More than three decades after the Chernobyl Power Plant disaster, a group of scientists developed a spirit that uses rye grown on land in the abandoned exclusion zone. The team have dubbed themselves The Chernobyl Spirit Company and began the project to show that alcohol made from crops grown near the defunct power plant are safe to consume. The spirit is triple distilled and then diluted using uncontaminated groundwater drawn from an aquifer in the town of Chernobyl a little more than 6 miles from the defunct power plant. After meticulous testing, no radiative isotopes such as plutonium, americium, cesium or strontium show up in the finished product. So far, only one bottle exists as a proof of concept.
