Downtown Toodeloo

Rock and Rye

Our Playful Spirit

Enjoy a cup of rock and rye
and you’re on your way to feeling alright!

Distillation Process

Downtown Toodeloo Rock and Rye draws upon inspiration from nineteenth century pharmacists and taverners who served this medicinal liquor to treat ailments like the common cold, hay fever or even a case of the blues. As the old saying goes, “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Our High Rye Light Whiskey is the foundation for this playful spirit married with Wisconsin made maple syrup, crystallized honey, cranberries and cosmic elixirs. A half step dance and song later, the honeybees give us wax from their honeycomb to seal the bottles with a hug from us to you. Enjoy a cup of rock and rye and you’re on your way to feeling alright!

Serve With

This rye whiskey is best drank neat or on the rocks. It goes down easy on its own or simply with seltzer water, which will allow you to enjoy all of the flavor from the oranges, lemons, maple syrup and honey.

Our Handcrafted Spirits

This is our promise to be caretakers of this beautiful land. All of our spirits are made from organic ingredients and sourced from local and regional family farmers as much as possible. We work with farmers who are growing open-pollinated crops which support pollinator habitat and healthy soil as well as a healthy environment for us all. These heirloom and open-pollinated crops also produce deeper and richer flavor profiles. You will taste the difference.
