    That's just outright STUPID. Even if you replaced the Gin with Jack. It would still make no sense but they do have a common following. It's not actually the product that makes it that bad it's that there's a market for it. People with to much money looking for new ways to set it on fire. A GRAND! WTF are they thinking? I have some beer here with spent bullets in it if anyone has a $100 to spend. I know cheap at twice the price, how do we do it. When you realize what you just wasted your money on you can load the gun that comes in the cider jugs and shoot yourself.

    yea it's pretty genius.

    make it expensive enough to be exclusive and convince people with too much money to buy it.

    so is anybody else concerned about the leaching of potentially dangerous metal alloys into food? or do we just assume that the people that buy this don't drink it.

    Well I figure I can't save the world but, I won't drink it. The power of marketing is truly staggering.

    Gin because it's the hipster in drink of the moment. Hence why they are also doing the whole wrapped in wax paper shit.
    Hipsters with lots of doe will flock to this shit.

    I say good on the guy for spotting a gap in the market and fleecing the many idiots that can afford it. He can't make the shit fast enough apparently so he's doing well.

    A fool and his money are easily parted.

    As to the potentially poisonous part, apparently they coat the parts in tin to make it safe.
    Not that I would want to drink it after a few years stewing.
    I think that most of this shit will be for showing off to friends at parties and will never be drank......
