Snake Whiskey

Postby kingrobert » Mon Sep 06, 2010 7:03 am

Hi all.

Every year for new years my brothers and some friends do a liquor exchange. I have my eyes set on a Cobra Whiskey for this year. The only place I can find it for sale is online from a thailand website. Unfortunately there is a notice on the website that it is now illegal for them to ship liquid products.

Does anyone know of another place to find a whiskey like this? Preferably within the states, but I'm willing to shop internationally if need be.

Also, any suggestions if a Snake Whiskey is unavailable? We try for something unique and high quality. Shopping at BevMo won't do. Last year the hit of the exchange was a bottle of Absinthe Beetle, though I'd like to go with a whiskey for this year.

I've had this on the Thai-Laos border before, and it tastes at least as bad as you'd expect. Bottle looks very cool though!

Errr, no idea where you could buy this commercially.

Although last year in Japan a friend took me out to a bar that had a bottle of Suntory Kakubin in which a viper had been pickling away for a few years. Although by this point I was beyond gone (long night of drinking), couldn't tell if it tasted any different to the usual Kakubin. Even tried eating a little part of the snake... I asked the barman if any of the venom was still potent, he just shrugged his shoulders and handed it over. :P

Hello, just received my order from Buy-snake-wine shop but I cannot try it, too scared hahaha... Did you finish the bottle ? I wonder why they said this as I have been delivered in USA without problem ? Anyway I paid with Paypal and can be refunded if any problem. One last thing, do you know where to find lizard wine ? Thank you.
