Haig Club Roberto Roy

3 minute(s) to prepare 1 Easy

First served at a Haig Club dinner in Madrid, Roberto Roy quickly became the most popular guest at the party. The Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Haig Club proved to be the perfect pairing and was too good to be kept a secret. We're excited to share this classic cocktail with a twist for intrepid Scotch Whisky fans now.
The Roberto Roy is an ode to the original Rob Roy cocktail created by a bartender of the Waldorf Astoria in New York City in 1894.
