BLA Old Fashioned

Justin Park
Bar Leather Apron

According to Bar Leather Apron owner Justin Park, the bourbon used for this drink was made specifically to create an Old Fashioned. It was hand-selected by Justin and Bar Leather Apron’s co-owner Tom Park (no relation) for the Leather Soul brand. According to Justin, an Old Fashioned is a good introduction into cocktails, and when made correctly, it is one of the best to have.

Bar Leather Apron, which opened earlier this month, is designed as a collection of different concepts that Justin has experienced throughout the world during his bartending career. He felt that Hawaii was missing out on the idea of having a refi ned cocktail experience — and Bar Leather Apron, he says, offers exactly that.
