Created during the early part of the 19th century, this cocktail has been known by many names – a bitter sling is just one of these identities from the 1830s. It was only coined as an ‘Old Fashioned’ in the 1880s, and this is how we know it today. Like Brugal which was founded in 1888, this classic cocktail has stood the test of time, and with good reason.
With a composition of spirit, sugar, bitters and water, this is the cocktail that started it all. Brugal 1888 in an Old Fashioned is something not to be missed.
Our not too sweet, complex woodiness balances perfectly with the sugar, while the bitters unlock some of our more hidden rum notes, balancing the serve and tying the flavours together.
