It’s been more than three decades since Arnold Schwarzenegger — playing tough-as-nails Major Alan “Dutch” Schaefer — was rolling on the ground in pain, yelling that iconic line that has since been crystallised in cinema history, “GET TO DA CHOPPA!” A line that has been pointedly, unabashedly referenced in 2018’s reboot.
Well, it seems like we’ll be getting to the chopper alright — well, hopefully, we’re less likely to be gunned down by lurking Predators after all — with Dutch Bourbon Whiskey, which claims to “take you to a new level with its full-bodied flavor and hints of vanilla, coconut, and bergamont” at US$34.99 a bottle. Admittedly, if you’re actually fleeing a pursuing Predator, it’s probably best to do so sober.
The drink is also said to be “fit for a man on a mission with a bold taste for adventure who “ain’t got time to bleed””, which… plays up that very antiquated-rough-and-tumble idea of masculinity, although considering how it’s based off Schwarzenegger’s Predator, we kind of understand why it’s marketed that certain way.
The drink is now available on DutchWhiskey.com, and will be shipped out sometime in April 2019.
