Cocktail of the week – Gin Old Fashioned

Cocktail of the week: Victoria Spirits Oaken Gin Old-Fashioned

Andrew Borley, the Volstead Act

The wooded gins open an entirely new category of mixed drinks for gin lovers. Victoria Oaken has a slightly sharp Canadian whiskey-like after taste ideal for mixing an old fashioned.

2 oz Victoria Spirits Oaken gin
1/4 oz maraschino liqueur
2 dashes orange bitters
lemon twist

Assemble ingredients in an old-fashioned glass. Add some large ice and stir briefly to chill and incorporate. Peel a wide twist of lemon and squeeze its oils over the drink. Rub the twist around the rim, drop it into the drink and enjoy.
