Skorppio Vodka: Feel the Sting

Skorppio VodkaNormally, we don't like the idea of having some kind of critter floating in our liquor, but lately the idea has been growing on us. First, we stumbled across Scorpion Mezcal, and we were impressed by the addition of something as badass as a scorpion to something as awesome as Mezcal. Now, we've stumbled across Skorppio, a vodka manufacturer with the same idea.

It's produced and bottled in England, not a place we usually associate with the stingy creepy-crawlers, but we were intrigued by more than the arachnid in the bottle. This stuff is five times distilled from 100% single grain (wheat), and if you're curious about the scorpion:

These scorpions are farm raised, not wild. Their diet and environment is controlled to assure their good quality. The scorpions are processed for human consumption, according to high quality food preparation standards. The toxins that make the mild venom of these particular scorpions when alive, are broken down with a special process. The scorpions are subject to analysis certified by the Chamber of Commerce of Pismo Beach, CA., U.S.A., to confirm that no harmful substances are present. Distilled and bottled under license of Rodrigo Rodriguez.
We're glad the scorpions are farm-raised...we've run into nothing but problems with the free range kind. They're available in multiple states - find out where you can get a bottle at the Skorppio site.

Please tell me these are still available in The States. If so do they sell them in the Midwest? I am willing to drive where ever to get, I hate Vodka but Loving Skorppio!

Fo you know if the liquor in the bottle is the same as this one? Because I already got this snake liquor and I like it:

Thanks for reply.

You're saying what we're all thinking, man. If it was Fresno there's no way I'd trust it, but since it's Pismo, the birthplace of modern science, it's gotta be OK.

Oh! At first I was concerned about the toxins that could be in the drink, but my concerns are put to rest thanks to the worldwide confidence in the exacting and rigorous standards of the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce.
