehicle for this experimentation, showcasing the bitters simply and beautifully. Our most cherished version is the "Ginger Thomas", a 60/40 blend of Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas and Bittercube Jamaican #1. The classic aromatic flavors of raisin, cinnamon, lemon, orange, clove, and allspice are accented with the more modern addition of ginger and black pepper, and the absence of anise offers a distinct differentiation vs Angostura and Peychauds.

David Nicholson 1843 Bourbon makes a great base, with its cocktail perfect proof of 50% ABV, and its soft wheated nature letting the spice of the bitters shine. It all comes together for a perfect blend of classic taste and modern sensibilities.

Kit includes: David Nicholson 1843 Straight 100 Proof Bourbon (750 ml), Liber & Co Demerara Gum Syrup (9.5 oz), Bittercube Jamaican No. 1 Bitters (5 oz), Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Own Bitters (5 oz).
