In the realm of myths and fantasy there are few creatures as legendary as the unicorn and we’ve long dreamt of riding on the back of one of these magical beasts while on a journey through an enchanted forest.
Well now all those girlhood dreams of owning one of the most magical creatures of the land can become a reality — even if it’s only in the form of its tears. Yes there’s a company which has bottled up bucket loads of unicorn tears and turned them into a sweet gin liqueur.
I mean we had our reservations but, upon discovering that each bottle came with 100 percent edible pieces of silver, real silver, our concerns flew out the door. Of course it would have been nice if they had thrown in a complimentary bag of fairies — fairy dust can do wonders for the soul; it also helps you fly (as anyone who has ever watched Peter Pan already knows).
But what do unicorn tears taste like?
According to Firebox, you can expect “big bundles of candied orange peels, flying saucer sweeties and a hint of maple syrup (sic)” on the palate. If that’s not already enough to make you want to slay herds of unicorns yourself, well, then there’s also the deliciousness of juniper berries and cardamom spice elements found in this potion.
Many unicorns may have been harmed in the making of this product but the tears have magical properties believed to induce euphoria. However extensive consumption may result in a severe headache and loss of balance — so we recommend only indulging in very small amounts at a time.
