Ladies and gentlemen, we have some urgent breaking news.
In anticipation of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, you can now give the gift of Ron Burgundy scotch this holiday season. Aptly named "Great Odin's Raven," the scotch comes courtesy of Rivera Imports, a totally real marketer and importer of spirits, wines, and beers from around the world.
According to the company, the product is no joke.
"It is a fine Scotch product more than comparable in quality to other blended Scotches at its price point. It is crafted and bottled in Scotland from a 60 percent malt and 40 percent grain blend by Old St. Andrews Distillery, featuring whiskies from Speyside, Highlands and Islay. Not just for Anchorman fans, Ron Burgundy Blended Scotch Whisky is produced for budding Scotch connoisseurs and traditional Scotch enthusiasts alike."
The company also says the scotch will be available in a 750 milliliter size only and will cost about $25.
Of course, this isn't the first Ron Burgundy-inspired product to hit store shelves as the world gears up for a second dose of Papa Burgundy. In October, Ben & Jerry's announced its "Scotchy Scotch Scotch" ice cream, and Chandler's SanTan Brewery has been making its Sex Panther beer since 2011.
Though we haven't tasted the drink yet, we assume it's going to be best enjoyed while listening to some jazz flute and hanging out with your best canine friend (who may or may not be named Baxter). It might be so good, you'll feel like you're in the glass case of emotion.
Don't act like you're not impressed.
