Proof66 Notes

FUGU Vodka is named for the venomous Fugu fish (pufferfish). Because the Fugu requires such meticulous preparation techniques to avoid mortally offending those who try to enjoy it sashimi style in Japan, the vodka is named for the meticulous nature of its crafting. It is made from a base of American grain. The Horchata flavored expression is said to based on "neighborhood taco shops": this includes habenero, horchata, hibiscus, and pineapple. This makes a flavor blend that, to our mind, is unparalleled in its ambition.

Ballast Point Spirits began as a collection of home brewers and aren't afraid of adding a little scientific exploration in the art and history of brewing and distilling. The company was founded by Jack White as a brewing company in 1996 with Juseff Cherney. They began making spirits in 2006. They are also very serious about fishing and various fishing paraphernalia adorn the bottles.
