Now, you can also add whiskey to the list, thanks to Missouri-based Holladay Distillery, which has created what they say is the world’s first spicy pickle-flavored whiskey. Holladay says Whicked Pickle, a dill pickle-flavored whiskey with a peppery heat, is best enjoyed as a shot, straight or chilled, but it can also be mixed into cocktails as a substitution for vodka or gin. You can also use it in a bloody mary, or as the distillery calls it, a Whicked Mary.
First introduced in test markets in three states, the brand is moving forward with a national launch beginning in January 2021, so you will soon be able to find it at a store near you. The 70-proof whiskey has 35% alcohol by volume. It is sold in a 750-ml bottle.
