Back to Basics with this Havana Club Old Fashioned

With its rich and clear mahogany colour, richer in colour means a more intense flavour, Havana Club is ideally suited to drink simply over ice or with a twist of orange peel or lime. If you’re living on the edge check out our Old Fashioned rendition below; 

Rum Oldfashioned

This cocktail classic offers depth of flavour with a dark twist and only deep-aged Cuban rum will do for this variation of this favourite.


50 ml Havana 7

2 dashes of The Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters

1 teaspoon sugar

1 Twist of orange peel

3 ice cubes 


In a lowball glass dissolve the sugar and the bitters in the Havana 7.

Fill the glass with ice and stir to dilute the ice for 30 seconds.

Garnish with a twist of orange peel.
