No, Ann, I first found it in Chicago, when I was in brewing school. Don't remember any names, but it was fierce, and was available in several places.

    Ann, El Rey markets in Milwaukee carry D & G Jamaican Ginger Beer.
    I don't think I've ever tasted a hotter ginger ale though than Blenheim; even the diet has a sharp burn. Very, very hard to come by.

        Seriously, what is the difference?

            The Georgia Ginger Ale that One-iron gave us was RED ROCK. It was great. it is available at some of the soda specialty on-line stores, but they are pretty expensive (after shipping costs are added in). The Red Rock has a good burn to it !

                I bought a few bottles of Blenheim when visiting a friend in Durham, NC, who took us to A Southern Season, a kind of uppity gourmet market. They were out of the "hot" ginger flavor, otherwise I'd have tried that too. I love the stuff.

                They very occasionally have it at Jungle Jim's, in Fairfield, OH, near Cincinnati.

                  Pechin's and Wal Mart in SWPA both stock Vernor's Ginger Ale.

                            Vernor's is available here (in the middle of nowhere). It has an odd underlying sweet flavor that's fruit punch-ish. I don't think it's at all crisp or dry...and burn is lost on me. That must be a macho man thing.

                            I'll stick with Schweppes Diet Dry Grape.
