Atomik Vodka Is Made From Grain Grown At Chernobyl

I mean, just....why?

Scientists have created Atomik, a brand of artisan vodka made from rye grown on land in Ukraine abandoned since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, to help the people living there.

The first ever bottle of Atomik vodka has been triple distilled then diluted to 40 per cent using uncontaminated groundwater drawn from an aquifer in the town of Chernobyl, 6 miles south of the defunct Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant.

After rigorous testing, no radiative isotopes such as plutonium, americium, cesium or strontium show up in the finished product.

Only a trace of carbon-14 can be found in the first bottle of Atomik, a level that is found naturally in alcohol.
