Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock and Rye
Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock and Rye is a modern refresh of the original 18th-century spirit. The combination of 84 Proof Straight Rye Whiskey, a pinch of rock candy, several dashes of Angostura bitters, raw honey, navel oranges and raw local honey creates a new kind of Rock & Rye that's perfect for the modern cocktail enthusiast.
We started with our Straigh Rye Whiskey, and added essential flavors of a classic old fashioned cocktail. We did not use any artificial flavorings: only natural ingredients like Rock Candy, raw honey, navel oranges and Angostura Bitters. Slow & Low is the perfect balance of smooth rye whiskey and sweet citrus notes, served cold to capture all the herbal aromatic flavors and at just the right proof for true slow sipping.
Rock & Rye is considered AMerica’s Original Bottled Cocktail and its roots stretch back to the early 1800s when barkeeps in saloons would serve a shot of Rye Whiskey with a small bowl of rock candy. It was even sold at pharmacy counters as a cure-all for coughs, colds, sore throats, bronchitis and hard times. The Hochstadter’s brand and recipe was the most prized during the heyday of Rock & Rye.
The Old Fashioned has been the #1 selling cocktail for 6 years straight. Showing no sign of waning, this classis is picking up pace.
