Thanks to Dewar & Sons, we’re able to offer you these two craft cocktail recipes featuring Dewar’s Whiskies. 

Whisky Emporium
The Dewars Dramble


1.5 oz. DEWAR’S 12 Blended Scotch Whisky

.75 oz. Lemon juice

.50 oz. Simple syrup

.25 oz. Crème du Mure

Blackberry garnish


Add all ingredients (minus crème de mure) to the glass. Fill with crushed ice and stir. Top with more crushed ice and then drizzle crème du mure on top. Garnish with a fresh blackberry.



Whiskey Emporium
The Penicillin. I feel better just looking at it!


1.5 oz. DEWAR’S 12 Blended Scotch Whisky

.75 oz. Lemon juice

.75 oz. Honey syrup

3 slices fresh ginger

Candied ginger garnish


Using a wooden muddler, muddle the fresh ginger in the bottom of a cocktail shaker until it is well mashed. Add the blended Scotch, lemon juice, and honey syrup, and fill shaker with ice. Shake until well chilled (about 20 seconds). Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass (you may wish to double strain through a fine tea strainer to remove the small flecks of ginger), and spray the Islay Scotch over the top.
