Breakfast Old Fashioned

Created for Hattiers 

by The Glassmates,

Nigel, Jimmy and Ortis


The trio at The Glassmates have a very special place in the heart of all at Hattiers. Our founder Philip met the chaps during the spring/summer of 2020, during their weekly broadcasts. Their breadth of knowledge and approachable pallets across multiple spirits is refreshing. 

Jimmy, Nigel & Ortis have spent a lot of drinking time together, asking each other pressing questions of universe-spanning importance such as, “hey, what’s in your glass?”; “oi, what’s that you’re drinking?”, and; “have you tried this hard-to-pronounce Scotch?”. They came to find that their love of finding and enjoying the best-tasting alcoholic drinks that London bars had to offer, in the form of drams, straight pours and cocktails, was something that others were interested in.

“It’s not about what’s in your pocket, it’s about what’s in your glass” – Glassmates

(Philip and The Glassmates went on their first date only recently over Rum Fest week, it went well and much rum was had).
