I’m gonna have to take a pass on that one

An Australian distiller has taken the concept of recycling to a whole new level by taking the spat-out wine at a wine tasting conference and turning it into a spirit aptly named Kissing a Stranger.

Peter Bignell, of Tasmanian Belgrove Distillery, was first struck by the idea at the Rootstock festival in Sydney, a gathering of winemakers from all over the world promoting sustainable practices in the winemaking industry. He was in a group tasting wines, and as per tradition in wine-tasting, the majority of it was spat out in a bucket. This practice enables tasters to experience a lot of different wines while avoiding drunkenness. Bignell, however, saw it as wasteful.

    Yeah, I read about this too, and thought, I don’t want the stuff that people spit out in my mouth. It can go way down hill from there.

    Kinda reminds me of the movie Fight Club. In the movie they steal fat from a liposuction clinic, make soap with it, then sale the “high end” soap to rich folks. Efectively selling their fat asses back to them. Lol.
