I thought I'd try some, and there doesn't appear to be much available right now. Just some by Jim Beam, which is hardly the bottom-shelf stuff most hardboiled characters seem to swill by the bucketful. In all the stuff I'm reading now, it's the ultimate working stiff's drink, but now it appears to be something of a curiosity.
