Salon 39 Old Fashioned

Salon 39 Old Fashioned

On the rocks and no bull shit!

A classic old fashioned serve is perfect for a good base product. You only have to dilute with ice, spice up with aromatic bitters and sweeten with a bit of sugar. Nothing more is needed.

They understand this at Salon 39. They have a nice selection of American bourbon and an old fashioned is the perfect vehicle for trying them out the form of a cocktail. The house serve is made with Elaijah Craigh:

Salon 39 Old Fashioned

5 cl bourbon – Elaijah Craigh 12
5 ml cane sugar syrup, 2:1
3 dash angostura

Stirred 5-10 seconds. Finished off with zest of a lemon and garnished with a cherry. Served a bit too strong so  it hits “really good” as you start to drink it.


The whiskey old fashioned is an iconic classic cocktail. All truly good cocktail bars make it well.

It has been a stable on the menu at Salon 39 since the bar opened back in 2007. The staff take pride in serving an impeccable old fashioned and the regulars won’t have it any other way.

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
