    Re: Best Ginger Ale for mixing with bourbon

    It's sold in Lexington, when you can find it. Fresh Market usually has it. Remind me and I'll bring some down.

    Re: Best Ginger Ale for mixing with bourbon

    Looks like they need a new web master and update their store locator function as it shows nothing for Kentucky. Now that I notice, they have a place in Illinois on the locator which has been out of business for a couple years. http://www.blenheimgingerale.com/store-locator/

    I like Vernors, but that may be because I was born and raised (and still live) in Michigan.

    Well, that explains a lot. Just look at your signature...wait, look at mine...never mind.

    Vernors is good stuff too.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I second the Blenheim endorsement… red or gold cap, but it's hard to find. My second choice is Fever Tree.

    Same for me. Blenheim is nice (the red cap is quite fiery to me so unless I need my sinuses cleaned I tend to go with the gold cap) but Fever Tree is generally easier to acquire (carried by most decent sized liquor stores) and tends to be my go to brand most of the time.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Agree with Blenheim, and Ale-8-one. My favorites.

    Re: Best Ginger Ale for mixing with bourbon

    Found this thread to really perk my interest because I've never tried anything like this. Since living in the hinterlands of jawga we don't always have everything available to us I thought I'd do a Google search and maybe locate something close by.

    Well after reading all of the reviews the only one that was not mentioned one time was Bienheim. Nohow, nowhere.

    Since the majority of y'all reccomended it I am sure there some sort of conspiracy to keep it away from the masses and now I'm going to be satisfied until I've tried it.

    There is a Fresh Market just north of me that I'll check out Saturday. MrsTT has been bigging me to go there anyway for some freash pastry and jellybellies anyway.
