Tattersall Distilling of Minneapolis announced today that its bottled Manhattan and Old Fashioned will now be available as cocktail shorties. Unlike most single-serve, pre-mixed cocktails on the market, Tattersall has opted for 100-mL glass bottle packaging and uses its own house-made spirits. This marks the first time any Tattersall product will be available in this format.
“We launched our shorties with two of our most popular rye cocktails, and the response so far has exceeded expectations,” says Dan Oskey, founder and chief operator of Tattersall Distilling. “As demand continues to grow for craft cocktails beyond the bar, these let individuals experience a taste of Tattersall in a way that’s accessible and a bit more elevated than some of the canned cocktails on the market.”
The Manhattan, launched earlier this fall, starts with Tattersall’s Straight Rye Whiskey, made from 100% Minnesota grown rye and aged in charred American white oak barrels. It’s blended with Tattersall Italiano-Style Liqueur, sherry and aromatic bitters. The cocktail highlights the smooth, subtle spice backbone of their Rye Whiskey, complemented by sherry and their house made liqueur and bitters.
Perfected in the distillery’s cocktail room over the past five years, the bottled Old Fashioned features Tattersall’s signature Rye whiskey as well. It’s then blended with Tattersall Sour Cherry Liqueur, aromatic bitters, a dash of orange zest and sugar. With an aroma of citrus and baking spices, Tattersall Old Fashioned makes for a perfectly balanced cocktail.
At 70 proof, both of Tattersall’s shorties are shelf-stable, but best served chilled over ice. Suggested retail price is $5.99 per 100ml bottle.

Plans for additional Tattersall shorties are in the works for the coming months, featuring both pre-mixed cocktails and individual spirits and liqueurs.
