We all heard of Roswell—and the long-kept secrets of alien abductions and encounters.
How did Roswell get so unlucky? Up here in Canada, the birthplace of E.T.51, our experience is a little different. Otherworldly beings that landed here are not carted off to labs and experiments. They came bearing gifts. It is a rare elixir from a far off-planet.
We poured it on the rocks, which unfolded the magic. It appears that a whisky with body more robust than gravity, was a pursuit that echoed across the cosmos.
And when we awoke the next day, the beings are gone—but they left their recipe and a few bottles for us to pour from. Their friends that landed south in the desert hated the heat—and will never pour any of their sweet, smooth vodkas and whiskies under such harsh conditions.
For our friends who may still be out there, in Area 51—cheers to you, for the party has just begun.
