Club Warwick’s take on an ‘Old Fashioned’ with Uitkyk Pot Still 10 Year Old Grand Reserve Brandy.

Traditionally prepared with bourbon, the Uitkyk Pot Still 10 Year Old Grand Reserve Brandy is a smooth, rich and new-glam outlook on an old favourite. We combine it with another aperitif to make it extra delicious and special. Prepared as a tall cocktail, or an after-dinner sip, this version is sure to become a have-to-have drink this winter.
