Whilst feeling disgusted at being mentioned in the same thread as 'Suck and Blow' may I mention our West Eleven Cocktails?

http://www.specialitydrinks.com/F-467-West_Eleven.aspx

"No corner has been cut in the development of West Eleven and the challenge to produce a ready to serve cocktail as good as if a barman was standing in front of you has been realised" Patience Gould, Spirits Business

It's been fun selling cocktails in bottles, although the economic climate, with retailers favouring value over premium products, is a daily kick where it hurts.

I was thinking the same as Robert. Soon the first law suit will be filed by the Mom who put the Gasolina in the lunch box by accident.

Well intentioned forrest, thank you.

- Shotpak list no retail location within 100 miles of my home
- Suck and Blow (um..) appears to be a serving vessle; you make your own cocktail
- Specialty Drinks is a great resource for some products, however an 8oz bottle of cocktial would run me about $21(us) with shipping.
- Has anyone tried the "Cocktails by Jen" ? btw the shipping cost are very confusing: different rates and surcharges "per bottle" but sold in 4-packs. At first glance it looks like it would cost $19 to ship plus $13 for the 4 (8.7 oz) bottles. If the product is good I'll look into that further.

Yes well intentioned and deeply 'lubricated'.
Cocktail by Jenn are "good for what they are"- pre-mixed cocktails in a bottle.
Hi Time ships ShotPAk's all the time, i am sure you could find some one else who would also...
Or even better-- pop by The Container Store or something like it, and pick out the perfect size vessels to fill with your famous Wray and Nephew Over proof Punch!
That is what i would really recommend.

Thanks forrest, I like that idea. Of course I usually carry my WNOP in my hip flask - not to subtle.

To get back on topic: I thought the juice-box look would be more understated. I guess in truth the RTD was not as important as the convenience of the innocuous little package - and of course the idea of drinking something that tastes like gasoline. Love that burn!

No it does not. For exterior paint removal we rely on category one or higher Hurricanes. For interior paint removal we rely on the local 151 proof rum...Be advised though, when using the interior method of removal, DO NOT light your cigar. My eyebrows are finally coming back in after my "experience".

Vic...The pouch is a good idea. They also produce a "Mojito" pouch. I have not tried that one yet. I've always been a sucker for the smell of 93 octane, as well as fresh laid asphalt...and don't get me going on those old creosote soaked telephone poles.

So I'm not the only one to get excited sniffing the old train tracks running through the ancient part of town.

Paul, I recall you starting this endeavor earlier this year, how has it gone so far? Also, any plans on finding an importer? While it wouldnt sell it for the bar, Id love a few bottles for home for those nights I just want to grab a glass and pour.
