WHO'S UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
We’ve all heard of or tried the various (and very delicious) fruit infused vodkas, explored interesting flavors from bacon, to dill pickle or even fresh cut grass to smoked salmon vodkas. But, have you heard of Scorpion Vodka? If this isn’t the weirdest thing you’ve heard all week, I don’t know what is.
Made by Skorppio, it is the world’s only vodka with a REAL scorpion. It is described as a “scrumptious boozy scorpion without paralysis and endows the vodka with a soft, woody taste”. They use farm-raised scorpions (a pickled arachnid to be exact), that goes through a 3-month long detoxifying process, neutralizes the venom and making it safe to consume, including its squishy tail. So next question… what do the reviews look like?
Cool and creepy. Puts a sting to your drink.
I could talk about the crisp, clean flavours or how well it creates a vodka Martini – but really and truthfully, the true USP of Skorppio is the real scorpion which resides at the bottom of the bottle. — Gavin, Blood Sweat & Fashion Magazine
Bold. Powerful aphrodisiac. 5 stars!
But wait. There’s MORE. With the rise in popularity of entomophagy across western regions, Skorppio is not alone when it comes to adding incests to their liquor. There’s also Centipede Vodka, Longhorn Asian Beetle vodka, Spider Vodka, and Giant Hornet Shouchuu.
I don’t know about you but I’m going to order myself a classic potato vodka and gummy bears to sort out my thoughts. Adventure seekers – your experience is worth sharing. Tell us about it @sauceyapp!
