Bird in Hand Sazerac

The Bird in Hand Ready to Drink Sazerac captures the classic Sazerac cocktail using Wigle Pennsylvania Straight Rye Whiskey, Absent Minded Absinthe, and Wigle Organic Aromatic Bitters and Organic Rosemary Lavender Bitters.

The name "Bird in Hand" is a reference to Aaron Bird and Thomas Handy, the two men credited with popularizing the Sazerac cocktail. The drink is purported to have been invented by Bird, originally using Sazerac brand Cognac, in the 1850s at the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans.
