DEFCON Defense Condition ZERO Batch #3


Just a reminder that the next glorious release of our infamous DEFCON Defense Condition ZERO Batch #3 is a mere 16 days away! Many of you who own at least one of our previous releases, if not both, must be a bit curious as to what this one is going to look like. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed this go-around. We are looking to have approximately 50 of these available. The actual number hasn’t been established yet, as we haven’t completed our harvest of the ZERO elixir as of yet.

In addition to this, for the first time, due to popular demand, we are offering a VERY limited amount of ZERO in un-signed and un-numbered 1 ounce bottles. Over the last year, many have inquired about its’ taste, not wanting to open their collector bottle. I have heard your call, and am doing my best to answer it. Most individuals who do not live in the area have never met the DEFCON Crew or attended one of our DEFCON Days have never had a chance to taste the ZERO. We here at DEFCON HQ understand this, which is why the un-signed, un-numbered bottles will only be available on-line only, NOT at the Hillsborough show, so as to let those who live far away have the same chance at getting one.

As stated, this is a VERY limited amount of non-collector bottles, and we won’t know the exact number until a few days before the release. You will be given the information on how to secure one of these along with the collector bottle when they become available on-line on or about 9/10/-9/12.

If you’ve been to the website any time recently you know that the original unveiling of these little beauties will be at the Hillsborough Fire Dept, “No fire, just smoke” BBQ Competition Cook-off in Hillsborough, NJ on Woods Road on Saturday September 9th. After that, the remaining bottles (not sold at the Fire Dept event) will be available on-line on or about 9/10-9/12. An e-mail will be sent to those on this mailing list, and the first number of people to e-mail back, up to the number of bottles, will be given the opportunity to purchase one (ONE per person, so as to allow as many people as possible to own one).

This release is larger and completely different than ALL other releases, and will be a -glowing- addition to anyone’s collector shelf. I will release another reminder about a week before the release date. We here at DEFCON HQ wish you luck in the acquisition of one of our hand-crafted vessels of primordial happiness, and look forward to your continued interest in our products.

Also, while I have your attention. The new Supersized Defense Condition #1 in 8 ounce bottles should be available the beginning of September, and is 25% hotter!!!
And our habanero horseradish, the DEFCON Habby Horse should be available towards the middle of September!
