Re: [Distillers] BBC E-mail: Siberia ravaged by bootleg vodka
- Hi Wal,Its very annoying for us distillers to read this innaccurate reporting.It,s not tainted vodka, in fact it,s not vodka at all. The majority of people who drink this crap know full well that it is not vodka, in fact there is a long history of drinking anti freeze, industrial spirit and believe it or not fire lighter in the former ussr. Of course our politicians who get high building the nanny state will take every opportunity to interfere in our lives in the name of health and safety. I would think that the causualties from this latest so called epidemic are normal for russia the only difference is that with the collapse of the ussr it is now reported in the media. Let,s hope this story fades and leaves us in peace to pursue our hobby of trying to produce the most potable and pure distillations.
