Sugar cane was used to make alcoholic drinks in Egyptian times but it was not until the 16th century that farmers and workers on Caribbean sugar cane plantations took up this ancient tradition. Caribbean rum took molasses and distilled it into a harsh, strong spirit. So to soften the blow, distillers would add their own unique recipes of herbs, spices and fruits. And boom, spiced rum was born."">

"Copper & Kings is an American brandy company based in Butchertown, Louisville, Kentucky. We make a dynamic American style brandy. We do not make derivative brandy. We make a differentiated, uncommon, unadulterated pure pot-distilled natural American brandy. Distilled in American copper potstills, matured in Bourbon barrels. Our signature house style is a little feisty, rambunctious with a long smooth finish.
We use traditional copper pot-distillation to forge untraditional craft-distilled natural, Pure Pot-still brandies. Our brandies are batch distilled exclusively in copper pot-stills, and are non-chill filtered with no added sugar, boise (powdered oak, shavings or infusion) other flavors, synthetic chemicals or caramel colorants for an uncorrupted, authentic, natural flavor, nose and color…" Visit Copper & Kings American Brandy Company Online

Yes, these words describe us, but they do not define us. First and foremost, Lawless Distilling Co. is about community, past and present, which is evident in the stories that shape our spirits.

Our home has many stories to be told and we intend to tell them the way they were meant to be told... over a good, strong drink.
At Lawless Distilling Company we produce spirits for the everyday people."">

When the Bolsheviks took over, the distilleries were shut down and P.A.’s son Vladimir was chased out of town with pitchforks and also dinner forks, since the whole thing happened suddenly and not everyone had a pitchfork with them.
Vladimir Smirnov was able to flee to Constantinople and then eventually settle in France where he sold vodka under the name “Smirnoff.” Now safely disguised by a new name and a slightly offensive fake French accent, Vladimir revived the brand.
Lots of other interesting stuff happened. Vladimir married a model and sang in a band and grew a series of beards, but probably the best thing he did was bring a triple distilled, 10 times filtered, award winning, cola-improving, martini-making vodka to the world. For former czars and current stars. For vodka connoisseurs and people who just like vodka. For everybody."">
SVEDKA’s crisp, distinctive taste profile begins on the shores of Lake Vänern, the largest lake in Sweden, in the small town of Lidköping (population: 25,000). Sweden ranks as one of the cleanest countries in the world**, so it is not surprising that their local ingredients are among the finest as well. Every 750ml bottle of SVEDKA Vodka begins with four pounds of Sweden’s hearty, flavorful winter wheat, all harvested from the pastoral farmlands surrounding the distillery in Lidköping. Another key component to SVEDKA’s quality is the crystalline water from one of the world’s cleanest sources, Sweden’s ice-cold underground springs.
Continuous distillation — a method first introduced in the 11th century — creates ideal conditions for producing top-quality vodka. The “continuous” aspect of the distillation process insures that ingredients are constantly moving so the winter wheat, yeast and water never stalls or pools. At the final stage in this distillation process, SVEDKA is run through high-performance purification columns, five separate times to remove impurities. The end result is outstanding quality SVEDKA Vodka."">

And while other vodkas are all about their serious sides and exclusivity, we guarantee to deliver an experience that helps you and your friends celebrate the best, most fun and exciting times of your lives."">
He grew up loving the food business—his father, Victor Sr., was a waiter at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel and also owned a grocery store in Oakland. Vic would help out in the store, and when a childhood accident cost him a leg, his penchant for telling colorful stories was born.
In 1932, armed with a potbelly stove and $700, he opened a cozy pub across the street from the store and called it Hinky Dink’s. His pungent vocabulary and ribald air made him a popular host, as did his tropical cocktails and his delicious interpretation of Polynesian food.
In 1936, when writer Herb Caen wrote that the best restaurant in San Francisco was in Oakland, Vic had become “The Trader,” and Hinky Dink’s had become “Trader Vic’s.”
Part of its success, Vic said at the time, was the theme. It was the complete escape. “You’d think of beaches and moonlight and pretty girls.”
One of Trader Vic’s brightest legacies is his invention of the Mai Tai, the bracingly refreshing cocktail he created at the restaurant in 1944, and introduced to the Hawaiian Islands in the 1950s."">
