Indulge in the unexpected harmony of whisky, coffee liqueur, and Irish cream that defines the unique and unforgettable Duck Fart Shot experience.

Traditionally, the whiskey used in a Duck Fart Shot is Crown Royal, but you can use any type of whiskey you have on hand.
The name of the shot is said to have come from a funny anecdote involving the resident bartender and an older woman who were sampling recipes one night. Today, the Duck Fart Shot is a popular drink in bars and at parties around the world.
The Duck Fart shot is a popular cocktail that originated in Alaska. According to Valise Mag, the shot was first created in 1987 by a bartender named Dave Schmidt at a bar called the Peanut Farm in Anchorage. The story goes that a 70-year-old woman walked into the bar and asked for a shot of tequila, followed by a B-52 and then a Grasshopper. It was a slow night, so the two decided to experiment with some trial-tiered tipples. Schmidt poured Kahlua coffee liqueur and Baileys Irish cream into a shot glass using the spoon method and dubbed it the “Duck Fart”.
The shot became an instant hit and gained popularity throughout Alaska. Today, the Duck Fart shot is still a staple in many bars in Alaska, and it has even spread to other parts of the world. The shot is typically made with equal parts Kahlua, Baileys Irish Cream, and Crown Royal whiskey, although variations exist.
Despite its unusual name, the Duck Fart shot is a delicious and popular cocktail that is enjoyed by many. It is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of bartenders, who are always looking for new and exciting ways to mix drinks.
