The World's Best Cocktail Bottling Note
Made using a 50:50 mix of rye-rich Bourbon and VSOP Cognac, naturally sweetened, with a healthy dose of Peychaud’s bitters and just a splash of Absinthe, this superb cocktail has been expertly blended in ultra-small batches by those handsome devils at the Handmade Cocktail Company.
The concept of the ‘Vintage Cocktail’ range is simple – you get all the ingredients for a superb cocktail pre-mixed, all you have to do is pour it over ice, stir, then strain off into your glass and garnish (in this instance with a twist of lemon peel). Each bottle carries a subtle set of roman numerals in the top right-hand corner indicating the year that the cocktail was ‘born’.
Whether this cocktail should be made with Cognac or Rye has been the subject of much debate over the years; this bottling uses a 50:50 mix to very pleasing effect.
