Phoenix, AZ--

Talons reliever (and two time JL Reliever of the Year winner) Timofei Bakitski held a press conference today to introduce his new brand of premium distilled spirits: VODAK.

It's a new brand of super exclusive premium beverage, according to the marketing press kit handed out at the media event today. The pamphlet reads, in part: "First there were wine snobs... Then craft beer hipster snobs... 12 year old single malt Scotch... There's even a Bourbon trail for cryin' out loud. But now you, the discerning eastern European alcoholic, can finally join the ranks of the elite... with VODAK premium vodka. Only from Bakitski Distilleries."

The Phoenix reliever had this to say to the assembled press: "Я люблю качки для бейсбольной команды Phoenix. Но я люблю напиваться еще больше, теперь с моим премиальным VODAK, я могу сделать и то, и другое! Не имеет значения, нужен ли мне аут или двойная игра, я всегда могу рассчитывать на VODAK, чтобы довести меня до конца. И теперь, так же ВЫ ВЫ!"

The press kit even hinted at a NASCAR sponsorship, indicating that Bakitski Distilleries is willing to go toe to toe with established stock car sponsors Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam.

It remains to be seen whether this will be successful, but hey, a guy's gotta try, right?

GO Talosn!

The Havana sugar kings would like to order a few cases for after the Cartwright. Either for celebration or for drowning our sorrows.

Is there such a thing as a ‘discerning ‘ Eastern European alcoholic?

Or one that could afford a premium drink?

I think you need to target a different market...
