Woodford Reserve unveils Old Fashioned Cocktail SyrupBy Melita Kiely
Brown-Forman has launched Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup to help bartenders deliver faster service.
Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup is made using bitters, sugars and botanical extracts to deliver a “syrup with depth”.
Available from January 2019 from wholesalers such as Carlsberg, Amathus, Coors and Hills Prospects, bartenders will receive a complimentary 500ml bottle of Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup when they purchase a bottle of Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select.
The recommended serve is 50ml Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select Bourbon and 10ml of Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned Cocktail Syrup, stirred with ice for 10 seconds and then garnished with orange zest.
Emily Richardson, head of super premium brands, Brown-Forman, said: “Woodford Reserve has always sought to create a perfectly balanced liquid and the Old Fashioned Syrup was no different.
“Woodford Reserve is comprised of more than 200 delectable flavour notes, from bold grain and wood, to sweet aromatics, spice, fruit and floral notes, so it was important to identify key profiles to complement this.
“The final liquid is the perfect reflection of the quality and craftsmanship of Woodford Reserve and we look forward to the reception from the UK trade.”
