If that sounds like a good idea, then a New Hampshire-based distillery has some great news.
Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile will be selling the deer-flavored liquor starting on Nov. 14, Penn Live reports. The unorthodox whiskey will be called The Deerslayer, and it's the latest in the distillery’s unique lineup of drinks.
The Deerslayer, a three-year-aged white whiskey, is reportedly distillied with smoked venison, as well as cranberries, juniper berries, porcini mushrooms and green peppercorns, according to Penn Live. Bottles of the whiskey, which will be made available online, are priced at $65 each.
"Savory and smoky notes characterize this one-of-a-kind spirit, with a subtle spice on the palate and a lingering finish," the distillery writes of its new offering on social media. The brand is also holding a scavenger hunt in honor of The Deerslayer, to be held outside of the distillery's New Hampshire tasting room on its release date.
Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile has previously sold whiskey flavored with unusual items like maple syrup tapped from trees growing in graveyards and beaver castoreum.
Unique whiskeys such as these, however, can be big business.
Fox News previously reported on a massive collection of whiskey that was set to go up for auction in late September and expected to fetch millions of dollars.
According to the collection’s owner Pat (who did not want to reveal his last name), it was never his intention to build a world-class whiskey collection. Instead, he says he only started buying bottles to be opened and enjoyed with his friends and family. Over the years, however, his collection slowly grew and he eventually found himself the owner of 9,000 bottles of whiskey.
Some of the bottles in Pat's collection have already sold for thousands apiece, though the entire lot isn't expected to be auctioned off completely until June 2021.
