Ageing Tastefully: Four Seasons Celebrates Barrel-Aged Cocktails Featuring Bulleit Bourbon
The Cocktail Quarterly series devotes attention to one cocktail trend, technique or seasonal ingredient each quarter. Participating
Inspired by the locale and the season, here is a sample of the unique cocktails on offer:
- Whiskey Gulch at
Four SeasonsHotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto: Playing off the one-time moniker of the land nearby, this beautifully blended cocktail, with its classic fall flavours of torched orange and cinnamon, is reminiscent of a grittier time in American history, mirroring the bygone days of Whiskey Gulch in East Palo Alto.
- Bulleit & Sand at
Four SeasonsHotel Austin: With its bold red colour, fragrant citrus aroma and a sizzling spark as its orange peel garnish is ignited by the bartender, the Bulleit & Sand is the perfect antidote to the chilly autumn season.
- Alpine Old Fashioned at
Four SeasonsResort and Residences Jackson Hole: Friends and family gathering around the fire, snow covered mountains, coming off the slopes wind-bitten and cold, and ready for this warming drink: the winter holiday nostalgia-inspired Alpine Old Fashioned. Bulleit Bourbon is infused with rosemary and barrel aged for four to six weeks, allowing the aromas of peppermint and pine to complement the hints of chocolate and orange.
- Bulleit Apple Pie at
Four SeasonsHotel New York: This tasty concoction is inspired by the classic ingredients of fall in NYC: apples, cinnamon and nutmeg, which pair wonderfully with brown spirits. The barrel ageing process not only softens harsh edges, but also adds layers of flavour and complexity to the drink.
