Something a bit different…..Rock & Rye is a whiskey-based liqueur that was more common pre-prohibition, rock candy being used to improve a lesser rye perhaps. From what we’ve read, it was sometimes spiced to improve its palatability,

We liked the name and felt we could work within the Federal classification scheme with our own new & revised rocking interpretation.

We wash & cut the peaches, then shove them into the bung holes of oak barrels that contain our organic rye and then age the spirit.

Then we rack and settle and blend in the minimum amount of organic cane sugar to make it fit the classification. It does rock!

Some drink ideas: Juleps, sours- and spicy take on peaches using Ancho Reyes, a Mexican ancho pepper liqueur.
