Master The Classics: Rob Roy



The Rob Roy is a Scotch Manhattan. Period. It was created in 1895 at the Waldorf Hotel (now known as the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel) by a bartender who’s name is lost to time. Around the corner from the hotel was a theater debuting an operetta based on the real life Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor. The play was a collaboration between two famous lyricists of the time, Harry B. Smith and Reginald De Koven. The bar used the drink as a way to publicize the play.
