    History

    Always in Style

    Originally referred to as a ‘bittered sling’, the cocktail we now know as the Old Fashioned was first mentioned in 1806. After numerous permutations throughout the 19th century, the original recipe came back into vogue in the 1860s and was commonly referred to as ‘old fashioned’, a name that has stuck ever since.
