Smyrna, Delaware–Off the Hoof Scrapple Flavored Vodka, from Painted Stave Distilling, will be launching in the Delaware market on April 26, 2015. This small batch vodka has been distilled with real, Delaware scrapple and traditional scrapple herbs and spices for a robust flavor.
The bottle features a custom label illustrated by a local Delaware artist. The illustration depicts a tough-looking swine, tattooed with Painted Stave Distilling’s iconic pin-up girl, Sandy. Sandy is Painted Stave Distilling’s personification of their test still or “frankenstill” where the Off the Hoof spirit was created.
Three kick-off events, in southern, central and northern Delaware, have been scheduled to promote the launch. Painted Stave Distilling will be hosting the first, official Off the Hoof brunch on Sunday, April 26, 2015 from 11am to 3pm. The event will include craft cocktails, food – including signature scrapple egg rolls from the Delaware Egg Roll, games, and music from local bands STR and The Quixote Project. The first 100 people to order an Off the Hoof Bloody Mary in a pint will receive a complimentary glass.
The following two events will be held during brunch hours on Sunday, May 3, 2015 at Kid Shelleen’s in Wilmington, DE and The Starboard in Dewey Beach, DE where the first 80 people at each venue to order a Off the Hoof cocktail will receive a complimentary glass.
Off the Hoof Scrapple Flavored Vodka is recommended for cocktails that highlight its unique flavor such as a modern Bloody Mary or Scrappletini. The vodka sells at a suggested retail price of $19.99 for a 750ml bottle.
