About our Last Word
The creation of this cocktail, which dates back to the Prohibition era, is generally attributed to the Detroit Athletic Club, but it is to Murray Stenson of the Zig Zag Cafe in Seattle that we owe its comeback in 2004. The magic of the Last Word lies in its simplicity: four ingredients, in equal parts, which create perfect harmony.
