Still 173 at Vermillion Liquor!

For you fans of the hard stuff (in responsible quantities, of course), we now have our very own source here in Vermillion.  Still 173, operated by our own Nate Brady (formerly known in farmers market circles as the chicken man until the chickens got into his wife’s garden), offers vodka and light and dark rum.

I sampled all three at Valiant Vineyards Great Dakota Wine Fest last fall, and was impressed.  My favorite was the dark rum, a real sippin’ liquor with a nice oaky finish.  I also tried a rum and Coke with the light rum and found it a real knock out, pun intended.

Not being a fan of vodka (though I am using some to create my own chokecherry liqueur), I’ll leave that for others to judge.

So stop down to Vermillion Liquor (or the winery, where it is available by the glass or bottle) and check out some prime hometown booze.
