Thieves made off with more than a million bottle of irreplaceable vodka.

Some thieves have a taste for spirits, and expensive ones at that.

Thieves were caught on camera stealing $1.1 million worth of Spirits of the Tsars Golden Vodka in a Miami warehouse, according to NBC. In a period of five hours the men loaded the loot into a car, van, and box truck.

In true movie heist form, the thieves "successfully broke a hole right where the vodka is stored and didn't set off any alarms," the company told NBC. The men successfully walked off with 752 cases of vodka.

The Ukrainian vodka is worth a pretty penny, coming in a bottle adorned with a 24-carat gold veneer label and sells for anywhere between $250 and $300 at select liquor stores and $1,200 at nightclubs, according to NBC. And though the merchandise was insured, it is irreplaceable because only a limited quantity is made each year.

Authorities are offering a $5,000 cash reward for information on the men that will lead to their arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call 786-629-2022.
