Review:

Apple brandy with complex botanical influences from both gin and Chartreuse mellowed by botanically enriched fortified wine. If you like spirit-forward cocktails, then this Yale Fence on monastic steroids takes some beating.

Variant:

Yale Fence

History:

An exhumed classic recommended to us by Jason E. Clapham who says "the war of the name rhymes with bar, at one time as a slang word for working day.

This cocktail notably features in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

WARDAY'S COCKTAIL.
1 Teaspoon Chartreuse.
1/3 Italian Vermouth.
1/3 Dry Gin.
1/3 Calavdos or Apple Brandy.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
