Hochstadter’s Slow & Low Rock and Rye Four Mini Cans 4 x 100ML Hard to find! Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock and Rye 42% ABV 84 Proof is made by macerating six year old straight rye whiskey with lemon, grapefruit, and orange peels, rock candy, honey, and horehound. The bright citrus of Slow & Low leaps out in the nose with the orange and lemon leading the pack. This citrus is well integrated with the rye note which reads both as spicy and slightly floral. The horehound gives the nose a subtle earthiness which helps bring all the other elements together. The entry is a lot less sweet and and a lot more spicy than we expected from a Rock and Rye Dating back to the late 1800s, Rock and Rye was a traditional American saloon staple where rock candy or syrup was added to rye whiskey to help take the edge off, with fruit and spices added. Rock and Rye closely mirrors the Old Fashioned Cocktail which had emerged in the early 1800s and brought together sugar, water, spirit, and bitters into a morning time tipple. The Rock and Rye cocktail managed to make its way through Prohibition, often being used medicinally and then formally re-emerged in the Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930 with Harry Craddock's own take on the drink. Rock and Rye isn't a brand of drink, its a category of cocktail, and bartenders often put their own stamp on the drink. Ultimately, many of these variation got bottled and sold.
