Last month we headed to NOLA Smokehouse & Bar at Barangaroo for our photoshoot. Currently open four days a week – it’s an American Whiskey Bar and French Quarter lounge, with a Smokehouse restaurant. More than half of NOLA is dedicated to a bar that champions some of the best American whiskeys you can find. The 600+ collection on the back bar is constantly changing with limited edition and hard-to-find single bottles being added to the list every week.
“American Whiskey and maple are flavours that were born to be together. Here are two NOLA signatures that utilise our 2:1 Maple to Sugar Syrup.”
Bar Manager Scott Allan was excited to share two of their signature drinks from the list. “American Whiskey and maple are flavours that were born to be together,” he says. “Here are two NOLA signatures that utilise our 2:1 Maple to Sugar Syrup.”
