VENOM VODKA

THE STORY

Arizona

The Colorado River

It was a warm summer day....

It was a warm Summer day on the Colorado River when veteran firefighter Kim Blaylock was inspired to enter the distilled spirits industry. With the picturesque Arizona desert terrain in the background and the beautiful Colorado River flowing by, the vodka vision was born over a cup of morning coffee. As Kim pondered the over the possibilities with a friend and fellow firefighter, it seemed only fitting that the vodka name reflect where the vision came to life, hence the name Venom from the venomous desert wildlife. He wasn't sure how to get started on this venture but one thing he was certain of, he wanted to create a top shelf, ultra premium vodka with a classy bottle design. The beautiful Medusa “Serpent” Goddess seemed a perfect fit. Venomous, beautiful and captivating to all, she became the sleek, classy design of the Venom label. The ingredients however, took many years of research, classes and tastings to develop.

We are proud to present Venom Vodka. Crafted in small batches from the freshest all natural corn base grain. Venom Vodka is distilled 13 times and filtered ten times through charcoal, diamonds and onyx. This time consuming process is what distinguishes Venom Vodka as a Top-Shelf Martini Vodka. From the beautiful captivating Medusa on the label, to the ultra smooth vodka, Kim's heart went in to this product.

Kim has been blessed with the two best jobs in the world, fighting fires and making vodka. However, he will always be a firefighter at heart. And that fact is printed on the bottle where we pledge to give a portion of the proceeds to support various firefighter charities.

Uncork and Enjoy!
