If there’s one thing that humanity has been great at, it would be figuring out how to make alcohol from mundane objects. Take, for instance, the Black Cow Pure Milk Vodka, the world’s only vodka made entirely from the milk of grass grazed cows.
So here’s the story. Some English farmer bloke in West Dorset or wherever took a look around at all of his fellow farmers and said, “Jesus, there’s got to be more out of life than all of this bloody milk, cheese and ice cream.” He could either take up drinking or kill two birds by figuring out how to convert all of that stupid cow milk into something a wee bit more valuable.
“Bloody sod, I’ll bet I could make booze out of this!”
Well no, that’s not the official story, but we’re reading between the lines. The official story is that the West Dorset farmer separated his curds from his whey just like days of yore and used the curds for all the boring stuff, the cheeses and whatnot. But whey to go with the whey! He figured out how to ferment it into beer (give any kid a chemistry set and eventually you get booze) using a special yeast (special, indeed) and triple filtering it and treating with some secret blending process. Something like that. The details are sketchy, but not the result.
And hell, if science can figure out how to make vodka out of potatoes, why not the world’s first pure milk vodka? And why not try a glass? At the very least, you’re getting your calcium.
