Kentucky’s second best drink, and the only one appropriate for teetotalers, is “A Late One.” Ale8one has been bottled in Winchester, Kentucky since 1926. Inspired by the ginger driven beverages of Northern Europe, Ale8one was developed by G.L. Wainscott and remains a “closely guarded family secret.”

Along with the original, the company also offers a diet version and a complete line of other foodstuffs – bbq sauce, suckers, etc.

Should you wish to visit the factory, they will happily swing you through at 10:50am on Fridays given some advanced notice.
