According to a recent article on GrubStreet, there’s a new-fangled stick out that uses science and technology to “age” whiskey in just 24 hours. According to the makers of Whiskey Elements, their patented technology replicates three years of aging in just one day using science that essentially puts the barrel in the whiskey instead of the other way around. Brilliant!
The company plans to roll out five flavors, including vanilla, maple, smoke, peat and oak, allowing whiskey connoisseurs to transform a cheap bottle of whiskey to their preferred taste. While this new process may have liquor companies worrying and whiskey snobs like Khaled Shaheen scoffing, it seems like a brilliant idea for those who can’t afford the good stuff or who simply like the idea of being hands-on in creating their beverage concoction.
According to the magic stick manufacturers, their transformative process should even help to alleviate the nasty hangover that often comes with cheap booze by reducing amounts of the chemical that causes the effect. Yay! Better flavor, less cost and no hangover. Sounds like a perfect combination.
