We have begun sales of the very first small batch of our unique 5x distilled Apple Spirit (42% ABV) via the Buy page on this website. Please note we are currently only able to deliver to UK addresses. 

 

The Chernobyl Spirit Company is a Social Enterprise: 75% of profits will go to Chernobyl affected communities in Ukraine and to wildlife conservation.You can subscribe to our mailing list for updates on our progress here.

There's an age-verification popup so if you can't get on the Buy tab you may have popups blocked. Unblocking popups or trying on another device usually works. Finally, if you want to "checkout as guest" and PayPal isn't letting you, trying on another device often works for that as well. Any problems please email info@atomikvokda.com.

 

Please keep on reading for more information about our project.

Who we are...

The Chernobyl Spirit Company is a Social Enterprise aiming to produce high quality artisan spirits ("moonshine") from land in the areas of Ukraine abandoned after the Chernobyl accident. More than thirty years after the accident, we believe that what these areas need most is economic development and management of the unique wildlife resource the abandoned areas represent. At least 75% of profits from sales of ATOMIK will go to supporting communities in the affected areas and wildlife conservation.

The Science..

Our group of Ukrainian and UK scientists has been studying the transfer of radioactivity to crops both in the main Exclusion Zone (CEZ) and in the Narodychi District within the Zone of Obligatory Resettlement, where land can't officially be used for agriculture, but people still live.

The research shows that in many areas land could now be used to produce crops which are safe to eat. As every chemist knows, distillation of fermented crops leaves many heavier elements in the waste product so the distillate alcohol is much more radioactively "pure" than the original grain. We have used distillation to reduce radioactivity in the crop even further to make a product from Chernobyl which we hope people will want to consume.
