Vodka From Chernobyl?
A new vodka is about to hit the market.
It’s made by a group of artisans, (aka scientists) who created vodka using grain and water from Chernobyl’s nuclear disaster exclusion zone. Named “Atomik,” this vodka is the first consumer product from the Chernobyl site, where a 1986 nuclear reactor exploded, exposing millions to toxic radioactive levels. The Ukrainian scientists wanted to see if grains from the site were radioactive. Someone wants to use the site to grow crops in the future. Before you start breaking out the shot glass, the scientists say that the booze’s distillation process reduces the radioactivity to an “undetectable level,” making the vodka safe to drink.
So… Are you gonna try it??
