Handy & Schiller Barreled Manhattan - Handy, originally from Maryland, worked for Schiller at the Sazerac Coffeehouse, and later went on to establish an importing and wholesale liquor business. With the launch of Handy & Schiller Barreled Cocktails comes two signature cocktails: the Handy & Schiller Barreled Old Fashioned, and the Handy & Schiller Barreled Manhattan. Both were crafted and aged at Buffalo Trace Distillery.
The Handy & Schiller Manhattan, 70 proof, is also made using Sazerac Rye Whiskey, vermouth and Peychaud’s Bitters, and is aged in Sazerac Rye barrels.
Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey - Tasting Notes: Lemon zest and citrus strike the nose first but are followed up by the tell-tale rye black pepper burst. Loads of caramel, canned peaches, and cloves follow quickly. Production: aged in NEW, CHARRED AMERICAN OAK at least 2 years.
