Their Small Batch Tonic is essentially a quinine concentrate. It’s designed to pair with your favorite Gin or Vodka, and is then stretched with soda water to make a bright, light, refreshing highball.
With a backbone of quinine, culled from the Cinchona Tree, they’ve added a delicate mix of botanicals, and then sweetened it with real cane sugar; the final product is a complex mixture that introduces a fine bitterness to any cocktail, and a great pairing with the botanicals of the finest Gins in the world.
Jack Rudy starts with pomegranate juice from a small family farm in Madera, CA; they juice their fruit whole in a patented press that renders a matchless, robust pomegranate juice. To that they add cane sugar and orange flower water, and apply enough heat to dissolve the sugar while still maintaining the inherent zip of the fresh juice.
Jack Rudy Small Batch Grenadine is rich and full-flavored up front, and then gives way to a bright, almost tropical finish that lifts a drinks profile; use it to create new cocktails, or to revisit classic drinks like a Ward 8, Jack Rose, El Presidente, or Monkey Gland
Jack Rudy Aromatic Bitters are a standard, approachable, and highly versatile aromatic bitters for any cocktail enthusiast. They formulated these bitters in collaboration with Cocktail Punk in Boulder, Colorado.
With burnt cane sugar syrup as a base, they built in complex and nuanced notes of citrus, winter spices, and bittering agents to create a product with many uses.Use it to revisit your favorite classic cocktails like the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned.
To cure a vicious hangover, simply add several generous drops to soda water or ginger ale and drink up.
When updating the cocktail cherry Jack Rudy looked to Kentucky roots for inspiration, combining Bourbon from our home state with Oregon cherries. The result is the ideal companion to any number of drinks, most notably those made with whiskey. You might find them good enough to eat straight from the jar; a gentle buzz may not be far behind
