ISO Bacon Vodka

  • 5

Hi all -
I've been looking for bacon vodka but cannot find anything except how to make it yourself. Does anyone know where to find it in Toronto?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Thanks to AGCO regs, it's illegal to sell alcohol that has been altered in any way. There are good reasons behind that, but it screws over artisanal cocktails who are doing things for non-nefarious reasons. No distiller that the LCBO carries makes bacon vodka, so you're SOL.

    If you have the right friends, well you might get a different answer. It's assuredly not something that can be discussed on a public forum or on the internet at all. Fight Club rules and all that.

      It's illegal to sell alcohol that's been altered in any way? I'm sure I saw some flavoured vodka in the LCBO, I remember there is a product with chili in it, among others.

        Altered - as in not in the condition that you bought it in. Must be poured directly from bottle/can/keg into your glass or pitcher. Thus they can't pour it into a pot to infuse with flavour and then back into bottle or add anything to the bottle.

        Flavour has to be added by the distiller.

    2. According to this article (linked below) it's quite easy to make. Money quote:

      "There isn't much to making bacon vodka: You throw a few cooked slices into the bottle, put it in a cupboard, and wait three weeks."

      Whether it''s worth the effort is debatable, however. Money quote #2:

      "It tastes like I'm having a stroke."

        Guess I'll have to put my patience to the test and make it myself. Thanks for the help!
