The best whisky for a Bloody Mary

There’s no rules when it comes to cocktail making. If you wanna use a whisky, use it. But if we’re choosing, then scotch is the way to go. The complex flavour profile of single malt scotch match the richness of a Bloody Mary mix. Sweet and spicy, fruity and acidic, smoky and fresh. It’s the perfect combo.

What is a Bloody Mary with whisky called?

The Bloody Molly, the Bloody Derby, the Bloody Joseph. There’s more than one name for a Bloody Mary with whisky. We call ours the Brooklyn Mary, named after the roots of the Wu-Tang Clan’s legendary members.

 

Mix things up: the Bloody Mary Whisky Sour

Great things happen when two legends collide. And this cocktail mashup is no different. Add a portion of Bloody Mary mix to a classic Whisky Sour recipe and you’ve got yourself a remix worth shouting about. The fruity tomato base and lemon balance each other out. Whilst the sweet tones of scotch keep each sip extra smooth.
