What's this?

Serious whiskey drinkers know that a complex and flavorful Old Fashioned starts with rye. What’s more surprising is how well the light floral and citrus notes of Redemption Rye are complemented by a bitter espresso flavor. Experience it for yourself with the Espresso Old Fashioned.


  • 2 oz Redemption rye whiskey
  • 2 oz Espresso or cold-brew coffee
  • 1/4 oz Simple syrup
  • 1 dash Peychaud's bitters
  • 1 dash Absinthe, to rinse
  • Garnish: Lemon twist


  1. Rinse an Old Fashioned glass with the absinthe and set aside.

  2. Add remaining ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir.

  3. Strain into the prepared glass over ice.

  4. Express the oil from a lemon twist and drop in as a garnish.
