To add to your experience, we’ve crafted a signature “landmark” TO cocktail that you can make and enjoy at home. 

The collaboration between the Toronto Public Library and the CN Tower describes the history of Toronto in 114 Stories. I wanted to honour Gooderham & Worts and their legacy in our city. The Distillery District is an exciting home for art and culture, while the former headquarters at the Flatiron Building is a landmark of the city. A picture taken 1000’s of times is this iconic building and the CN Tower rising up behind it. The story of the distillery is the story of Toronto, immigrants and industry, arts and culture.  We decided on a classic cocktail with a twist. Gooderham & Worts Whisky is a perfect balance of richness without being overpowering. Instead of using a sugar cube, we opted for maple syrup to provide the sweetness and a touch of Canadiana.

Gooderham & Worts Maple Old Fashioned
2.00 ounces Gooderham & Worts Whiskey
2.00 dashes of Angostura
0.50 ounces Maple Syrup

Combine ingredients in a shaker and stir to dilute. Place fresh ice in a rocks glass. Pour drink over ice and add an orange twist.
