As part of the company’s continuing strategy to provide the very best products to its customers, leading UK wholesaler Makro, has introduced Skorppio Vodka – a new to the UK, premium vodka which contains an edible scorpion. The premium quality vodka is distilled five times from 100 per cent grain, delivering a pure and clean drink. With the brand originating from Spain, the new vodka is produced and bottled in the UK and will be available exclusively at Makro until March 2011, allowing the company’s pub and club customers the chance to get ahead of their competitors by stocking this unusual drink.
The scorpions used in Skorppio Vodka are raised in Mexico in a clean, pesticide-free environment, especially for human consumption, with the venom from the creatures being removed through a special process so they are – for those who dare – completely safe to eat.
Hannes Floto, MD of Makro UK, comments: “Scorpions are considered a delicacy in many countries around the world. Vodka containing a scorpion is often used by bartenders to make jugs of cocktails, with the drinker who gets the scorpion in their glass considered to be the lucky recipient! We are excited to be able to exclusively introduce this drink to the UK market and are looking forward to feedback from our customers.”
Priced at £15.99 for 1x70cl and £91.74 for 6x70cl (exc VAT), the unique vodka is approved by the UK, EU and US governments for sale.
