History of the Old Fashioned Cocktail
It's claimed that the famous Pendennis Club of Louisville, Kentucky, invented the Old Fashioned, in honor of Colonel James E. Pepper. As with another famous Kentucky Colonel, Col. Pepper was not a military man but rather the recipient of the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Whether the Old Fashioned was invented at the Pendennis Club is debatable, but we certainly have Col. Pepper to thank for bringing this wonderful drink to the world. During his visits to Waldorf Astoria in New York, Colonel Pepper was known to socialize with other American captains of industry, including John D. Rockefeller and Theodore Roosevelt. It was here that the world began to recognise the Old Fashioned for what it is, a truly marvelous drink.
Our bottled cocktails are the perfect treat to share at a party, sip at home or as a decidedly stylish gift.
