Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
Just in time for both the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
and the 80th anniversary of Prohibition's repeal, Ron Burgundy's
Scotchy Scotch is here.
While the much-anticipated sequel
isn't due in theaters until Dec. 18, the movie's official Scotch is in stores now, so there's plenty of time to hone your Anchorman 2
drinking game before you head to the movies. The Scotch is called “Great Odin’s Raven Special Reserve,” which any Anchorman
fan can tell you is a reference to the time Will Ferrell's character
accidentally cursed out the city during a broadcast.
Ron Burgundy Blended Scotch Whisky
Riviera Imports, the company behind the product, insists that
the liquor is "not just for Anchorman
fans," claiming that Ron Burgundy Blended Scotch Whisky isn't a novelty, even though it started as a joke in the film. According to the brand, it is "a fine Scotch product... crafted and bottled in Scotland from a 60% malt and 40% grain blend by Old St. Andrews Distillery, featuring whiskies from Speyside, Highlands and Islay."
A 750 ml bottle of the stuff costs about $25, which is far more than a pint of Ben & Jerry's limited-edition Ron Burgundy’s Scotchy Scotch Scotch ice cream
, but it does have 100 percent more alcohol.
