Recycled Urine to make Whisky...

I'm just browsing through and there are loads of interesting topics and information..but this one is way off the hook!


Just can't help but share~


Gilpin Whisky is Recycled from Diabetic’s Urine


James Gilpin has Type 1 Diabetes — his pancreas doesn’t work, forcing him to take shots of insulin to process glucose from food. Gilpin got to thinking about elderly patients with diabetes, like his grandmother, who secrete tons of unprocessed medicine and sugar in their urine. A great idea dawned upon him — well, perhaps it’s a gross idea but we’ll leave that up to you — and he started the Gilpin Family Whisky project, a high end line of single malt whiskey made from the sugar-laden urine of people with diabetes. His grandmother was the first patient to recycle her pee into whiskey!

I guess it should be okay shouldn't it? I mean there are places that recycles waste water to be used as drinking water. The level of *ewwww* factor in waste water should be higher than the *ewww* factor in urine.. right? 

If you read carefully from the article, it's said that it is more of an art stunt than a product. Can you imagine buying whisky of the rack, bringing it back home just to find out that it is probably from your neighbours contribution?! 

*FAINTS* 

Not saying it is a bad idea. Just kind of gross the first time you see or hear about it. But have to give credits to the people who have the guts and the brains to come out with this out of the world ideas. haha
