The Elder Scrolls Skooma Becomes a Reality With Limited Edition Absinthe
Peter Donnell / 8 months ago
Stuck for that last-minute gift idea for the Elder Scrolls fan in your life? Or perhaps you’re the fan and you’re looking for the next big thing to add to your collection? How about a bottle of Skooma! The magical drink found in the world of the gaming series, The Elder Scrolls, albeit, in the game is fiendishly addictive. This real-world take on the drink, however, is Absinthe, albeit that doesn’t make it much less lethal.
“Skooma, an illegal narcotic that is used throughout Tamriel, and is known globally among players throughout the world. Here lies an exciting opportunity to taste this unique liquid. Skooma is a make-believe drink, but Absinthe has a similar history; so, we’ve developed a fantastic Rouge Absinthe. This is the first time a spirit like this has been produced, and we will look to sell this globally.”
Skooma Roughe Absinthe
Skooma is a 70cl ‘Rouge Absinthe’ @ 69% ABV in a stunning Ceramic bottle as a harp back to the mystical nature of the game. The liquid has already picked up a Silver at the UK Spirits Masters (the highest awarded Absinthe in 2021) and a Bronze at the San Francisco world spirits, which is the world’s oldest spirit competition. The product is unique with the ingredients and the fact that it’s a rouge rather than traditional green.
That’s right, 69%, so if you do get tempted to crack this bottle open… take it easy, or you’ll have a mighty Skooma hangover.
Elsweyr Bottle Design
Inspired by ancient glazing techniques of nomadic tribes, this bottle represents the spirit of adventure cultivated in The Elder Scrolls. Choose your own path, hone your skills, and celebrate your victories with the rare and dangerous taste of Skooma. Cherished and perfected by generations of the Dunmer, this unique drink is distilled from moon-sugar and sacred to those who worship the moon and stars.
The bottle itself is nostalgic of the muddled colour pallet of Skooma in the game (Purple and Blue) as a secret, prohibited potion (Consumable), however with a modern and luxury twist perfectly suited to the tastes of mortals. Though an illicit substance within Tamriel, Skooma fosters a deep connection with its users. We chose Absinthe for this reason.
This bottle is intended to be kept and treasured; its aesthetics will charm you just like the Skooma inside. Fresh from the distilleries of Elsweyr, plan your own adventure, while enjoying this ultimate taste of The Elder Scrolls.
