Devil's Piss would have been a better name.....
- Two pals who brewed the world’s strongest beer have unveiled an even more lethal recipe – after fans said the first one tasted too weak.
Lewis Shand and John McKenzie, of Banffshire’s Brewmeister Brewery, broke the record with 65% alcohol Armageddon last year. They sold 6000 bottles around the world but some fans said it didn’t taste strong enough. So Lewis and John bought a new brewery and spent nine months creating Snake Venom, with a head-spinning 67.5% alcohol content.
Lewis said yesterday: “Snake Venom is definitely sharper in taste. With Armageddon, we actually tried to disguise the taste by making it quite oily. “We thought if it was too strong, people wouldn’t like it. But the problem we found is that people said we shouldn’t have tried to cover up the intensity. “Some even said they didn’t believe it was 65%, so this time we thought we’d go full out. We were too nice last time.”
Snake Venom has a warning label on its neck to tell buyers not to drink too much at once.
