There’s Literally a River in Scotland Flowing with Whiskey

More than 6000 liters of whisky was let loose into Scotland’s River Ayr. Apparently, a road tanker carrying 27, 500 liters of the spirit was ordered via computer to pump into the wrong vat, resulting in an overspill into the roadway by the river.

Before you book a one-way flight to Scotland or assume this is the next destination for Holy Ship (!!!) — oh, we know you –environmental groups are already on deck making sure this doesn’t happen again. Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Limited was fined £12,000 (US $20,000) for the mishap and polluting the river. Procurator fiscal Sara Shaw chided the company, telling STV News: “The risk of pollution of the river should have been one of the considerations at the forefront of the company’s policies.”
