Launched in 2005, Lucky Buddha beer is named after the worshiped religious figure with the distinctive bottle shaped to represent a Buddha holding a gold ingot over its head. Thankfully the Buddests are laid back pacifists – can you imagine the kick back if the was another deity.
Pronounced ‘Thia-Co’ this “premium liqueur with sake” is gimmicky. If its green hue (comprising “certified color FD&C blue #1 and FD&C yellow #5”) were not lurid enough, Ty.Ku comes complete with an LED light embedded in the base of its triangular bottle. Just “press center to activate” the glow.
