VODKA MADE BETTER

Fort Worth Texas’ legendary Hell’s Half Acre was an accumulation of bordellos, saloons, and gambling parlors during the 1870s. The most infamous red-light district of the old “Wild West” was frequented by outlaws like “Longhair Jim” Courtright, Luke Short, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Sam Bass, along with Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch.

For more than 30 years, Hell’s Half Acre operated on a “sin-and-gin” model of supply and demand. It was a two-fisted, pistol-packin’, easy-lovin’ veritable mall of vice that helped develop and establish Fort Worth’s economy.

It was also referred to as the town’s “Bloody Third Ward” due to the violence and lawlessness in the area. Rules were broken, blood was spilt, and sharing a bottle of alcohol was their way of breaking bread.

HHA's Will Carver

This classic cocktail of coffee liqueur, cream, and Hell's Half Acre Vodka has a smooth & warm embrace that only Texas can offer.

Who was Will Carver anyway?

William “News” Carver was an American outlaw and a member of Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch during the days of the Old Wild West. His nickname “News” was given to him because he enjoyed seeing his name in newspaper exposés of his gang activity. At the end of his notorious spree, Carver was ambushed and killed by Sheriff deputies in 1901.

“Distilled from cassava root, this unusual vodka shows distinct sweetness. Look for a light vanilla scent and hints of dulce de leche, almond and vanilla on the creamy palate, plus cinnamon sizzle on the finish. Ideal for dessert-like cocktails or anywhere a bit of sweetness is desired. Best Buy.” ~ Kara Newman, Spirits Editor
