‘Urine Whiskey’

I chanced upon an information in Listverse that urine of diabetes patients is added to whiskey malt and allowed to age and it is reported to be good!

In India urine therapy is known.

Urine as Medicine.
Urine Therapy

Some people drink their first Urine in the morning.

It is believed to  provide Immunity from diseases, keeps one youthful and in general a good tonic.

Late Prime Minister of India, Morarji Desai and the late Governor of Tamil Nadu Prabhaudas Patwari advoacted urine therapy and admitted to drinking Urine.

“James Gilpin of London produces “Gilpin Family Whiskey,” which takes the urine of elderly diabetes patients and filters it, then adds it to mash. The sugar in the urine begins the fermentation process, and within a few weeks, a perfectly serviceable whiskey is produced—though Gilpin claims it is better if aged awhile in the bottle. Gilpin Family Whiskey is not sold; rather, it is freely distributed as a “public health statement.”

Further information at Biong Boing.

Sugar heavy urine excreted by diabetic patients is now being utilized for the fermentation of high-end single malt whisky for export. The Whisky market is growing faster then any other alcoholic beverage worldwide. With a prevalent genetic weakness being exposed in the northern hemisphere leading to a sharp rise in type two diabetes, economists have found a new exportable commodity to exploit and are keen to capitalize on this resource quickly.

Large amounts of sugar are excreted on a daily basis by type-two diabetic patients especially amongst the upper end of our aging population. As a result of this diabetic patients toilets often have unusual scale build up in the basin due and rapid mould growths as the sugar put into the system acts as nutrients for mould and bacteria growth. Is it plausible to suggest that we start utilizing our water purification systems in order to harvest the biological resources that our elderly already process in abundance?
