Of all the weird vodkas we've seen over the last year — and that includes the "world's hottest vodka" and some flavor combinations that boggle our minds — a vodka made from cow's milk might just top them all. 

The "Black Cow" (well played) vodka was developed by a dairy farmer in the U.K.; James Barber separates the milk from his 250 dairy cows into curds and whey, and ferments it into beer to turn the sugar into alcohol. Then, the beer is triple-distilled and blended into the final product. The Daily Mail reports that the formula for milk vodka took him three years to perfect. 

Barber told The Daily Mail that Black Cow was inspired by a documentary he watched about Siberians making vodka from yaks' milk. And suppposedly, the Black Cow is smooth and has a distinct "creamy texture" — because that's exactly what you want to think of when drinking a vodka cocktail. Supposedly, Daniel Craig and Liz Hurley love the vodka; we just want to know what the vodka experts have to say about it.
