Back Label Story:
The Manhattan, which first appeared in print in O.H Byron's 'The Modern Bartenders Guide' in 1884, is a true classic. We love this drink for its harmony, balancing just the right amount of sweet, rich, bitter, and spice. Like any classic, you respect what makes it great. That's why we use the time-tested Manhattan recipe featuring sweet vermouth, a dash of aromatic bitters, and our bourbon and rye whiskeys. What isn't a classic, but adds depth and complexity, is barrel aging. For that reason, we let our Manhattan age in used rye barrels to fully marry the flavors. Worth the wait, we hope you enjoy this most intricate rendition of a true classic.
Crafted using carefully measured, high-quality ingredients we follow the classic 2:1 ration recipe with a dash of aromatic bitters per serving.
