We are really proud to introduce our new Dexter Straight Bourbon. It’s the best bourbon we’ve ever made – named one of only 12 bourbons on the Ultimate Spirits list of the top 100 spirits.
It’s named after Edmund Dexter one of the most famous pre-prohibition whiskey makers in America.
It is most often drank neat or over ice.
However, it also makes for luxurious cocktails each with a great story…
PRINCE OF WALES COCKTAIL
In 1860 the Prince of Wales (Future King Edward VII) stayed with the world famous Whiskey Barrel Blender – Edmund Dexter at his home in Cincinnati on fourth street. The Prince of Wales (future King Edward VII) is credited with this cocktail in a book written by a member of the royal household. We’ve modernized it to the tastes of today.
- 2 oz of Dexter
- 1 tsp. of Simple Syrup
- 1 tsp. of Pineapple Juice
- Dash of Angostura or Brain Brew 1862 bitters
- 1 oz Sparkling Water or Champagne
Combine Dexter, simple syrup, pineapple juice and bitters in a shaker. Shake with ice for 12 seconds. Serve in a chilled coupe glass or in an old fashioned glass with fresh ice. Finish with 1 oz of sparkling wine or champagne.
To paraphrase what the future King might have said to Edmund during his visit.
“Bourbon is not only a drinking: it is sniffing, observing, tasting, sipping at and… talking about.”
p.s. We sold out the first edition in January in 57 minutes. This time we have much more – but it’s selling 5 times faster :). If you want it – I suggest you get it sooner rather than later.
