Tasting Notes

The release of Allen Katz's Rock & Rye sets off the re-birth of an American Classic as well as serving as a precursor to their upcoming straight rye whiskey. Made from a base of young rye whiskey distilled on site in Brooklyn, the additions of rock candy, dried cherries, cinnamon, and citrus turn this into one of the most delicious ready-to-drink bottles on the shelf.

Staff Pick Notes

Lucky for us New York Distilling has brought back an incredible version of this forgotten piece of history. Mister Katz's R & R is flat out delicious!

It's such a smooth sip on it's own but at 65 proof, it has enough kick for cocktail mixing! Try it in this delicious cocktail served tall: Me & Her, 11/4oz. R & R, 1oz. Scotch whisky, 3/4oz. lemon juice, 1/2oz. cassis, 1/4oz.Campari, Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top with club soda & garnish with a lemon wedge (Sekend Sun, Astoria NY)
