Step 1: Put four top bartenders from around the world in a room for four days. Step 2: Give them free rein to create a new cocktail program, no holds barred. Step 3: Open the door to find they’ve recreated the world’s first-recorded cocktail? Doubling down on the classics, bartenders from four Fairmont hotels – Grant Sceney of Fairmont Pacific Rim, Nader Chabaane of Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac, Erik Lorincz of The Savoy and Tom Hogan of Fairmont Singapore – made 95 attempts at the old fashioned before settling on the recipe that would become the Fairmont Old Fashioned, one of six “revived” classic cocktails on the menu Fairmont bills “Classics. Perfected.” These highly dignified sippers featuring top-shelf spirits (think Woodford Reserve Distillers Select bourbon and Remy Martin VSOP Fine Champagne cognac) are now being poured at Fairmont hotels worldwide, including après spots at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, Fairmont Tremblant and Fairmont Chateau Whistler. – C.
