    I believe this can only be found in Tennessee. It can’t be shipped here, and I think the only way I can get it is to have a big rig with a black Trans Am blocker bring some to Denver in 28 hours.

    If you are in Tennessee, or somehow find this in a local shop...do not walk..run and buy all of it you can. It’s very small batch and I don’t know that he made much after his 8yr and 12yr batches.

    BTW - I liked the 8 yr better than the 12 yr, but that’s a personal preference.

          It’s not for certain but rumor is he gets Dickel whiskey, and then cold filters it through hickory charcoal he makes in the same smoker he uses for the BBQ.

          Found that story here (probably where I heard it first): Whiskey Review Round Up: Peg Leg Porker Whiskey - The Whiskey Wash

              This is easily one of the best craft vodkas around and can't beat the price (usually $15-20 at most FL liquor stores).

              Made in St Pete from FL spring water and corn, with a sweet aftertaste. Drinking now to celebrate the Tampa Bay Lighting Stanley Cup victory (also had post-Gator victory this Saturday).

              Highly recommended.

                Thanks for the recommendation. I like Tito's a lot but always looking for local hooch.

                St Augustine Gin is pretty good as well for a home grown product.

                  Being a native Texan, Tito's will always have a place in my selection; but have to admit: this is better. Buy a bottle and see for yourself!

                  Second the St. Augustine distillery--I live in Jax and that's a really good local(ish) spot. As good of a beer town as Jax is, we don't have a ton of good spirits options. Manifest Distillery is ok and has a few good ones, but would never say they're elite.

                  I remember made in Florida Vodka from the 70’s. You would shake it and it looked like a snow globe as everything settled... maybe Winter Haven??
