17 People Suffering From "Malört Face"
Apparently, there is a liquor from Chicago that is famous for being absolutely repulsive. You make a very specific face the first time you drink it.
From the Jeppson's Malört Liquor label:
"Most first-time drinkers of Jeppson Malort reject our liquor. Its strong, sharp taste is not for everyone. Our liquor is rugged and unrelenting (even brutal) to the palate. During almost 60 years of American distribution, we found only 1 out of 49 men will drink Jeppson Malort. During the lifetime of our founder, Carl Jeppson was apt to say, 'My Malort is produced for that unique group of drinkers who disdain light flavor or neutral spirits.'
It is not possible to forget our two-fisted liquor. The taste just lingers and lasts - seemingly forever. The first shot is hard to swallow! PERSERVERE. Make it past two 'shock-glasses' and with the third you could be ours...forever"
From the "Malört Face" Flickr pool:
This is a place to post pictures of peoples' faces after they drink Jeppson's Malort. Malort is some nasty stuff and I think you can only buy it in Chicago (or around Chicago)
I have heard it described as "if you drank water out of an ash tray"
