, | December 8, 2021

On The Rocks Premium Cocktails recently introduced its limited-release offering, The Manhattan, as the brand’s latest pre-mixed crafted cocktail featuring natural ingredients and spirit-based infusions.

The ready-to-serve cocktail brand, said to have been created by master mixologists with award-winning cocktail programs, crafted the cocktail with Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye Whiskey, which features a combination of three distinct liquid profiles starting with Kentucky rye grain, Canadian rye and a touch of California port.

The Manhattan delivers a spicy complexity, perfectly balanced with fruit notes of sweet vermouth topped off with the acidity of bitters, the brand said.
