Trots namnet och det faktum att de Svenska hinsides rockarna i Ghost utvecklat sin Merchandising katalog en del, så har "Frozen Ghost Vodka" mig veterligen inget med bandet att göra. Dock försöker dryckestillverkaren, precis som bandet, genom smart branding skapa sin egen mytbildning runt sin dryck.
Kort och gott, snygg paketering och därtill även en historia. Påhittad eller ej, vem bryr sig. Den påminner lite om mina hemtrakters gamla myt om "Riskastet", även om den historien inte har mer med dryck att göra än det som vi besökare hade i kroppen för det mesta, när platsen besöktes om nätterna. Främst i syfte att skrämma upp eventuellt damsällskap.
Här är spökhistorien som inramar produkten:
This is a story of people whose names are lost to time, set in a location which is a sworn secret, for reasons that will become clear at the end of this tale.The Legend of the Frozen Ghost
Generations ago, a family in Western Canada had a proud but small farm. They raised crops and livestock so plentifully, they outproduced all the other farms in the colony. Soon, people began to realize that the spring that watered their land was the sweetest and purest in the area and was thought to be the source of their success.
A jealous neighbor schemed to divert their water to his own property. Stealing onto their land one bitterly cold winter night, he was confronted by the farm’s owner, known only as Tobias. The neighbor struck him with his shovel, knocking him unconscious into a pond near the mouth of the spring. The water thief completed his work, diverting some of the spring’s output to his property by means of the underground channel he dug.
Tobias’s body was later discovered in the ice that froze the pond deep on that frigid winter night.
No one knew how he died. The secret was safe until the neighbor began to report a strange presence of Tobias that haunted his every step. A presence that ultimately drove him mad. He confessed everything as he was driven in a prison cart to the colony’s sanitarium.
The farm has changed hands many times over the centuries, and now that same spring’s water is used to produce Frozen Ghost Vodka. That pure water gives Frozen Ghost its unparalleled smooth, crisp character, even before it is distilled six times for the ultimate purity.
We won’t reveal the spring’s location for your own protection. For on the rare occasions that a visitor has attempted to approach the site, an undeniable chill overtakes the stranger, along with a dark foreboding that a more dangerous fate quickly approaches. It is said that Tobias is still keeping watch over his spring.
So don’t let your curiosity overtake you and tempt you to search for the water’s source. Just be satisfied that you can raise a glass to the one who is watching over the pure taste of Frozen Ghost Vodka, the supernatural super-premium
Ni vet ju hur det brukar vara här i SpaderEss lilla håla, har ingen aning om huruvida detta är en bra produkt eller ej, och tyvärr verkar den bara finnas för försäljning i USA just nu, men dom har gjort mig nyfiken nog för att trigga mitt habegär. Man kanske skulle skicka en önskning till bandet Ghost, som just nu är på USA turné, att dom tar hem ett par flaskor. :-)
Så, GE MIG NU!
