How the Whiskey Sour Cocktail Came to Be

In 1962, the Universidad del Cuyo (Argentina) published a story, which cited a Peruvian newspaper called El Comercio de Iquique as indicating that Elliott Stubb was the creator of the “whisky sour”. El Comercio de Iquique was published by Modesto Molina between 1874 and 1879.

The story said that the English steward of a sailing ship named “Sunshine”. In 1872, Elliott Stubb obtained leave to disembark in the port of Iquique, then a Peruvian city, with the aim of settling in the city and opening a bar. In his bar, he experimented with many aperitifs and drinks, of which a fundamental ingredient was the Limon de Pica, a small lime grown in a populated oasis nearby. In order to offer new varieties of alcoholic beverages, the Englishman experimented with many combinations, trying to create pleasant drinks. One day, Stubb mixed whisky with his most valued ingredient, lime, and added a good dose of sugar. Fascinated by the delicious result, he made it the specialty of the house, and dubbed it “sour” for the acidic touch the lime gave it. The new drink spread to social clubs and bars throughout the port of Iquique, and from there it spread through the region and to the United Kingdom.

However, the oldest historical mention of a whisky sour prepared in the world comes from a newspaper “Waukesha Plaindealer” published on January 4th 1870 in Wisconsin, USA.
