Our take on a maple old fashioned just might be served up at a certain lodge in the Pacific Northwest, mixing ingredients from both sides of the border. The base spirit took the 2016 whiskey crown, a 90% rye produced by a grand old Canadian distillery. Sweetness comes from a smoked maple infused bourbon - think liquid billionaire’s bacon, with barrel-aged bitters contributing notes of walnut, bing cherry, ginger, and gentian. Because every day, once a day, give yourself a present.
Kit includes: Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, Knob Creek Maple Whiskey, Bitter Housewife Bitters, jigger, spoon, and coaster.
Bitters+ Bottles is always superb. Well done once again!
