Created in the early 19th century, the Old Fashioned has been known by many names – a 'Bitter Sling' is just one of them from the 1830s. It was only coined an ‘Old Fashioned’ in the 1880s, and this is how we know it today. Much 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.
The not-too-sweet, complex woodiness of Brugal 1888 balances perfectly with the sugar. Meanwhile, the bitters unlock some of our more hidden rum notes, balancing the serve and tying the flavours together.
