This Father’s Day (see our cool gift guide here), make your dad a special drink and put a spin on the Old Fashioned classic cocktail with DeLeón Tequila. Featuring the rich, oaky flavor of DeLeón’s Reposado, the DeLeón Old Fashioned takes the standards of the Old Fashioned category to the next level. In this cocktail, the warm cinnamon notes and vanilla finish of the oak-aged Reposado are enhanced with smoke from the addition of mescal, sweetness from tequila’s native agave, and space from Angostura bitters for a Mexican twist on this traditional cocktail. A bottle of DeLeón Tequila will show Dad exactly how much he means to you as you help take him to a new standard of luxury with this rich and complex spirit.
