The Story of Our Brands
Bakon Vodka - 100% Potato, Bacon-flavored Vodka
The idea for Bakon Vodka came on a camping trip with friends in the summer of 2006. At the time there were a number of flavored spirits, but almost all of them were sweet. We thought that a savory bacon-flavored vodka would work great in a Bloody Mary. After almost two years of testing, trying it out with friends and bartenders, and going through all of the regulatory hurdles we sold our first bottle of Bakon Vodka in May 2008. It's now available in 45 states and 5 countries, and has has been used in winning recipes at national cocktail competitions and has taken the Gold medal in a number of international competitions. It was rated 93 Points by Tasting Panel Magazine.
Sparkle Donkey Tequila - 100% Agave Tequila
We have been tequila fans for decades - it was our go-to drink among friends for as long as we can remember. Black Rock Spirits found a unique opportunity to partner with a boutique distillery in the town of Tequila, Mexico. We wanted to come up with a high-quality 100% agave tequila using traditional techniques... but without all of the "traditional" heritage marketing. Launched in September 2012, it has already won numerous awards including the Gold medal at BTI International (rated 93 points).
