People Are Trying To Make Alcohol From Apples In Chernobyl

There are about 1000000 different alcohol companies out there. Why are we trying to make alcohol that is made anywhere near Chernobyl? Did I have any idea what happened before the HBO series? No, for some reason, I was never taught that in high school or history was always 1st or 2nd period, and I was still pretty stoned during those classes. So I might’ve just been super stoned, and Chernobyl didn’t register.

The first bottles of an “artisanal spirit” made using apples grown near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant have been seized by Ukrainian authorities. The Chernobyl Spirit Company said 1,500 bottles of Atomik alcoholic drink were confiscated on 19 March and taken to the Kyiv Prosecutor’s office.  Officers took the shipment from a truck at a distillery in the Carpathians. The spirit, its producers say, is Chernobyl’s first consumer product since the 1986 nuclear disaster.


Atomik does have a nice ring to it, but it might be a little much. I believe in making jokes about fucked up situations, but having an actual drink is a little strange. “Hey, I’ll take a shot of Atomik. I heard that it has glowing reviews.” Maybe drinking a beverage from a nuclear area will make you extra fucked up, but drink more four loko’s, and you won’t risk growing a 3rd arm.

When we tasted the first Atomik vodka martini in 2019, Prof Smith, who is based at Portsmouth University, explained that it was “no more radioactive than any other vodka”.


I want to put Svedka and Skol up against this Atomik vodka because I’m willing to bet Atomik is still better. I wouldn’t drink vodka for years, and it was 100% because of horrible experiences with Svedka and Skol. High school parties with handles of Skol are a recipe for puking.

Would you try an alcohol called Atomik that was made near Chernobyl?
