A New Take: The Maple Old Fashioned Recipe
We’ve created our Old Fashioned recipe using The Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Years Old. This new take on the classic drink is perfect for making at home as it pairs the sweetness and depth of Canadian maple syrup with the Sherry Oak 12 Years Old’s notes of wood-spice and dried-fruit, matured in exceptional sherry seasoned oak casks, adding to its richness and complexity.
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 bar spoon pure Canadian maple syrup
1 orange zest peel
2-3 large ice cubes
How To Make The Maple Old Fashioned
Simplicity is key. We suggest using pure and organic Canadian maple syrup, as well as an organic orange. With such few ingredients, take care to mix the drink thoroughly but gently to get the right blend of flavour and substance.
1. Add 1 shot of The Macallan Sherry 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the Angostura bitters, the pure Canadian maple syrup and 2 ice cubes. Stir rapidly for 15 seconds
2. Add remaining shot of The Macallan Sherry 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky and the orange zest peel, misting the glass and dropping it to the bottom
3. Add remaining ice cubes and stir gently for 15 seconds
