Calamintha is a hardy herb native to Italy where it is both cultivated and grows wild. It is used, there, to flavor meat dishes and savory sauces and marinades. Here we use it to flavor the syrup we will use in our Calamintha Old Fashioned. The rich complexity and spiciness of the rye or bourbon pairs perfectly with the minty/oregano/peppercorn notes in the syrup.

If you have difficulty getting your hands on some Calamintha, substitute our Oregano-Mint Simple Syrup. Cheers!
