Raising an eyebrow in bartender’s manuals that date back as far as 1890, the term ‘Highball’ is not referring to signals you may find on a railway line - nor anyone ‘highballing it’ out of here – but the simple yet famed concoction of ice, spirit and carbonated mixer stirred in a tall glass to be consumed for pleasure and refreshment.

Nowadays, everything from the quality of ice and type of glass used are all taken in to consideration to create that one tall drink that we all have grown to cherish so much. From Whisky and soda, to Cognac and tonic and the classic rum and coke - we all have our favourites.

We’d like to explore just what makes these drinks so attractive, and discover what popular mixes with a twist are really stirring things up this summertime. It’s with all this in mind that we invite you to our next exploration and open house tasting to do just that – The Perfect Highball.
