    Re: Help finding a Copper Whiskey Thief & Bung Hammer

    From what I saw on Twitter, Four Roses gave away a thief to each attendee at their Bourbon Affair event. Check the auction sites.

    I saw that on Instagram as well and was about to say the same thing!

    People will always sell freebies for a buck.

    At one time, Heaven Hill had a copper whiskey thief available in their visitor center. It may have been last year (Sampler 2013) when I saw them. I did not see any this year; however, it may be worth contacting them.

    I have been watching "whiskey thief" on ebay for a few years now. In all that time only one has turned up - meanwhile, using different searches there have been two or three bung hammers turn up.

    I saw a tweet from Vendome Copper that they would soon be offering their copper thiefs for sale. Something to look into Cam...

    That's certainly a great one to keep an eye on. I wonder if Vendome would ship, or do I need an excuse for a return trip in a year or so

    Only thing about the Vendome thiefs is they run between $200 and $400.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    The Heaven Hill Visitor Center has Copper Whiskey Thiefs for $179. I was there last Sunday, September 21 and they had a few.
