Aussies looking to get into the holiday spirit can host the ultimate Christmas feast to remember with a spiced, glazed ham laced with whisky.
Fireball Whisky has teamed up with Vic’s Meat to create a boozy red-hot Australian Pork “Fire-ham” weighing up to five kilos.
The ham kit comes with the classic orange marmalade glaze – complete with festive flavours like cloves and allspice, dialled up a notch with a whisky twist.
“No Aussie Christmas is complete without a glazed ham at the centre of the table,” Anthony Puharich, Group CEO at Vic’s Premium Quality Meat, said.
“We’re excited to put a playful twist on a classic dish. The festive season is all about good food and having fun, and nothing says fun more than whipping out a bottle of whisky.”
Shoppers around the country can pre-order the show-stopper, valued at $100, via the butchery’s online store with strictly limited numbers for sale.
To celebrate the silly season, the kits all come with a bonus six-pack of Fireball 50ml miniature bottles.
Customers are encouraged to drizzle the whisky over their ham for an “extra hit”.
