Not a straight rye, but Jacquin's Rock and Rye is a pretty interesting product. I kept seeing it lurking on the shelf of my local state store and decided to buy a bottle. It's actually really good stuff. I've done some reading online and it seems it historically was rye whiskey that rock candy (and occasionally fruit) was added to to take away some of the bitter/sourness. I had some straight to get the flavor of it by itself and it seems like it would mix perfectly into 7up or would be great to drink straight when you have a cold or flu. Are there any other Rock and Rye fans or am I going to be a loner on this one?
As a side note, any idea who's rye is going into this stuff???
