Bacon Vodka Redux.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:17 pm

baconA bit more than a year ago, I wrote about my plans to make my own bacon vodka. As often is the case, Life 101 intervened and nudged bacon-vodka-making close to the bottom of the list of “to do’s,” where it remains to this day.

That is why I was more than a bit intrigued when Cousin Jack asked in a comment to this post, whether I had tried commercially made bacon vodka. It is called “Bakon Vodka,” and it promises “No tinge or burn on the tongue, no obnoxious smoky or chemical flavors, just a clean refreshing potato vodka with delicious savory bacon flavor.”

What’s not to like about that?

Apparently the stuff is currently sold in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, and it is apparently selling very well in Oregon and Washington. I submitted my name to the Bakon Vodka peeps on their website so they can notify me if and when it becomes available in the Garden State. In the meantime, I expect a report from you peeps who drop by here from those states where the stuff is available.

Consider it your contribution to science.

  1. Damn! Damn! Damn!

    I just got back from a road trip to Eugene where my son got wed. If I had only known about this Bakon Vodka I could have bought you a case. (For a reasonable mark-up of course.)

  2. joated,

    Congrats to your son and his bride.

    No worries, as I figure you’ll be visiting them one of these days. :-)

  3. Jimbo–

    Being a Montana resident, I consider it my sworn duty to QA this product for you.

    Even though I may catch a buzz and end up hung over. I will carry on this duty as I must because I owe it to you.

    My liquor store will help me out, I’m sure.

  4. Craig needs to load up the car with a few cases and head east I think.

  6. Craig,

    You are a real Mensch, but after viewing the positively riveting video made by those two madcap oenophiles who own your liquor store (which appeared to consist of more empty floor space than liquor), I’m not sure how much help they would be.

    Still, if you manage to score a case and bring it to the Garden State, we could do a Taylor Ham, egg and cheese on a hard roll and wash it down with iced bacon vodka — a Breakfast of Champions.

  7. Jimbo – I would need to come take pictures of that event. Yes, it would certainly need documentation. ROFLMAO.

  8. Interesting.

    I keep imagining them mixing bacon grease in with perfectly good vodka.
