It what could have easily been dismissed as a silly April Fool's prank a drinks company have developed a range of vodka made from cow's milk.
Created by the UK based farmer Jason Barber, the vodka is made by seperating the milk into curds - the curds are used for cheese while the whey is then used to make beer. This whey beer is processed before eventually finishing as vodka.
The maker behind the drink, which is called Black Cow Vodka, say it gives “a sweetness that lingers on the palate, drowning out the alcohol and making this a vodka that is perfect over ice, or just heavily chilled or frozen.”
The vodka is gaining lots of fans across the world with the celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall serving his own cocktails that use the drink.
It costs $44 a bottle and is available from the company's website.
