NATHAN's REVIEW--

CAPROCK VODKA IS DISTILLED BY PEAK SPIRITS IN HOTCHKISS, COLORADO USING WASTE FROM THE CAPROCK FORMATION AT GRAND MESA AND ORGANIC GRAINS AND GRAPES FROM THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE COLORADO ROCKIES. CAPROCK VODKA IS SLIGHTLY SWEET AND VERY SMOOTH, IMPRESSIVE, CLEAN AND GREAT AS A CHILLED SHOT WHICH IS THE TRADITIONAL WAY TO CONSUME VODKA, OR TRY IT IN YOUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL!

LARCENY KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON

AS AN U.S. TREASURY AGENT, JOHN FITZGERALD HAD THE ONLY SET OF KEYS TO THE RICKHOUSES FULL OF ILLEGAL WHISKEY BARRELS STORED THERE. JOHN ALSO HAD A PROPENSITY TO AQUIRE A PORTION FROM ONLY THE BEST BARRELS HE WAS GUARDING TO MAKE HIS OWN “BLEND”. THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE LARCENY USE THAT SAME TECHNIQUE, ONLY THEY USE THEIR OWN WHISKEY! WITH A WOODY, BROWN SUGAR AND CARAMELIZED BANANA NOSE IS THE FIRST CLUE. THE VERY UNIQUE SWEET CORN LACED WITH CINNAMON AND VANILLA STEALS YOUR TASTE BUDS. THE HONEYED HEAT FINISH MAKES IT A DEAL YOU CANT REFUSE, STRAIGHT OR ON THE ROCKS. NOW AFTER AN  E-SCAPE, TRY A F-SCAPE; IN A COCKTAIL GLASS PUT 2 TSP WATER, 2 TSP SIMPLE SYRUP AND 2 DASHES OF BITTERS, SHAKE, ADD ¾ C UP CRUSHED ICE AND 2 MARASCHINO CHERRIES, POUR 1.5 OZ LARCENY BOURBON OVER THEM, A QUICK SWIRL AND AN ORANGE SLICE TO GARNISH.
