Flying Scotsman is a traditional Whisky Cocktail made by blending Whisky, Sweet Vermouth and Bitters. This cocktail was inspired by the historic Flying Scotsman Train, which ran between London and Edinburgh during the late 1800s.
This cocktail was originally made using Single Malt Whisky. However, variants include Scotch or Bourbon as the base spirit. Italian Vermouth and Angostura Bitters are used to make this delicious concoction.
This drink is perfect to serve on a hot day, when you are looking for something strong and refreshing. Sweet Vermouth and Angostura Bitters make this drink sweet and bitter. This cocktail is closely related to the traditional Scottish Cocktail ‘Rob Roy’ and is served at many classic bars around the world.
