The four cornerstones of mixology, aged in oak barrels, for an even more harmonious flavour profile, with a softer, more rounded alcohol kick, enhanced by the vanilla, caramel and spicy notes of wood. A mixology trend for true connoisseurs and, until recently, a select few international cocktail bars.
Barrel-Aged Negroni | Barrel-Aged Manhattan | Barrel-Aged Old Fashioned | Barrel-Aged Boulevardier
(Tanqueray no. Ten | Campari | Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino | Angostura Aromatic Bitters; 100 ML, 23.1%)
Like fine wines and spirits, this cocktail is barrel aged until the blend is perfectly enhanced by the warm, mellow, fruity notes that only a long time spent in contact with wood can provide. In this limited edition Negroni, the typical sweetness of red vermouth, the tartness of bitters and the powerful finish of gin are complemented by intense vanilla and woody aromas that add body and structure.
(Bulleit Bourbon | Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino | Angostura Aromatic Bitters; 100 ML, 24.3%)
The Manhattan is one of the most famous cocktails in the world. We’ve read about it in books, spotted it in films and seen the person sitting opposite us sipping it on a first date. It appears on the counters of the best cocktail bars when it’s time for an aperitif at sundown and the sunset is echoed in its amazing colour, the result of a perfect mix of Bulleit Bourbon and Cocchi Vermouth. Ageing in oak barrels gives a final touch of colour and a truly unique flavour.
BARREL-AGED OLD FASHIONED
(Bulleit Bourbon | Toschi Sugar Syrup| Angostura Aromatic Bitters| Angostura Orange Bitter; 100 ML, 29.3%VOL.)
The Old Fashioned is a whiskey lover's cocktail and has a long and fascinating history. It is one of the IBA Unforgettables and was created in New York in the late 19th century. It has a minimalist appearance and a unique elegance. Our oak barrel-aged Old Fashioned is a masterpiece with an intense flavour, enhanced by the balsamic notes of Angostura against a backdrop of spicy Bulleit Bourbon.
(Bulleit Bourbon | Cocchi Storico Vermouth di Torino | Campari | Angostura Aromatic Bitters; 100 ML, 22.5%VOL.)
Barrel aging is a process that requires patience and attention so that the cocktail can come out more harmonious, softened in the alcoholic tip and softened by the woody flavors of vanilla and caramel. In our barrel-aged Boulevardier the bitter note in the bitter balances the sweetness of the Cocchi Vermouth - and it is precisely this balance that gives space to the intense taste of the rocky and peaty Bourbon Bulleit.
