Ale-8-One could be described as a ginger ale, but with more caffeine, a fruitier flavor, less carbonation, and about 1/4 fewer calories than conventional soda. Its closely guarded recipe yields an exceptionally clean, authentic beverage that tastes as if it just came from a Depression-era drugstore soda fountain. Known colloquially as Ale-8, this hard-to-find, regional soft drink dates to the 1920s and is bottled by a family-owned enterprise in the small town of Winchester, Kentucky, where the beverage is especially popular.

Some Kentuckians are fond of mixing Ale-8-One with one of the commonwealth’s many bourbons, such as Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey or Buffalo Trace. This concoction has come to be known as “The Kentucky Cocktail” and is a signature drink at multiple Kentucky establishments and Derby Day parties everywhere. Ale-8 is also often mixed with vodka or Seagram’s Seven to produce “Tender Lovin’” and “Kentucky Beer” cocktails, respectively. The unusual Ale-8-One name, pronounced “a late one,” is rumored to have been its creator’s play on words in dubbing it “the latest thing” in beverages at that time, although some suspect the name had more to do with the wee-hours nights this beverage can induce when mixed!

Replaces Pain Pill

Ale 8 One is my drink of choice. I have bad headaches. I was prescribed a pain pill with caffeine for my headaches. Opposed to pain meds I opted to drink my favorite drink - Ale 8 because of its caffeine content. It works ! AND the Ale 8 helps my acid reflux. I love Ale 8! Best of the best!
