Doom Eternal, the eagerly-awaited next game in the legendary shooter series that helped shape the FPS itself, is out in just a couple of months – so of course, the main thing you’ll want to do to celebrate is drink yourself unconscious with alcohol seasoned with the bones of slaughtered cattle.
As nothing says ‘ripping apart the hordes of Hell’ more than vodka marinated in crushed animal parts, Bethesda has teamed up with UK-based Rebel Distillers to offer Doom Bone Vodka – a limited edition spirit to celebrate the upcoming release of Doom Eternal, which is available to pre-order today from this special website for £45. The first batch of 700ml bottles will ship end of September, although it’s currently only available to customers in the UK, Europe, and Australia.
Rebel Distillers’ founder, Matt McGivern, says of the spirit, “we’re tapping into one of the world’s favorite hobbies, video games, to offer a unique perspective in spirit production. Doom Eternal is a world of flames and demons, a barbeque pit with action – a smoked bone vodka is certainly a new take on spirit provenance.”
Of course, let’s not the most important – and more than slightly unusual – part, the cow bones. These are provided by London butchers The Ginger Pig, “where animal welfare is unparalleled” according to McGivern. The press release describes the additions as “the finest quality and ethically sourced beef bones and organic ingredients.”

“The vodka itself is an organic wheat base,” the press release describes. “Once the bones have been roasted and smoked, the marrow is extracted and macerated in neutral grain alcohol. To extract the best flavour and the clearest spirit, it’s distilled at a very low temperature in a vacuum still to collect the essence of what makes this flavour a delicacy.”
Only a limited amount of the Doom Bone Vodka will be available – so if you’re of legal drinking age, live in one of the supplying countries, are after an undeniably unique slice of Doom merchanise, and aren’t repelled by the cow bones part, go and check it out. Or alternatively, just wait until November 22 for Doom Eternal.
