You know how I know it’s Christmas? Because I just discovered a Christmas miracle—whiskey in a bag.
Calhoun Brothers Adventure Spirits is a straight bourbon whiskey that’s packaged in a lightweight, flexible, reseal-able pouch. 86 proof, 200 ML. Ladies and gentlemen, this is whiskey on the go!
I haven’t had the opportunity to try it, so I can’t speak for the quality of the bagged bourbon, but my mind is reeling with the possibilities, neh, the global implications of putting whiskey in a travel pouch. I spent most of my formative years pouring bourbon into sure-lock zip lock baggies. Football games, weddings, long-distance flights…there always seemed to be an occasion that called for a bag of whiskey. The system was never perfect. There was often leakage.
Later in life, after discovering the outdoors, the need for whiskey on the go only seemed to increase. Stronger bags were tried, but with limited success. Flasks are fine, but they only hold a few ounces. You can bring a whole bottle of whiskey backpacking with you, but do you know what a broken bottle of whiskey inside your backpack does for moral when you’re on day two of a five-day backpacking trip?
But here, finally, with Calhoun Brothers, we have what could be the perfect whiskey on the go system. The antidote to leaky zip lock bags and broken bourbon bottles.
Boys and girls, this is a Christmas miracle. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And he has bourbon in a bag!
