Enjoy an old fashioned on National Scotch Day!

Whisky novices and connoisseurs in the US celebrate their appreciation for fine scotch today, 27 July, National Scotch Day.

To help them celebrate we got Monkey Shoulder, voted the world’s top tending Scotch whisky by Drinks International for a cheeky twist to a much loved Lazy Old Fashioned cocktail to celebrate the day with our US fellow whisky appreciators.

This easy-to-make and pleasure-to-drink cocktail is best served shared, and enjoyed responsibly. Enjoy!
