Proof66 Notes

Bakon vodka is one of the only—and perhaps the first—bacon flavored vodka in the world... perhaps the first meat flavored spirit in the world. The origin is said to lie in a desire to create a "savory vodka" in opposition to the many fruity and sweet flavored vodkas on the market today. The vodka is made from a base of Idaho potatoes. Then the bacon flavor is blended with the spirit with the distiller promising a "delicious crisp slice of peppered-bacon." They recommend it for Bloody Mary cocktails. It is filed with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau as produced at the Idaho-based Koenig Distillery (itself a specialty producer of potato vodka). It is owned by Black Rock Spirits

In 2010, the Beverage Testing Institute said Bakon was "a must try for Bloody Marys."

Bakon Vodka was awarded the Silver Medal at the 2010 SIP Awards.

Not convinced meat infused liquor is a good idea ever. This smells just like bacon bits on a salad bar. Maybe it should be used salad dressings. It tastes a bit better than it smells but, after swallowing, I find myself wondering why I would ever drink it again. Maybe cook with it; thats my best recommendation.
