One of our readers just tipped us off to what is quite possibly the worst whisky on the face of the planet.

Instead of being made from clear spring water, this whiskey is made from the sugary urine of elderly diabetics.

No, really. We’re not making this up.

According to Wired, urine-whisky creator James Gilpin says that the product “won’t be widely marketed conventionally. In fact, it’s more of an art piece, asking, Gilpin says, whether it’s ‘plausible to suggest that we start utilising our water purification systems in order to harvest the biological resources that our elderly already process in abundance’.”

(Thanks for the tip, Chris!)
