I love the backstory on this. Reimagine the story about Santa and his elves. Instead of the poor little elves slaving away making toys, they fought against capitalism! Nights leading up to Christmas, they’d take products from big corporations, load up the sleigh and then give their plunder to all the good boys and girls.
After taking a little bit of things for themselves, like a true pirate, this would be something they’d drink. Mixing up something with whatever they had taken.
Created by Brian Maxwell, this is tasty blend of scotch, aged rhum and a fall spice kick.

The whip shake is among the more uncommon shaking techniques, one that few bartenders outside of New York City use or even are aware of. It's simple: Add just one or two small ice cubes or a few pieces of pebble ice to your shaker with the liquid ingredients and shake to full dilution (until the ice is gone). It results in a cocktail that’s chilled, diluted and more frothy than with an ordinary shake because there’s more air in the less-filled tins. - Source: Liquor.com
