Rebel Distillers has partnered with Bethesda Softworks to create Doom Bone Vodka, a limited edition spirit that celebrates the upcoming release of video game Doom Eternal.
Inspired by the video game, which centres around Earth’s demonic invasion, the wheat-based vodka is made using high-quality and ethically sourced beef bones from London butchers The Ginger Pig.
Once the bones have been roasted and smoked, the marrow is extracted and macerated in neutral grain alcohol. The spirit is distilled at a very low temperature in a vacuum still to extract the “best flavour”.
Doom Bone Vodka has a “dry, earthy start on the palate, with umami and buttery feel on the tongue, rounding off with a smoky and peppery finish.”
Matt McGivern of Rebel Distillers said: “We’re tapping into one of the world’s favourite hobbies – video games – to offer a unique perspective in spirit production.
“Doom Eternal is a world of flames and demons, a barbeque pit with action – a smoked bone vodka is certainly a new take on spirit provenance.”
