October 23, 2020 – Just in time for “Old Fashioned Week” in November, Aberfeldy has shared this take on one of whisky’s classic cocktails. Of course, it uses Aberfeldy 12 instead of Bourbon, and there’s some honey in the recipe to bring out the sweetness in the whisky.
2 ounces of Aberfeldy 12 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
0.5 ounce of local honey syrup (one part honey and 1 part water)
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
2 dashes of orange bitters
Add the honey syrup, bitters and Aberfeldy 12 to a mixing glass, then add ice and stir for around 30 seconds to dilute. Pour into a rocks glass and add a block of ice, then garnish with an orange twist while expressing the oils over the drink.
