It’s no secret that rye whiskey makes one of the best Manhattan’s around. But when it comes to Minor Case Rye, you couldn’t ask for a better match.

Why? Because it’s sherry-cask finished, giving it a fruit-forward, soft richness that makes Minor Case an ideal pairing for vermouth when mixing a classic cocktail like a Manhattan.

Here are three recipes to get you started:

White Manhattan
2 ounces Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey
.75 ounce elderflower liqueur
.75 ounce dry vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Orange twist for garnish

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir and then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

 

Minor Rye Maple Manhattan
2 ounces Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey
1 ounce sweet vermouth
.5 ounce Luxardo cherry juice
2 dashes maple bitters
Orange twist for garnish

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir and then strain into a lowball glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange twist.

 

Tawny Rye-hattan
2 ounces Minor Case Straight Rye Whiskey
1 ounce tawny port
.5 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Orange twist for garnish

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir and then strain into a lowball glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
