MOKB Welcomes Indiana Vodka

MOKB would like to welcome our new (Indiana distilled) friends at Indiana Vodka to the MOKB family of partners.  You're first peek (or taste) will come on April 1st at the Mayer Hawthorne show!  We're workin' up a very special recipe that will be unveiled at the show.  We had a chance to do our first taste-test at the Trampled By Turtles show and we have to tell you... this is some tasty goodness.  Ask your favorite bartender for an Indiana Vodka cocktail.  We love supporting Indiana-based companies (like our friends at Upland Brewery) and you should too.
