Glyph Molecular Whiskey Aims To Make Lab Made Whiskey Tasty
I saw this first on Vice News.
"Endless West is a self-described team of “scientists, sommeliers, writers, chefs and grad school dropouts” with a simple but very complex goal in mind – to create the next generation of wines and spirits. It is, quite simply, an attempt to take the age old process of aging spirits like whiskey and creating something through science that could be just as “renowned … without conventional production methods.” It is through this thought process and creativity they’ve unveiled Glyph Molecular Whiskey."
"Step 1: Map – First, we create the profile of our desired spirit — its precise flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel — and identify the constellation of molecules (or notes) responsible for those characteristics.
Step 2: Source – Next, we gather those molecules from resource-efficient natural sources — for example, esters found in fruit, sugars found in cane and corn, and acids found in citrus and wood.
Step 3: Create – Lastly, we blend our ingredients together in small batches. Glyph is produced and hand-bottled in the historic Dogpatch neighborhood in San Francisco.
Step 4: Enjoy – Glyph is bottled and ready to be shared."
Well it had to happen didn't it? Scientists are now learning to replicate whiskey in a "test tube". Presumably they can replicate any whiskey...the more expensive the more profitable. And wine too.
That goes with a whole host of objects replicated with 3D printers. Remember the Star Trek series where food was served up from replicators? Is that next?
Soon we won't need people to make anything. No matter -- those humans can be cloned too. And their human DNA can be modified so they don't get sick. Create a master race of strong humans to eat replicated food and wine and live in a replicated house. I wonder if the military is considering the potential.
Okay, I digress -- my mind is wandering. I don't drink whiskey. Just beer (the right kind) and wine. Maybe too much of it at times when Trump tweets.
