Boxed Liquor Is Here Because You Deserve to Get Whiskey Drunk in Your Backyard

If the thought of alcohol in a box conjures fuzzy memories of college dorm rooms and games of “slap the bag,” the vintners at Black Box Wines might have triggered more than a few flashbacks with their latest announcement: Boxed whiskey, boxed vodka, and boxed tequila have hit shelves in several states, with many more to come.

It’s not the bottom-shelf booze that you might expect: The brand says it conjured up the same level of quality it puts into its boxed wines, including cabernet, rosé, and malbec, which, combined, have earned more than 50 gold medals in wine competitions nationwide.

This isn’t the first time the world’s been introduced to boxed whiskey. In 2016, Wicked Tango rolled out Fireball, the cinnamon-flavored whiskey, in a box. It was, according to Vice’s food site Munchies, “a 3.5-liter (or 120-ounce) box of Fireball equipped with not one, but two spouts from which you and a buddy can directly imbibe 33 percent ABV cinnamon booze, presumably to the shouts and applause of fellow partygoers.”

Don’t expect Black Box’s offering to be a bag you can pass around and smack with your friends. Black Box, according to an announcement, boasts a “sophisticated 1.75L box that is portable, shatterproof.” Think boxed water, but to satisfy your drinking habits.

Black Box’s newest offerings are available in Colorado, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. The vodka retails at $22.99; tequila and whiskey cost $24.99. For more information, visit
