Boulevardier

Meet the Boulevardier, a classic whisky drink made The Glenlivet style. Mixing whisky, Campari and sweet vermouth, it's the rich, full-bodied twin of the Negroni. We make ours with sweet, spiced scotch to warm you up on chilly nights.

A classic Boulevardier is garnished with a twist of orange peel. The subtle oils from the zest enhances the bittersweet flavour of the cocktail, giving it a timeless look. If orange isn’t your thing, try swapping for a lemon twist or sweet cherry.

What’s the best Vermouth for a Boulevardier cocktail?

A quality sweet vermouth is the best ingredient for a Boulevardier. It’s an integral part of the drink’s flavour, so pick a liqueur that balances bitterness with fruity sweetness.

The cocktail history of The Boulevardier

We can thank an American writer for the creation of the Boulevardier. The classic cocktail was a signature drink of Erskine Gwynne, the editor of a monthly magazine with the same name. The Boulevardier first appeared in print in Harry’s 1927 bar guide, Barflies and Cocktails. Translating to ‘a wealthy, fashionable socialite’, you could say that Erskine also named the cocktail after himself.
