Sugar kelp old fashion

Fill We use Wrecking Coast rye Whiskey in our old fashion, sourced from the north Cornish coast. Not only is it British coastal it’s also the perfect smooth whiskey aged in a sherry barrel for a unique old fashion.


50ml Wrecking Coast rye whiskey

10ml sugar kelp syrup

3 dash bitters

1 orange peel


First up you need to create the sugar kelp syrup, this isn’t available to buy off the shelf in any shops, we use Sugar Kelp from Câr-y-Môr alongside white granular sugar and water, here’s how:

In a small saucepan over medium heat, add cup of sugar and same quantity of water, stir until completely dissolved.

Bring it to the boil then simmer for a few minutes to reduce the water content down, remove from the heat. Add a table spoon of dried sugar kelp and leave to steep.Taste every 15 minutes until the desired flavour is reached as it gets intense over time, this is personal preference, but the sugar kelp should give you a mineral flavour with a touch of salt (Unami flavour). Fine strain into a swing top glass bottle and keep in the fridge. The solid residue can also be dehydrated and used as garnish. 


Now it’s time to build the cocktail. Take a mixing glass add the sugar kelp and bitters stir, then fill the mixing glass with ice. Next add the whiskey and stir until it’s fully chilled. Strain into a rocks glass that is filled with large ice cubes. Squeeze the oil of an orange twist over the glass, then drop into the glass to garnish.
