Cuvée Reserve is a special limited release bottling from Doc Pepe's Lab. Each Cuvée Reserve Barrel is never fully emptied, meaning that each bottle contains traces of every previous batch. The result is a drink with an incredibly rich, full bodied and complex flavor. Cuvée Reserve represents our ultimate expression of classic whiskey cocktails... savor accordingly.
Each bottle is sequentially numbered with the batch, barrel, and bottle information on the front of the bottle, with the final blend being carefully decided by cellar master Christian Pepe.
The Cuvée Reserve Manhattan is made using Rye Whiskey from Kentucky, Italian-style Sweet Vermouth made in-house, and Angostura® bitters, and is recommended to be served stirred with ice and strained into a chilled cocktail glass, garnished with an Amarena cherry or fresh lemon twist.
