Sips: Leopold Bros. Classic Old Fashioned

A drink recipe made with the spirits from our Colorado Liquor Cabinet.


The Leopold Bros. Maryland-Style Rye is one of the most coveted bottles in the February issue’s Colorado Liquor Cabinet, as it was last released in limited quantities in November. However, the brothers are set to open a new production facility, which means easier access to their classic Old Fashioned.

You’ll Need:


2 ounces Leopold Bros. American Small Batch Whiskey (or Maryland-Style Rye)

1 sugar cube

2 dashes Angostura bitters

1 large orange peel




Gently muddle sugar cube, a splash of water, bitters, and orange peel in an old fashioned glass. Add whiskey and a few large ice cubes, then stir.
