A Cobbler is one of the oldest mixed drinks – a pre-Prohibition era cocktail that is open to modern interpretations. It’s an American-born cocktail believed to date back to the 19th century, but crossed the pond early enough to even crop up in the writings of Charles Dickens. In its traditional state a Cobbler is a combination of sherry, sugar and citrus. You can already see what’s lacking. So, into that heady mix we introduce the 12 Year Old Auchentoshan Single Malt.

This Lowland Scotch is matured over 12 years and the resulting spirit offers up the tempting aroma of toasted almonds and caramelised toffee, while guaranteeing the signature smooth delicate Auchentoshan taste. All of this perfectly complements the typical composition of a Cobbler cocktail.

Consider adding Auchentoshan to your own preferred cocktail or see how whisky can bring an added dimension to bartender’s favourite the Cobbler.
