One of the world’s oldest and most famous cocktails, this weekend marks the last chance to celebrate Old Fashioned Week (2nd-11th November). Set up in 2015, Old Fashioned week allows consumers to rediscover the classic serve, plus modern iterations, with ten ambassadors from bars across the world.
The official Bourbon of Old Fashioned Week, Wild Turkey have collaborated with a number of bars, hosting ‘Guided 101’ tours of London bars serving some of the best Old Fashioned cocktails. ‘London To Kentucky’, for instance, is available at MASH steakhouse for a limited time, striving to create the taste of the real Kentucky. For this drink, MASH’s bartenders have created a contemporary Old Fashioned, teaming Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon with green walnut wine, fig liqueur, a splash of rye whiskey, and classic Angostura Bitters.
