As it would happen, bourbon is not only the delicious drink that is created in Kentucky.
Ale-8-One is a “soft drink” (which I think is a Kentucky word for “pop”) that is found in distinctive green bottles. I’m always on the search for a good ginger ale, and I think Kentucky has produced a winner:
“Still a closely guarded family secret, the Ale-8-One formula was developed by G.L. Wainscott in the 1920’s after experimentation with ginger-blended recipes he acquired during extensive travels in Northern Europe. He sponsored one of America’s first “name the product” contests, and “A Late One” was the winning entry. The drink’s logo, Ale-8-One, was adopted as a pun of its description as the latest thing in soft drinks.” Source www.ale-8-one.com
There is also 37 mg of caffeine in each bottle, which is slightly more than Coke. Oh, and it mixes really well with whiskey (finally the perfect way to get rid of all that Templeton Rye I have stored up).
