Peanut Butter Whiskey Exists And We're Going Nuts Over It

Peanut butter goes so well on so many things. On a sandwich with jelly, for one; in a cup mixed with chocolate or a cookie sprinkled with sea salt. Heck, it even just works on an index finger, am I right?

But one place we're not used to seeing it is in whiskey. Yet, we recently spotted it in a grocery store in all its aromatic glory: Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey. Yeah, we went a bit nuts.

It's rich, it's creamy, and it's utterly unique. We're ready to put the others aside (ahem, Fireball) and usher in something smoother, sweeter, and altogether peanut buttery-er for the holiday season.

There's nothing screwy about this.

These peanut buttery dreams were developed by Skrewball as a celebration of an unlikely pairing.

With their popular hashtag #GetSkrewed, they encourage their customers to live on edge and take chances, even when it means going against the grain with a seemingly odd drink.

This nutty concoction was born out of some classic bar orders.

Created by Steven and Brittany Yeng, a husband-and-wife duo who own a watering hole in Ocean Beach, California, the combination of whiskey and peanut butter was originally a shot they created for customers. But over time, the duo realized it would make for a great spirit, and Skrewball was born.

It would, of course, work well in a PB&J shot or mixed with a banana liqueur, but on its own, it's a nutty delight.

It's rich, savory, and irresistible.

The blend is simple, yet effective — it's whiskey blended with peanut butter flavoring.

It boasts notes that combine hazelnut tones with peanut butter, making it a special combination of sweet and savory, packed with that classic whiskey charm. So yeah, it packs a punch.

You'll want to usher this nut into your gut.

When you really think about it — and we have — the cocktail possibilities with this whiskey are endless. There are margaritas, martinis, and even hot toddies that are just begging to be made with this spirit. You'll have to excuse us, the inspiration has struck and the bar is calling.

Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is available on and in select stores for around $30 for a 750ml bottle, and $37 for a one-litre bottle.
