Rob Roy / Ned Kelly
The Manhattan family is one of the greatest gifts from the cocktail gods. The Rob Roy is a Manhattan with Scotch. Perhaps with an Australian Single Malt, Ned Kelly is a suitable nickname? Another infamous, albeit more local, outlaw. In the year the world reassesses police forces, maybe it’s apt to drink in their honour? Ned Kelly and his gang were also lesser-known as bootleggers. To the extent they had a decoy still at their camp, in case the police discovered them, with another more impressive still downstream. Before he was hanged in Melbourne Gaol, Ned’s last rumoured words were “Such is Life”. I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s as good a sign off as any other.
