Baby mice wine

What would be the most discusting substance you could imagine flavouring your wine with? Well, I’m sure baby mice would not come too far off?

Baby mice wine is a traditional Korean health drink, which is brewed by drowning alive baby mice, maximum three days old, in rice moonshine and letting them to ferment in the bottle for about a year. According to local Korean belief, mouse wine is a cure to just about any illness imaginable, includin asthma and liver problems among others.

If mice wine does not do the trick for you, do not forget to try out the Cobra Schnaps we reported on a few days ago!

Lassie, NOOOO!
