Hoschstadter's Slow & Low Rock and Rye is a perfect blend of straight rye whisky distilled with air-dried naval oranges, 100% raw Pennsylvania honey, angostura-style cocktail bitters, and a pinch of rock candy. This 84 proof whisky has been served in saloons and pharmacies since the 1800's. The original rye whisky served back in the day was un-aged, making it harsh to drink straight. Hochstadter's added rock candy to their brew to make a more enjoyable drink. Slow & Low Rock and Rye is still brewed with the same integrity and care making for a premium drink that can be downed straight up, without mixing.
