Like peas and carrots or gin and tonic, some things are just made to go together. For the true-blue Aussie, it’s Christmas and ham. Wrapped in cloth, shoved at the back of the fridge and pulled out incrementally throughout December, the slab of cold-cut meat serves as an oddly primitive source of sustenance for hungover dads who don’t have the energy to fire up the barbeque again. But this year, the humble Christmas ham has copped a serious makeover, courtesy of whisky-lords Fireball. Enter, the Fire-Ham.
Teaming up with the iconic Vic’s Meat, Fireball Whisky has launched a ‘red-hot’ Fireball laced ham that is certain to make Christmas a little more memorable. Inside the limited-edition kit, you’ll find 300ml glaze complete with heart-warming, iconic festive flavours that have been elevated with a Fireball Whisky twist. Forget sugar, spice and everything nice, this spiked Christmas ham is drenched in golden syrup, orange marmalade, apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, cinnamon, allspice, fennel and a generous pour of Fireball Whisky.
“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 partner up with Fireball 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 Fireball Whisky.”
But as we all know, the ham is just one element of a good Aussie Christmas. Aside from gorging yourself on mum’s festive cooking, you need to sit back, relax and enjoy a cheeky beverage or two. Best of all, Fireball has confirmed that all Fire-ham orders will include a bonus 6-pack of Fireball 50ml miniature bottles.
The Vic’s Meat x Fireball Whisky Fire-Ham is available for pre-order from 30 November until 10th December exclusively via Vic’s Meat online store with
delivery available nationwide, but get in quick. Only a strictly limited number of the $100 Fire-ham’s will be up for grabs, so don’t dawdle and wind up ruining Christmas…again.
