Looking for something hot to wash down your Bhut Jolokia filled omelet or Red Savina salsa and chips? Then look no further than Blenheim Ginger Ale, which makes the spiciest ginger ale in South Carolina (and perhaps America).
Made in two fiery varieties named Hot and Not-As-Hot, the company also makes milder versions (including a diet one). But it is the two hotter varieties that everyone who’s tasted them remembers if not fondly, than vividly.
As it says in a recent article about Blenheim Ginger Ale on SCIway.net:
“Innocuous packaging and the words ginger ale do nothing to warn the unsuspecting of Blenheim’s fiery kick. Concocted from a secret blend of spices, this South Carolina icon is one that will both quench your thirst and set your mouth ablaze.”
If you’d like to try Blenheim Ginger Ale, which was first bottled in 1903, there’s some great info (as well as some personal anecdotes about what the hotter varieties taste like) here, before you take the plunge.
