Historic Cocktails: bourbon-based cocktail with Old Log Cabin bourbon

We present some special, ancient historic cocktail recipes, compiled directly from the booklet “puis le gas y dit” by Distillers Corporation Seagrams Limited of Montreal.

The recipes included in this book were found and tasted in law firms of connoisseurs, hotel club experts and world-renowned hotels of the time. Divided into five parts according to the spirit base from gin, Scotch whisky, Canadian and American rye to bourbon.


Old Log Cabin Bourbon Whiskey Cabin

Today, we continue with Old Log Cabin. This bourbon from Distillers Corporation Limited, bottled under the “in bond” standard, was distilled twice in copper stills and then aged in burnt oak barrels. Bourbon Old Log Cabin has existed since 1840, and today after many distilleries, it is the turn of Batch206 Distillery to take care of it.
