Southern Manhattan

Phillip Oakley

As a way to say thank you to our partners, Common Giant conceived an ambitious plan: to create their own signature mixed drink. By combining bourbon and vermouth aged in the Common Giant offices, the mixture was dubbed “The Southern Manhattan.” The name was visualized after discovering the Common Giant office conducts business in the city of “The Original Empire State Building.” The research proved to make a great story and all of our partners enjoyed the gift. We’re asked repeatedly if “The Southern Manhattan” will ever see production again or if it’s purchasable through third party channels. Our official response to this question: “Never say never.”
