We don’t need an excuse to spend the day drinking whisky. Whether you’re looking for something sweet or a twist on a classic, we’ve got you covered.

Here are 2 cocktail recipes to help you celebrate world whisky day
Nanaimo Bar Shaft
Add a little bit of sweetness to World Whisky Day this year with this delicious cocktail. On top of the sweetness this drink offers, is a kick of caffeine! Whisky and coffee? We think yes.
- 1 oz | Forty Creek Double Barrel
- ½ oz | Frangelico
- Top with coffee
- Drizzle ¾ oz of Nanaimo Bar Cream
- Use an old-fashion or rocks glass and build over ice
Forager & Tonic
Looking to elevate your traditional Gin and Tonic? This is the cocktail for you. By putting a spin on the classic G&T with an addition of botanical whisky, this cocktail is sure to wow your taste buds. The lemon garnish ties this cocktail together. We recommend sipping this bad boy on a nice sunny day…or any day really, it’s just that good.
- 1oz | The Forager Botanical Whisky
- 3oz | Tonic
- Lemon garnish
- Build in a tall glass, over ice and garnish with a slice of lemon
