School Scientists Making Chernobyl Grown Vodka
Written by Tony Schultz on August 12, 2019
Scientists from the U.K.’s University of Portsmouth have announced plans to make an artisan vodka from crops grown near the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine. But despite branding their new product with the name “ATOMIK,” scientists say the vodka is actually “radioactive free.” They say distilling it actually reduces any impurities in the original grain. And it’s all reportedly for a good cause, as the school says 75 percent of profits will be given back to the affected community to help with the economic recovery of those living in and around the abandoned areas.
