1856 has all the bold flavor you'd expect from whiskey made from a blend of 8-14 year old barrels and is the perfect backbone in this timeless cocktail. Hella Cocktail Company's Old Fashioned Premium Mixer adds a touch of sweetness, along with gentian root and spices to compliment the whiskey. The finishing touch is their Mexican Chocolate bitters, which adds even more depth and that delicious chocolate aroma we all love.
