The Old Fashioned is now one of the UK’s most loved cocktails. A blend of Bourbon, bitters, sugar syrup & orange oils is all that’s needed to create this signature drink. But… the secret lies in what Bourbon is used. We all have our favourites but in this exclusive event we will be showcasing one of the original Kentucky family bourbons, Wild Turkey. You’ll be guided through this event with an expert from the brand itself & also our brand manager at Smokestack. 

1st up you’ll receive a welcome drink, a whiskey highball, a tall drink that is light and refreshing to start off your evening right. Next, we’ll tie in a little masterclass in this event, you’ll learn how to make your very own old fashioned, we’ll teach you the tips & tricks to make the perfect beverage suitable for all occasions. 

Next up, whilst you’re enjoying your hand-crafted drink we’ll introduce you to some of Wild Turkey bourbon range in an informal Whiskey Tasting where you will sample 3 tipples of their range. Learning about the flavours & how the process to create these delicious tipples are made. Once you’ve tasted some of the best of Wild Turkey Range, no doubt you’ll be feeling a little peckish, so we’ll be treating you too a platter of wings, slaw and a few other sides. (Vegetarians can be catered for, please let us know in advance when booking your tickets!)
