Energy from Scotch!

Posted by Reese on 2010-05-25 @ 08:08am

As you likely well know, I’m a big fan of Scotch.  I’m also a big fan of alternative energy sources.  This month the Bruichladdich Distillery is combining those two loves of mine in what can best be described as a Voltronesque feat of awesomeness.  In short they’ve purchased an anaerobic digester which will process it’s pot ale into biogas.  This biogas will then be used to provide almost 80% of the distillery’s yearly energy needs.  Pretty cool.  Check out the article on CNN.com for the full details.
