On Saturday the 9th of November Sin City Presents attended the Raiding the Rock Vault Signature Vodka release party at the Las Vegas Distillery. What a wonderful discovery! This unique attraction is definitely a hidden treasure in the backbeat of Las Vegas. Located off the beaten path and well off the Las Vegas Strip in the city of Henderson is where you will find the Las Vegas Distillery and the “The Las Vegas Copper Angels”, the two beautiful German pot stills.
In a town that has spent millions of dollars imploding our history it’s a refreshing change to see history being made. We learned a little something new while we were there too. Alcoholic spirits have not been legally distilled in Southern Nevada since before Prohibition. In 2011 Las Vegas Distillery owner George Racz pushed for a bill that would allow craft distilleries to sell their products in Southern Nevada and although the bill did not pass in the 2011 session of the Nevada Legislative session it did in 2013. Governor Brian Sandoval signed the Nevada Craft Distillery Bill (Assembly Bill 153) into law on June 10th, effectively opening the doors and paving the way for an entirely new industry segment for Southern Nevada. At present the Las Vegas Distillery is still a one of a kind experience.
For Las Vegas event planners, this new attraction needs to be on your list of venues! How much fun would a barrel party be for your next corporate event? Attendees are able to taste and drink cocktails with their signature spirits and hand label their very own bottle. For locals and visitors alike looking to explore Southern Nevada beyond the neon you can enjoy their “Full Experience” tours for just $20 per person. Visit their website for complete details on tours and party information.
As I mentioned earlier it was the release of a signature Vodka and a bottle signing party featuring legendary rock and roll entertainers from the cast of Raiding the Rock Vault currently playing at the LVH Las Vegas Hotel and Casino that brought us there. The event featuring the limited edition of the Rock Vault Vodka was coordinated by the Jacobs Ladder Show. The Jacobs Ladder Show, Hosted by Stephen and Carolyn Jacobs on Vegas All Net Radio features Las Vegas entrepreneurs and entertainers that have climbed the ladder of success! We would have to say that George Racz and the Rock Vault stars have all done just that!
The theme of the day was definitely “sprited.” The warm and inviting venue, the owner’s graciousness to all those that attended, and the accessibility and friendliness of the Rock Vault Cast were the perfect mixology for an afternoon of both mixing and mingling.

If you missed being able to attend this ROCKIN’ good time you may still be able to get a bottle of the Signature Vodka. However, as we said, it is a limited edition and the supplies were limited so don’t wait too long. Great holiday gift idea for anyone that collects limited edition spirits or rock n roll memorabilia
We encourage you to visit and support this local family owned and operated small business and attraction as soon as possible!
A very special thank you to our photographer Leah Burlington for capturing these great shots for us!
