What we're dreaming of...

Updated: Aug 6, 2019

Where are we going after our first bottle of ATOMIK grain spirit ? We're not aiming high (or at least trying not to let our dreams get out of control). We'd like people in the communities affected by Chernobyl to help production of ATOMIK, so the model we're trying to go for is for individuals to do very small scale fermentation and first distillation. We'll then buy this from them at a fair (above market value) price and Kyrylo, out Master Distiller (with help from his dad) will do the final distillation to produce some more bottles (a few hundred at first) of what we think is a wonderful drink. Check out what the barmen in the super-cool cocktail bar Swift in London thought about it when Victoria Gill from the BBC interviewed them.


We have to be honest that there are a lot of obstacles to overcome before we get where we want. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of regulation in Ukraine surrounding both the Chernobyl abandoned areas and alcohol production. So there's a lot of paperwork we need to do before we start production. We're scientists, so we're taking a trial and error (or Conjecture and Refutation) approach to the development of ATOMIK grain spirit.. our plans could change as our dreams are challenged by reality. And we might well mess it up altogether.

I think this experiment is wonderful. Recycling the land to produce something that is unlike anything we have ever had. I look forward on seeing your progress and I wish you all the best of luck!

Guys,


This is such a great project you're doing over there! Please, think about creating a mailing list, so me and other people interested in Atomik Vodka could sign up for updates regarding availability. Then you won't have to worry about getting random e-mails, as well.


Sincerely,

Janis

I hope your dream comes true with ATOMIK! Being that I've always had a fascination with anything that has to do with Chernobyl... I for one would love to try it if it ever comes out for sale. Best wishes from the USA
