Asian snake wine and scorpion wine can be found in mainly in Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, or Cambodia.

In these ornamental bottles, cobras or scorpions are pickled in rice wine liquor and herbs. The wine is left to ferment for months before being sold, in order to remove the poisonous effects of the snake venom.

These wines are also said to be natural medicines used to treat back pain and rheumatism. Asian snake and scorpion wines do not come cheap though, so save up to afford these luxurious liquors!
