Perfecting the Classic Old Fashioned

By | September 16, 2019

When it’s time for a drink after a particularly long day at the office or a strenuous sweat session, you deserve to build yourself a cocktail that won’t disappoint. If an Old Fashioned is your go-to, Knob Creek® Straight Rye Whiskey should be on your radar. It’s made by selecting the finest rye grains, which are aged in charred oak barrels—making for a rich flavor and signature spice.
