Happy Hour Cocktail Recipes 2 - Signature Old Fashioned Crafted by Westward Distillery

Signature Old Fashioned Crafted by Westward Distillery

What’s more classic than an Old Fashioned? Here, our friends at Westward Whiskey are sharing their recipe for their timeless Old Fashioned. Perfect the technique in time for your next get together. Westward Whiskey has been blazing trails in Portland’s renowned distillery community since 2004. For nearly two decades, Westward Whiskey has brought something new, different and relevant to whiskey. A whiskey of the elements,  Westward is born from the unique culture, climate, and abundant resources of the American Northwest.  Their whiskey is matured to perfection in Oregon, where our hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters are the ideal environment to raise a world class whiskey.
