SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah distillery is happy Idaho will sell its cheeky Five Wives vodka.

Now, Ogden's Own Distillery lawyer Jonathan Turley says the company wants Idaho regulators to stock Five Wives on shelves at state liquor stores — not just make it available through special warehouse orders.

Regulators say they are considering the request.

Idaho reversed course on Wednesday and said it would lift a ban on Five Wives vodka, with its not-so-subtle reference to polygamy, by agreeing to take special orders.

Idaho regulators previously branded the product offensive to Mormons who make up a quarter of Idaho's population.
