(Newser) – It’s only a matter of time before PETA jumps all over this: Scottish brewery BrewDog has produced a $770-per-bottle, 55% alcohol beer.. Oh, and it comes packaged inside a dead animal. “The animals used to bottle The End Of History all died of natural causes,” a founder tells the Telegraph, without opining on whether that makes the whole thing more or less gross. A taxidermist preserved seven stoats, four squirrels, and one hare for the packaging—only 12 bottles of The End Of History ale were produced.

“I can think of no grander way to celebrate these animals than for them to be cherished by the lucky owners,” the founder continues. “Better to be celebrated and valued than left to rot.” Not only do the lucky buyers get an animal carcass, but each animal is wearing a kilt, and the creators claim the brew is the world’s strongest beer—and is stronger than whiskey and vodka.
