World Cocktail Day

World Cocktail Day is marked as the publication date of the first definition of a cocktail on May 13, 1806 which stated a “Cock-tail is a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters”, strikingly similar to the components of an Old Fashioned. Celebrate World Cocktail Day with the original cocktail, the Old Fashioned, using Hudson Baby Bourbon. The first New York aged whiskey since Prohibition is the perfect introduction to aged whiskey spirits with its vanilla and caramel tasting notes.
