NORWALK, Conn., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- STUDEBAKER™ is proud to announce a premium and new-to-world product line of bottled whisky cocktails including STUDEBAKER™ Old Fashioned and STUDEBAKER™ Manhattan, replicating a unique and extraordinary taste of cocktail history for a new generation.
During the days of Prohibition (1919-1933), Canadian Whisky boomed in the United States, as whisky that had been legally distilled north of the border made its way to the millions of thirsty Americans hiding out in speakeasies across the country. Bartenders looking for quality spirits quickly became fond of the dynamically rich taste of Canadian Whisky, and adopted it for classic whisky cocktails, like the Old Fashioned and Manhattan. The current whiskey boom has led to a resurgence of these iconic drinks that consumers have once again adopted as contemporary favorites.
Inspired by the Prohibition classics, STUDEBAKER™ uses the finest Canadian Whisky, masterfully blended and finished with select premium ingredients. Sip a STUDEBAKER™ Manhattan, perfected with sweet vermouth and a touch of bitters, garnished with a maraschino cherry. Enjoy a STUDEBAKER™ Old Fashioned, exquisitely blended with cherry, orange, and a touch of bitters, garnished with a simple orange peel.
Whether hosting friends or cheering on your favorite team, STUDEBAKER™ takes the guesswork and preparation out of developing these classic cocktails, allowing consumers to enjoy the perfect cocktail on any occasion. With STUDEBAKER™ Old Fashioned and STUDEBAKER™ Manhattan, an expertly crafted whisky cocktail is just a pour away.
Whichever STUDEBAKER™ you choose, please enjoy the expertly-crafted taste responsibly.
