This special from Eau de Vie is an Old Fashioned riff that satisfies

Attendees at the Future Spirits Talks: Scotch Whisky during Sydney Bar Week were treated to not only great whisky, but some fantastic cocktails from Eau de Vie Sydney.

If you get to enough bar industry events — as likely many of you do — you may have noticed one great incongruity: despite this being the bar industry, and despite the many skills present in the industry, the drinks at events can be, well, kinda sucky.

So you can picture our satisfaction when we sipped on this banger from the team at Eau de Vie Sydney during the Future Spirits Talks, the first event of Sydney Bar Week. The drink is designed to highlight the whisky, sure, but boy does it pack in the flavour. 

Get a look at the recipe here, check out all the action from Sydney Bar Week the November issue, and pay the team at Eau de Vie a visit the next time you’re in town.

Your palate won’t be disappointed.
