Have you always thought that drinking whiskey is great, but you waste so much time by having to lift a glass, swallow the whiskey, and then repeat? Well, whiskey company Glenlivet has found a way to make the exhausting task of drinking whiskey even easier: Tide Pods. Well not actual Tide Pods. We already know those are a great way to get fucked up. These are seaweed-made biodegradable capsules that are filled with whiskey, because you know, fuck whiskey glasses!
According to Newsweek:
The Glenlivet, one of the biggest whisky companies in the world, has unveiled its “Capsule Collection” to coincide with London Cocktail Week in which you drink 23ml of whisky by swallowing a biodegradable capsule made from seaweed.
First we got a Franzia-looking laundry container and now a whiskey company is making Tide Pod-looking capsules.
Well, I guess it’s good for the environment, which is THE ONLY reason I can get on board with this foolishness. That, and I imagine bringing whiskey pods in the shower is much easier than a glass, and you won’t get dirty looks grocery shopping with a shot glass full of whiskey. But if you accidentally do your laundry with one, you may find a bunch of drunk hobos trying to lick you, so there’s that.
“Enjoy them by simply popping them in your mouth for an instant burst of flavor—no need for a glass, ice or cocktail stirrer!,” the company wrote on Instagram while sharing a video detailing the invention.
Of course Twitter immediately started comparing the capsules to Tide Pods:
Amazing I have always said that the problem with whisky is that its served in a glass instead of an edible condom

I feel like this is marketed towards the older end of the tidepod generation.

Well I guess this is good news for haters of whiskey glasses and it taking too damn long to get drunk. I can’t imagine this ends well for most, but hey let’s see where it goes. Booze scientists have also brought us extra strength Four Loko seltzers and Pabst Blue Ribbon posing as a cold brew coffee, so it was about time Tide Pods filled with booze happened.
