Gold Fashioned Craft Old Fashioned Cocktail
Robert Haynes set out to create the ultimate version of the world's most iconic drink by sourcing only gold-standard ingredients, sparing no expense. Robert started behind the bar at The Violet Hour, the acclaimed Chicago cocktail bar, rising to Head Bartender. Gold Fashioned Batch #01 serves as a culmination of Robert's background in cocktails, bitters making, ingredient sourcing, and spirit-blending to create a truly unmatched at-home cocktail drinking experience.
The Gold Fashioned is a beautiful showcase of its base spirit, created by blending 8-Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon with a 5-Year Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey. This split-base style cocktail showcases the best of both worlds - featuring the sweet warmth of the Bourbon and the complementary spice notes in the Rye. Bitters are an essential component in any proper Old Fashioned, adding complexity and depth. The most exquisite spices the world has to offer are sourced to create elegant Saffron Bitters, including grade A Tahitian vanilla, Ecuadorian cacao, seville orange, and gentian root from the French Alps. Finally, just enough Fair Trade Demerara Sugar is added for balance and mouthfeel.
Serve 2 oz of Gold Fashioned in a rocks glass over ice. Holding the Orange Zest atomizer 3" above the glass, spray once directly towards center of the glass. Enjoy.
