This Elderflower Tonic Syrup, by Jack Rudy, is an updated tonic formula with more body and a bold finish that pairs well with a number of richer spirits: tequila, bourbon and rum, while still acting a classic companion to finer gins. Because elderberry trees grow wildly throughout Kentucky, the company thinks this tree's flowers should be a natural ingredient to their line of mixers. They added organic dried elderflowers to their original recipe (Jack Rudy Tonic Syrup), and increased the amount of quinine to balance the final product. The Elderflower Tonic has a profile that allows Gin and Tonic drinking in deepest winter, but also proofs its versatility in a number of different applications.
The company was named after the two founders' great-grandfather, Jack Rudy. His story is entirely true and on the side of their bottle :“Jack Rudy was many things. He was a pilot who illegally ﬂew his plane under the Ohio River Bridge (on a dare), an inventor who created a mechanical device for pharmacists to count pills, and a craftsman who once built a houseboat out of an old city bus. After serving as an aircraft mechanic in WWII, he spent his working life as an engineer. He read Popular Mechanics and National Geographic cover to cover - a curious type who made his own bullets, and shot them into a dirt wall he constructed in his basement. In addition to being a ‘marvelous’ dancer, he LOVED to entertain and was known to overindulge in drink, smoke, and his wife’s gourmet cooking."
