Serve These Summer-Inspired Antiquity Blue Cocktails At Your Next House Party

antiquity blue cocktails

Antiquity Blue continues to firmly hold its reputation as one of the finest whiskies because of its impeccable quality and rich unparalleled taste, since its inception in 1826 under the vision of Scotsman Robert Stein. The time honoured process from distillation to bottling remains unchanged even now, so that the spirit retains its distinct characteristics of robust oak, smoky undertones, and subtle hints of honey and caramel.

It is this commitment to tradition and dedication to stand out from the crowd that has made Antiquity Blue a favourite among connoisseurs and casual enthusiasts. This is also why The Bar recommends this whisky as the preferred choice for crafting some killer cocktails for your next house party. 

The key to creating cocktails that appeal to a universal palate is to ensure that there is a balance of all flavours. The proportion of the liquor should also be just right, allowing every ingredient to shine without overpowering the other. Here are some cocktail recipes that use Antiquity Blue perfectly:
