ABOUT LIQUOR TSHIRTS
“Working in the liquor industry for two decades we know the power of a tshirt, and how important it is that every brand needs to have a tshirt available to their customers.

Consumers love what they drink, and they love a high quality t-shirt that is just as comfortable today as the day it was purchased. The perfect t-shirt is one that every time you wear it someone asks where they can get one. Liquor companies know they need to have t-shirts available to consumers, but don’t want to deal with what seems like a full time job of designing, printing, stocking, filling orders, shipping… LIQUOR TSHIRTS sells as little as one shirt a year for some companies and thousands for others, both tshirts are the same qualily made the same exact way.
LIQUOR TSHIRTS is one convenient online store, where customers can get exactly what they want. If there is a brand that we don’t carry yet, please email us and we will do our best to make it available as soon as possible.

Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka is distilled in small batches using a state of the art still. The source used for this vodka is sweet corn from the Olathe region of Colorado. Farmers here use snowmelt to irrigate. The corn kernels are smaller than the kernel of regular corn and have a concentrated flavor. It is analogous to the size of wine grapes to table grapes. The cost is much higher, but the quality of the corn is exceptional. Harvesting of the corn is done without pesticides and the corn is naturally Gluten Free. This corn is usually hand picked rather than machine harvested because of the soft nature of the corn.
The water used in irrigation, distilling and to cut the distillate begins as snowmelt and for the processing and cutting is then purified. While many distilleries use purified water, few begin with anything as pristine as ours.
The filtration process is another big difference between this vodka and others. They filter the vodka once and coarsely, they make it this way to leave more of the oils and to have a more flavorful vodka. This creates a weightier vodka.
The corn is brought in whole kernels from the farms and milled on site. This is important because pre-milled grains can become oxidized and lose much of the flavor. It is fermented right after milling sent straight to the fermenters to again guard against oxidation. The fermented liquid is then batch distilled. Unlike continuous distillation this leaves more of the original character. It is distilled correctly one time, and the heads and tails are cut. We cut 30% of the distillate to ensure only the heart of the distillate remains.
The label features mountains a depiction of the Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak in the Colorado Rockies, which is a backdrop to the distillery.
