There is only one perishable ingredient in a bloody mary, tomato juice. So, Twisted Path Distillery wanted to separate it out.

The end result is an 80-proof vodka that has all you need in a bloody mary already in it, and you just add it to plain tomato juice. It’s easy, it tastes better, and its shelf stable at room temperature.

It is a story of high drama, two disastrous wars, great political and military bungling, larger-than-life characters, a few quiet heroes, hundreds of mules, thousands of camels, and two zebrules—all playing out against a backdrop of the most spectacular geography on earth.
