EXTRA MANHATTAN

Short & Strong

The Manhattan drink is one of style. With the Manhattan cocktail’s history tracing back to the 1880s at the Manhattan Club in New York City, it’s fair to say this drink has stood the test of time. A Manhattan cocktail recipe is for those who like their drinks short and strong, with just a few simple ingredients. Our version takes the classic Manhattan cocktail ingredients and has one simple tweak: replacing rye or bourbon whisky with Chivas Extra 13 American Rye Cask. This gives the drink a richer and fruiter flavour without overbearing the drink, as a portion of our blended Scotch whisky is finished in American rye casks for a more mellow flavour.

WHO INVENTED THE MANHATTAN?

According to some sources, the Manhattan cocktail was created at the Manhattan Club for Lady Randolph Churchill, who held a banquet in honour of the politician Samuel J. Tilden. During this era, people ordered a cocktail by the name of the club in which they first had the drink.
