Cloud Buzz is described as a “refreshing” way to enjoy shots of all spirits, served in specially designed balloons that are pressurised, and contain vaporised premixed spirits inside.

“When served, you simply inhale from the balloon and the alcohol will instantly vaporise into a misty cloud which, will give you an instant buzz while also making it an aromatic and pleasant experience to taste the actual flavour of the drink”, its website states.

If follows an experiment by food and drink technologists Bompas and Parr in 2015 whereby guests to its Alcoholic Architecture pop-up in Borough Market, London, were invited to inhale alcohol while standing in a mist-filled room.

Billed as the world’s first breathable cocktail bar, the immersive experience saw spirits and mixers turned into a cloud of alcohol with the help of humidifiers creating an environment of 140% humidity.

Visitors were asked to don protective suits and breath in the cocktail vapour, with the alcohol entering the bloodstream through the lungs and eyeballs rather than the liver.

Introducing this new alcoholic vapour invention, Cloud Buzz partner, Davis Cima, said: “The inhalation of the mist from this cloud buzz balloon actually enhances the taste of your favourite spirit. If could be your favourite night club, bar, it could be on a beach, or even your birthday party. I am lucky to be part of this energetic and enthusiastic team who believe in what we have.”

Cloud Buzz, whose headquarters are listed as being in Latvia, will launch its IndieGoGo campaign on 23rd November.
