Distilling OREOs Into A Drinkable Liquor

This is a video of the folks from the Crowded Barrel Whiskey Company in Austin, Texas created a drinkable spirit by fermenting and distilling OREO cookies. Want to make your own without all the hassle? Just mash up a bunch of OREOs in the bottom of a glass of vodka. That’s what I did, and then I went to rehab.

The team first blended bags of the cookies, mixed them with water and fast-acting yeast, and let the mixture ferment.

The resulting distilled spirit stood at 145 proof, with strong notes of cream cheese, sourdough, and dirty chocolate. They didn’t seem to hate it too much.

Well, there you have it — “They didn’t hate it too much.” Honestly, in this day and age, that’s about the best you can hope for in any situation. Not hating something too much is practically the new loving it, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if McDonald’s changed their slogan to reflect the times.
