This drinks brand is selling vodka made with beef bones

We’ve had spirits distilled from quinoa, cow’s milk and red ants, but one drinks brand has taken unusual provenance to another level by making vodka with smoked bone marrow.

Rebel Distillers has launched a limited edition Bone Vodka in the UK, European Union and Australia to celebrate the release of Doom Eternal, the latest addition to the blockbuster Doom video game franchise.

Doom is a first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was first released worldwide on Microsoft Windows in 1993. The latest game in the series is due to launch worldwide on 22 November.

The first batches of the bone vodka will be released towards the end of September.

It is “a world of flames and demons, a barbecue pit of action,” according to Rebel Distillers, which has sourced cow bones from London-based butcher The Ginger Pig to make the vodka.

Rebel Distillers founder Matt McGivern said the brand is “tapping into one of 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.”

The vodka itself is made from an organic wheat base. The bone marrow is then roasted and smoked before being extracted and added to neutral grain alcohol to macerate.

It is then distilled at a very low temperature in a vacuum still to ensure the clearest spirit and purest flavour is achieved.

The vodka is being offered on Rebel Distillers’ website at £45 per 70cl.
