Drink Up: Tom Collingwood

Make no mistake, there is no typo in the title. I know that the traditional gin based cocktail is called a Tom Collins but this one is made with whisky. This  is a riff on the classic and comes from Collingwood Whisky , hence the name Tom Collingwood. And I must say that the swap from gin to whisky is delicious. It’s warmer, it’s smoother. It’s perfection. So here’s how to make one.


  • 2 oz Collingwood Whisky
  • 1.5 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz lemon juice
  • 2 oz soda


  1. Mix Collingwood, simple syrup and lemon juice in a highball glass with ice.
  2. Top with soda water, garnish with a lemon wedge.
  3. Enjoy.
  4. Repeat.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
