WHY WE THINK IT WORKS...
A simple two ingredient serve that can be easily made at home. Cream Soda herl's the vanilla flavours imparted from bourbon casks and draws out the maleted barley notes. Fresh lemon cuts through to give a citrus 'pop' on the nose. Appeals to sweeter palate - perfect for those new to single malts.
History of Cream Soda
Cream Soda has been enjoyed for over a century, with the oldest known reference dating back to 1852. However the recipe, found in Vol. 10 of the Michigan Farmer, was quite different from the drink we know today and called for cream of tartar, epsom salts, sugar, egg, and milk to be mixed. Over the years, Cream Soda has evolved and become a popular mixer for cocktails, especially whisky based tipples. Its sweet, creamy flavour profile perfectly complements the vanilla and citrus notes found in Speyburn Bradan Orach whisky, creating a delicious and refreshing drink that's perfect for any occasion.
