Yep, you read that right! Old Fashioned Week is back for 2018 to celebrate the classic cocktail across the globe.
From 1st to 10th November 2018, some of the best bars are taking part in celebrating the love for (what we think) is one of the best cocktails ever created…..EVER! Bartenders are reaching for their mixing spoons to show off their old fashioned and new-fashioned creativity for ten days of fun.
Some of the biggest brands have signed up to take part including Havana Club rum, Rhum J.M from Martinique, Monkey Shoulder blended Scotch malt whisky, and Woodford Reserve bourbon.
Speaking of Woodford Reserve, they will be mixing it up with some of the nation’s best bars to host bespoke experiences, events and cocktails with a modern twist on the American classic.
Throughout the week, try special signature Old Fashioned serves in top bars including Milk & Honey, Bar III and The Edition, or treat yourself to one of Woodford Reserve’s music nights at Oriole, or The Fitz. Bar Swift will be bringing a “boudoir” 1950s style music event, as well as serving a special Southern style food menu and speciality Woodford Reserve cocktail for the entirety of Old Fashioned Week.
