Gold Fashioned

Invented by Michele Reina, available at Skylon, London.


The flavour profile is a twist of the classic Old Fashioned, using barrel-aged vodka to give an oaky sensation. The Amaro Tosolini gives the bitterness, and the sweetness is enhanced by salted caramel. The butterscotch candy plays with the mouthfeel - adding a creamy and buttery sensation that works with the vodka and the syrup. Stir with the cinnamon stick to bring out the herb and spice of the Amaro.
