A Scottish brewery claims to have created the world’s strongest beer – a 65% alcohol drink called Armageddon.
And it is proving so popular that there is a two-week wait for delivery – despite the £40 price tag for a single 330ml bottle.
Created by Scottish firm Brewmeister, the beer is made from crystal malt, wheat and flaked oats and is freeze fermented to bring it to the required ABV.
A pint of the beer contains an alarming 37 units of alcohol – twice the recommended weekly intake for a man.
Brewmeister says the beer should be ‘consumed like a fine whisky’.
A spokesman said: “Despite being 65%, the beer has a lot of flavour – malty, hoppy, slightly sweet and lots of yeast still in the beer.
“Be careful though, smelling it is probably enough to put you over the limit!”
Brewery founder Lewis Shand told Standard Media: “The phrase “delivers a punch” doesn’t quite cut it – delivers a supersonic charged explosion is probably more appropriate.”
