In 1892 while out with friends in New York, Tommy Dewar ordered a 'ball' (the traditional term for a glass of whisky) of DEWAR'S. When the glass of whisky was presented to him, Tommy decided to ask for his whisky to be served in a tall glass, along with soda and ice - and so the 'Original Highball' was born, and became the perfect drink to enhance the smoothness of our whisky.

The important thing to remember about the Old Fashioned is that 'Old' is a relative term. Like, relative to the late 1800s old. The Old Fashioned is old enough that it was once considered a medicinal tonic. But it was always an alternative for people who didn't enjoy their spirits straight.
