In Washington Drinking Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka

I've never understood the point of flavored distilled adult beverages, like citrus flavored vodka, or peach flavored rum. Why not just mix in some citrus drink, like orange juice, into your vodka? Or peach juice into your rum?

There is a new flavored vodka that I really don't know how one would make your vodka this particular flavor, other than buying the flavored vodka.

I am talking about Alaska Distillery's Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka.

Apparently once you have a Bloody Mary made with Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka, you'll never want to return to boring, flavorless vodka.

It took several tries before Alaska Distillery successfully infused vodka with the essence of smoked salmon. Apparently early efforts were too oily.

Currently the only states in which you can buy Alaska Distillery's Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka are where it is brewed, that being the state of Alaska. And Alaska's good friend and almost next door neighbor, that being the state of Washington.

I am currently in the state of Texas. Can it be long before some enterprising Texan comes up with Texas BBQ Flavored Vodka?
