Bacon has been married with chocolate, donuts and a host of other foods. So why not bacon-flavored vodka? Bacon is, after all, one of the most beloved flavors of all time. Bakon with a “k” is a potato-based spirit. Complex and creative on the nose, it boasts aromas of smoke, wet beef jerky, soy sauce, kosher salt, vanilla, smoke, toast and spice. It is not totally clear in the glass, as hints of bacon color add just a bit of a light brown hue. It tastes like soft beef jerky and toasted bacon with a vanilla back. Medium smooth on the finish, lasting more than 30 seconds, it tastes great mixed into a stylish Bloody Mary with a unique twist. Bottled in Idaho, Bakon’s American heritage shines through every sip.
