By now, you’ve probably heard about Durian Whisky, which went viral when it was launched in Singapore recently. But the real question is, is it actually whisky?
Here’s what we know about Durian Whisky. It is made from 100 per cent Musang King flesh, contains added ethanol and sugar, has 18 per cent alcohol base volume (ABV), and costs S$98 for a 250ml bottle and S$198 for a 750ml bottle.
According to a post by Singaporean whisky blog Dramocracy, Durian Whisky is actually made by a Malaysian company called Tropical Wine Sdn Bhd, which lists a durian liqueur product called Dorian-Inside on its online store (www.tropicalwine.com.my) for RM238 (S$78.60).
Like Durian Whisky, Dorian-Inside is also made from 100 per cent Musang King flesh, has added ethanol and sugar, and is also 18 per cent ABV. Hmm, what a coincidence.
