Bua’s Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned style cocktail is an essential expression to try with any good whiskey. This recipe pulls at some of the rounder flavours in Bua coming from the use of bourbon barrels in our maturation.


  • 75ml / 2.5oz Bua Irish Whiskey
  • 5ml / .25oz agave syrup / 1
  • 1tsp crème de cacao
  • Garnish with an expressed orange peel

Preparation: Add ingredients into an Old Fashioned glass. Add 2-3 ice cubes and stir for 20-30 seconds. Add a few more ice cubes. Express orange peel over glass and set atop cubes.
Agave syrup: in a heat safe vessel, combine 2 parts blue agave sweetener with 1 part hot water. Stir until combined, let cool, and store in the refrigerator. Should keep for 3-4 weeks. Alternatively, use a 2:1 simple syrup.
