The Tale of the Toe

Apr 14, 2020 | Whiskey @ Work

Served up at the Downtown Hotel’s Sourdough Saloon in Dawson City, Canada, the cocktail is connected to a legend that dates back to the 1920s about bootlegging brothers who placed one of their frostbitten toes in moonshine as a memen-toe. In 1973, the preserved toe was discovered and the Sourtoe Cocktail Club was born.

“You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow. But your lips must touch that gnarly toe”. The legend of the Sourtoe Cocktail.
