Switchgrass Spirits Copperhead Rock & RyeRock and Rye is a bottled cocktail with a bite! This delightful drink was made popular during prohibition when doctors would “prescribe” this supposedly medicinal spirit for patients suffering from coughs. it gets its name from its two main ingredients: rye whiskey and rock candy. We distill our own sweet mashed rye whiskey and combine it with Belgian rock candy, real citrus peel, horehound, and spices to create Copperhead’s unique taste. Copperhead can be enjoyed as a shot, on the rocks, or as a cocktail with your favorite seltzer.40% ABVSwitchgrass Spirits is a proudly Midwestern, worker-owned company that manufactures high quality Whiskey and Brandy.
