British scientists presented ATOMIK, the craft vodka made of water from Chornobyl exclusion zone. The press office of Ukraine's State Agency for Management of the Exclusion Zone reported that on its Facebook page.
The team of scientists used wheat and water from water-well holes in the exclusion zone. The distilled alcohol was dissolved in this water. The report says that the water was clean, containing no signs of radioactive contamination; the paper was positively assessed by the Ukrainian side.
The drink will be produced from the wheat grown in the area of unconditional compulsory evacuation. 75 percent of the income will be paid to the community of those who suffered consequences of the 1986 nuclear disaster in Ukraine.
According to the State Agency for Management of the Exclusion Zone, Chornobyl Alcohol Company will be created to sell the licensed product. In order to start production, several legal issues must be solved. The experimental production will follow.
