We asked whiskey sommelier Heather Greene at Manhattan's Flatiron Room to give us her personal take on this classic cocktail. Her version is scientific—using just the right amount of Knob Creek® Rye Whiskey (she prefers it over bourbon for its spice), a healthy stir, and a twist of orange peel.
But while each mixologist and bar has their own take on this "immortal" drink, there is one thing that remains unchanged and critical to the best Old Fashioned: the big, full flavor of Knob Creek® Bourbon.
