Rye Malt Manhattan

Let’s take a deep breath and dive into one of the most rewarding and richest of historic cocktails - the Manhattan - blessed be the fruit (cherry, lemon or orange twist). There are three mainstays at the top of this family tree - Sweet Manhattan (also commonly known as a Manhattan), Dry Manhattan or Perfect Manhattan. A Manhattan is whisky (usually Rye or Bourbon) mixed with vermouth and bitters. If you use dry vermouth it becomes a Dry Manhattan, if you use sweet (unsurprisingly) it’s a Sweet Manhattan and if you use a combo of the two it’s perfect. We’re partial to a Sweet Manhattan - there is something about the fructose hit of sweet vermouth that buoys whisky. But heaven forbid you take our word for it - try them for yourself.

Ingredients:

  • 15ml sweet vermouth
  • 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters (and we’re talking proper dashes here, not drops)

Method:

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing glass, stir until chilled, strain into a chilled coupette glass, garnish with an orange twist or a cherry.

This drink is there to play with, find your own ratio - if you find the ABV of Rye Malt Whisky confronting you may prefer a 40ml/20ml ratio, or some additional dilution. Whatever you end up with, we think you’re going to be as delighted as we are.

  • Chocolate Rye Malt Old Fashioned
    This spirit was meant to be turned into an Old Fashioned. Those warm, rich, chocolate notes are sent into a joyous overdrive. It sings with an orange twist, we’re quite partial to some walnut bitters too, have a play.

  • Rye Malt Whisky Sour
    It’s arguably the greatest cocktail of all time, but then ALL cocktails are arguably the greatest cocktail of all time. And that is always a fun argument to have. Whisky, sugar, lemon and if you like froth; egg white. You can make this at home - it’s not hard, give it a go.

  • Chocolate Rye Malt Highball
    What could be more simple? Whisky and soda. It’s all too rare, but when it’s made well there are few sparkling drinks more elegant. It’s super dry, but this just brings out the accents of the whisky lengthening and highlighting its natural characteristics.
