    It's funny you say that, because apparently the company started out by suggesting that, but then changed their mind:

    “You’ll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose,” the site said, before stressing this is a bad idea and Palcohol should only be used responsibly.

    Since news of the product broke, the company has removed that text from their website, explaining it was a “humorous and edgy” first draft they didn’t intend the public to see. (View the web page cache here.)



    The cache has disappeared since yesterday, but it was there.

    Sounds more like TTB approved it without a second thought and now is getting its hand slapped by someone farther up the food chain.

    Re: coming soon ... powdered bourbon

    In an era when any new and innovative consumable has an instant enemy industry/interest group ready to spout about its real or imagined dangers (you know, for the children™), I don't see this stuff making it very far. That is, unless the heavy hitters deem it worth gobbling up to market and sell by themselves.
