EVERLEIGH BOTTLING CO - Famous Four
The signature Everleigh Bottling Co. gift set. The Famous Four collection is comprised of four of the most iconic cocktails in history: the Martini, Negroni, Manhattan and Old Fashioned. For us, a 'classic cocktail' is a timeless, elegant drink, simple in style and form. Cocktails of this calibre are bold and proud in flavour and appearance. While there are so many classic cocktails to choose from, we believe that these are the four that come up trumps time and time again. The beauty of the Famous Four lies in their simplicity: quality ingredients, expertly mixed.
Described by author H.L. Mencken as ‘the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet’, the iconic gin Martini is arguably the finest of all classic cocktails. Our preferred style is ‘wet’, comprising of two parts gin, one part dry vermouth.
The Negroni first made a stir in Italy in 1919 and is now internationally recognised as the ultimate pre-dinner cocktail. Reviewed as ‘one of the best Negronis we’ve ever had. Anywhere. Ever.’ by World’s 50 Best Bars, our secret is quality ingredients in perfect balance.
As rich and sophisticated as its namesake, The Manhattan is an elegant classic cocktail that dates back to the 1870s. A perfect marriage of spicy American rye and delicate Italian sweet vermouth, the Manhattan is an excellent aperitif or after dinner sipper.
There are many ways to make this popular spirit-driven classic. Our version is what we call the Old Old Fashioned: no over-dilution, no salad, just great whiskey, bitters and sugar. An excellent night cap to be enjoyed with little interruption.
Each bottle contains one cocktail serving. Store cocktails at room temperature and chill before serving (-5 degrees is ideal). Enjoy responsibly.
