About a year ago, I wrote about a mysterious bourbon pirate who was going around our office and stealing swigs of Kentucky hooch from our private stashes. Bastard polished off a bottle of Elmer T. Lee, went through half a jug of Woodford Reserve, and even broke into the cheap-ass Jim Beam. And while everyone in the office wanted to blame our janitors for the theft, I gave them a pass. Mexicans, as everyone knows, don't care for bourbon--they like Buchanan's, mezcal, cerveza and tequila, and while we don't stock bukanas, we have a shitload of tequila--and none of those bottles were ever disturbed.

The bourbon pirate stopped, and that was that. Flash-forward to late last month, when a whiskey bandit began disturbing our offices. They broke into our production manager's Jameson, my Cabin Still, and--worst of all--finished a whole bottle of Signatory Vintage 21-year-old Island single-malt scotch, a bottle that costs about $75.
This time, we were prepared: we had a nanny cam installed looking straight at a bottle of Jameson's. And the results were shocking. ROLL THE TAPE!More »
