Tasting Notes

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

Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top with club soda & garnish with a lemon wedge (Sekend Sun, Astoria NY)
