This old timer’s whisky cocktail is shorthand for the Whisky Macdonald, so named for a Colonel Hector MacDonald, who first crafted the drink while serving during the British Raj in India. It’s a simple combination of blended scotch and Stone's Original Green Ginger Wine , a fortified wine described on the bottle as a "ginger flavored currant wine" with a 13.5 percent ABV.


  • 1 1/2 oz Blended scotch
  • 1 oz Stone's Original Green Ginger Wine


  1. Pour the ingredients over ice into a rocks glass and stir lightly.
