After Pak Ou waterfall we stopped at a village along the Mekong that is famous for making various kinds of Lao Lao (rice whiskey).
You can have your pick of snake, gecko or scorpion. Snake whiskey goes down smooth; like a slithering serpent down your throat, gecko whiskey has legs; much like a good glass of wine, and scorpion whiskey has a good strong sting to it.
Where can I get this scorpion whisky, any chance of mail order through internet, or should I jsut buy a scorpion from my local pet shop and stick ti in a bottle of JD?
Unless you want to go to Laos your best bet is to go get a scorpion from your local pet shop and stick it in a bottle of what ever you want to drink*.
*Warning: May cause blindness and/or death; drink with caution.
Aw man, I’ve had this stuff, the scorpion stuff at least. Wrote a review of it on Liquor Log. Really wasn’t too great tasting, but I go someone to eat the scorpion. You can buy this stuff online from Udon Thani!
I got a bottle on this website http://www.asiansnakewine.com
Quite strong but nice gift for my friend

Which town in Laos was this? I’ll be heading down the Mekong soon and would love to have a look! Would you mind emailing me as I’m on the move and probably won’t remember to come back to this site for the answer!! Thanks!
They sell snake wine at the market in Vientienne, it’s not easy to find but some shops stock it. I think it comes from Vietnam. you can also buy it from a website call http://www.thailandunique.com
