KYIV, Aug 9 – A team of scientists from the U.K. and Ukraine has made experimental clean alcohol from water and grain taken from the Chornobyl zone, using the homemade method. The vodka has been given the brand name Atomik, according to the State Agency of Ukraine for Managing the Exclusion Zone.
"Water from the Chornobyl wells was used to make a batch of Atomik vodka. Distilled alcohol was diluted with mineral water from a deep aquifer in Chornobyl, which has a similar chemical composition to the ground waters of the Champagne region in France. No radioactive contamination was detected in the water," the agency said.
