About Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock and Rye Straight Rye Whiskey

Inspired by traditional Rock & Rye recipes, Robert Cooper crafted Hochstadter's Slow and Low Rock & Rye. 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.

Hochstadter's Slow and Low Rock & Rye is made in Philadelphia "the birthplace of Rock & Rye" with a backbone of straight rye whiskey. The whiskey is macerated with orange peels before being infused with a picayune amount of honey. In addition, Cooper adds a hint of horehound — an herbaceous perennial plant often found in lozenges — to his elixir, before each bottle is filled by hand.

Hochstadter's has a mellow, slightly sweet flavor — the notes of spicy rye are nicely balanced with the sweet flavors of citrus, grapefruit and rock candy. Bottled at 84 proof, it has a smooth, long finish with hints of honey and orange.

About Hochstadter's

The origins of rye whiskey in the United States date back to colonial America, when early European settlers brought with them the tradition of distilling excess grains from their farms into whiskey. For over a century, the production of rye whiskey centered around Pennsylvania and Maryland, where large numbers of Scottish and Irish immigrants had settled. The popularity of rye whiskey grew steadily among the colonists, and when the British blockade of American ports during the American Revolutionary War prevented the importation of rum, rye whiskey became America's drink of choice.

Inspired by America's rich rye heritage, Robert Cooper crafted Hochstadter’s Vatted Straight Rye Whiskey. Cooper is a third-generation distiller — his grandfather, Maurice, founded Cooper Brewery in the early 20th century and his father, Sky, worked at a distillery known as Charles Jacquin et Cie.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.


By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
