Peanut Butter-Flavoured Whiskey Is the Next Creative Tipple You Can Add to Your Liquor Cabinet

It tastes like peanut butter — obviously — with notes of vanilla and caramel popcorn, too.

If you're the type of spirits aficionado who likes their tipples to taste exactly how they always have, then you probably aren't all that fond of creative booze flavours. You mightn't be a fan of bloody shiraz gin, for instance. You likely wouldn't choose to give lamington vodka a try. And, well, peanut butter whiskey isn't going to be your thing either.

For anyone that's now wondering how to make a peanut butter and jelly cocktail, this latest flavour from Sheep Dog Whiskey is probably already having the exact opposite effect. Yes, peanut butter whiskey is now a real thing that exists, and can be sipped by fans of both peanut butter and caramel-hued spirits. The whiskey first made its debut in the US, before launching in Australian bottle shops last year. Now it's available in stores around Aotearoa, so New Zealand-based peanut butter fans (of which there are many) can give it a try.

Taste-wise, you can expect the obvious — so, peanut butter and whiskey — however, this tipple also apparently comes with notes of vanilla and caramel popcorn as well.

And if you're wondering how to drink it, the brand suggests going neat — or adding it to your next espresso martini. Other options include combining it with grape liqueur so that you really can have a PB&J-flavoured tipple, or whipping up a peanut butter old fashioned.

Naturally, if you're not fond of peanuts, this definitely isn't for you.

Sheep Dog Peanut Butter Whiskey is now available from Super Liquor stores around New Zealand for $59 RRP a bottle.
