BACON-FLAVORED VODKA AT A DISCOUNT!
The Columbus Dispath had this story the other day about the poor-selling vodkas in the state of Ohio, and oh my, bacon made the list!
“You might be surprised to learn that bacon-flavored vodka is not one of the best-sellers handled by the Ohio Division of Liquor Control.
So there’s a “sale” on Bakon Vodka, the state agency announced yesterday. Joining it on the sale rack are Prairie Organic Kosher Vodka, Tarantula Strawberry Tequila Liqueur and UV Vodka Sweet Green Tea.”
While the state stopped operating state liquor stores in 1997, the Division of Liquor Control is the sole purchaser and distributor of liquor stronger than 21 percent by volume. The state picks the liquors, sets prices and supplies them to 456 private businesses that contract to sell them for a commission of 4 to 6 percent.
That means, as with any other business, there are winners and losers. The state’s best-seller, Kamchatka Vodka, sold 401,148 gallons last year. Jack Daniels was second at 349,589 gallons.
And the losers? Well, they’re on sale. The state recently began sales for slow-selling liquors, discontinued products and other items.
“It’s about making room in the inventory for items more in demand,” said Matt Mullins, spokesman for the Division of Liquor Control.
Demand also varies by the region of the state. “Products that sell well in Cleveland, for example, may not sell so well in Marietta,” Mullins said
This is where Bakon Vodka comes in. The offbeat liquor is popular in some places, such as the Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas, which touts itself as birthplace of the bacon-vodka martini. It remains a signature drink there, but it’s not ringing the cash register in Ohio.
Phil Blundred, of Middle West Spirits, a Columbus micro-distillery, said the growing trend is to try all kinds of flavors in liquor, especially vodka, since it has a less-distinctive natural flavor than some others. His company makes naturally infused Honey Vanilla Bean and Stone Fruit OYO vodkas, distilled from red winter wheat.
Blundred said the most unusual flavor he’s heard of is Mountain Dew-flavored vodka. The name of the concoction: Dude.
And speaking of Bacon dudes, we’ll always have Kevin…
