Review: Uncle Bobs Root Beer Whiskey

Uncle Bobs Root Beer Flavored Whiskey - CopyUncle Bobs Root Beer Whiskey is made in Mira Loma California by the 49 Distilling and Whiskey House, a division of private label distiller and bottler Levecke.  It was released in 2014, so I really can’t say it was developed to capitalize on the Hard Root Beer craze.  This is the second root beer flavored whiskey I’m aware of.  The other is Jeremiah Weed Sarsaparilla Whiskey.  Uncle Bob’s blends aged whiskey with natural root beer flavors and caramel color and is bottled at 70 proof.  Read more »
