Living in Finland and having previously written about Finnish Wine I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write about Finnish Whiskey. You heard it right there may be a nascent Whiskey Industry hiding in the Finnish woods. Check out the Wikipedia page on Finnish Whiskey and you’ll see there are currently two producing Whiskeys. The two distilleries are Panimoravintola Beer Hunter’s and Teerenpeli Distillery.
Up to 9,000 homes in Scotland will be powered by 7.2MW biomass combined heat and power plant using the ‘draff’ matter from the whisky-making process. (via the guardian)
