Toast Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Original ‘Predator’ With Dutch Bourbon Whiskey
“GET TO THE CHOPPA.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s thick Austrian accent and over-the-top line readings have inspired automatic and enduring pop culture memes. “I’ll be back,” from The Terminator, “Hasta la vista, baby,” from Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and of course, “GET TO THE CHOPPA,” from the original 1987 Predator.
The last is why new Dutch Bourbon Whiskey from Fox and film tie-in specialists Silver Screen Bottling Company is immediately memorable and will have you getting out a shot glass to grab a taste in nothing flat—you can’t see the “Chopper” slogan at the bottom of the label without hearing the Austrian Oak bellowing away.
According to tasting notes in a press release, Dutch “is fit for a person on a mission with a bold taste for adventure. This whiskey will do more than cover you with mud, it will take you to a new level with its full-bodied flavor and hints of vanilla, coconut, and [bergamot].”
Movie flops are always depressing. For fans of Arnold’s Dutch, the new flick’s tanking only confirmed once again that if you don’t have Ah-nuld in the driver’s seat, you don’t really have a proper Predator.
That said, if you jump on it soon you can have a proper shot (or five) of Dutch and round up all six Predator movies and see if they just get better and better as you drink.
