How this historically relevant drink had flown under my nose is a mystery to me, but allow me to sum it up before I get into the product at hand. An early barroom staple of pre-prohibition America, a small dish of rock candy was supposedly kept on hand to render lightly aged, swill-esque rye whiskey more palatable. In the post-prohibition era, the drink managed to survive in the cultural consciousness by making a jump to the medicinal shelf, where rye and sugar, possibly with other spices, were bottled and sold by pharmacists to cure what ails ya. Enter Cooper Spirits Co. Sold in a full ml bottle instead of the small, single-serving cans, this version is clearly presenting itself as the premium product.
No ailment great or small was immune to rock and rye's therapeutic might. Cooper is a third-generation distiller. His grandfather, Maurice, founded Cooper Brewery in the early 20th century and his father, Sky, worked at Charles Jacquin et Cie, a distillery in Pennsylvania. Whiskey: Yelawolf Creek Water American Whiskey distilled from a bourbon mash and finished with toasted wood chips. Clean and natural tasting with a subtle sweetness and bold defiance.
