In the latest installment of Things Being Taken Over by Unicorns, we present you with unicorn tears gin liqueur. It's officially the most whimsical way to get tipsy, and yes, it's just as real as the unicorns it's made from. Firebox, the company behind the magical alcohol, describes it as "a mythical spirit made from the tears of humanely raised unicorns" and sells it in 16-ounce bottles for $50. In order to bottle up the unicorns' tears, the company claims that it feeds the "beautiful beasts entire wheelbarrows of citrus fruit, oranges, juniper berries, bunches of coriander, and sticks of liquorice. We then force down this concoction with a giant glittery pestle, like fantasy foie gras, and reap the tears as they fall."
The bottled gin has a shimmery light-pink hue — it even has iridescent glittery liquid inside. The only downside? It doesn't ship to the US. Here's hoping the unicorns over in the UK appreciate our unicorn sprinkles, unicorn cakes, and unicorn doughnuts and grace us with the presence of their gin soon. For those able to access the mystical beverage, we feel it's best served with unicorn macarons.
