Here's a drink with a real sting in its tail. Makro is selling Skorppio Vodka [rsp: £15.99 per 70cl bottle], a new-to-the-UK premium vodka that contains an edible scorpion.

Bottled under licence by Rodrigo Rodriguez, the vodka is distilled five times from 100% grain to deliver a "pure and clean" drink.

The scorpions are hatched in Mexico and their venom removed so they are safe for human consumption.
