Denver one-ups the Boston Tea Party

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

And look what stumbled into the ol' e-mail box, not surprisingly, at 2:00 a.m in the morning. Yes, Maker's Mark is getting in on the action:

As you know, we're card-carrying members of the cocktail party, and we couldn't resist the opportunity to have some fun this political season. So starting this weekend, folks in metro Denver and Minneapolis will find red-white-and-blue wax-dipped bottles in their local liquor stores. These bottles were created to help celebrate the upcoming political conventions in each city. As for the rest of us, no need to fret. We'll have more red, white and blue bottles out this September.

Both 750 and liter sized bottles will be available in each of the wax versions (some with blue on top, others with red on top).
So if you're a Democrat punch-drunk over the thought of victory this year, or a Republican trying to convince someone, anyone, that you've got any kind of plan for America, well, this one's for you.

And for the rest of you good citizens still reeling from a housing crisis, stagnant wages or if you're just one of those people feeling that "the country is on the wrong track," (which is 74% of you as of last week), you'll get a chance to drown your sorrows in September!
