A confession: When I wrote about the environmental footprint of various kinds of booze a while back, I was really hoping that whiskey would turn out to be the greenest. That's because it's far and away my favorite alcoholic beverage, whether served on the rocks in a comfy bar or sipped from a flask, campfire-side.What I found, though, is that the production of whiskey and other spirits requires much more energy than wine or beer. This is especially true in boutique distilleries that use old-fashioned pot-style stills, which make delicious whiskey but are pretty inefficient when it comes to energy use.

Wow, what's in your whiskey? :w00t:

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I gather you haven't seen this thread yet?

BTW, whiskey and I don't agree all that much. Were I to drink very much of it I could probably see David Icke's Reptilians and the entire planet Nibiru!

A confession: I only read the quote, which sounded bad for whiskey!

This is great news! I'll have to set up a home still, free booze and fuel! :w00t:

I don't mind the smell coming from the distilleries, but I can't stand whiskey so don't touch it :no:
