Pure EGGstravagance! Check out this ‘world record' bottle of CAVIAR-vodka

Austria, Lungau
February 22, 2020 at 18:46 GMT +00:00 · Published

What's being touted by its makers as the world's largest bottle of caviar-vodka was manufactured by Austrian pair Walter Trausner and Walter Gruell, as seen in the Austrian municipality of Lungau on Thursday.

The elaborate drink is made out of 2,200g of black sturgeon caviar and 10kg of grain or wheat for vodka, and natural water, which is later distilled through a special device that leaches the caviar out separately from the water and alcohol.

The vodka was transferred for commercial use into a Magnum six-litre-bottle following production.

Caviar-vodka manufacturer Walter Trausner explained the flavour of the tipple. "Pure, wheat vodka flavour and caviar seasoning that hovers over, not as dominant but as a light hint of this caviar. Fantastic," he stated.

Walter Gruell, co-producer of the beverage, provided the idea and the caviar for the eggstravagant product. "It's the first time worldwide that a distillate from caviar stands out. A six-liter-bottle of caviar-vodka is produced today for the first time here in Lungau," he remarked.

The regular caviar-vodka retails at a price of €3,600 ($3,904) per bottle, which can go up to €36,000 ($39,049) if one's taste leans towards white caviar. It's best prepared ice-cold, though, as the duo demonstrated in a chilly nearby river!
