The Gilpin Family Whisky Converts Biological Waste into Alcohol

I feel as though Gilpin Family Whisky should have kept their key ingredient, urine, on the down low. Granted, they've purified and distilled it, but this whiskey is still made out of human pee.

London designer James Gilpin seems to think so. Yet Gilpin Family Whisky has a greater purpose than simply making money off of a gimmicky premise. According to PSFK, he utilizes "sugar-heavy urine excreted by diabetic patients for fermenting into high-end single malt whiskey." By doing so, he not only sheds light on diabetic problems, but also the loss of an abundant amount of daily biological waste. Stats for Intoxicating Urine Trending: Older & Chilly
