For those of you with deep wallets .....

A limited edition - only 1000 liter-sized bottles, in a 2-foot tall carved tiki box, which lights up when opened. Also, four individual tiki shot glasses.



with price discounts, you might be able to get it for $800

I wonder how many people reserved one last Dec.? They had an ad in Tiki Mag. Vol 4, No.3.

I also wonder what island the original Voodoo Tiki is from that their "precise replica" depicts.

That picture makes the tequila look WAY too light for an extra anejo. I'd be suspect on the quality.

Yeah, the boxed edition is a huge chunk of change, but you gotta love those hand-blown bottles with a little tiki inside them.

Can I ask what was so bad about this post that it had to be removed via threats from lawyers? All I can guess is it was a joke about tequila not being Tiki or about the ridiculous price. Seems like something that would happen in North Korea as opposed to a country with free speech.

It got taken down because the photo was modified to look like the infamous Tiki Tissue Box. This got the creator of the thing butthurt and a lawyer contacted me. I went back and forth with them and then contacted Unga and asked if it was cool, and unga was fine with it. So I removed it.

Thanks for the explanation. That definitely falls under fair use parody. Gotta love it when people think they can invent new anti-democratic laws because they have lawyers that can bully people and intimidate them into complying with things that would never pass the legal sniff test in an actual court setting. You should have given him this:
