The whisky distillers of Scotland are in revolt over an ‘alcohol free’ creation.

ArKay (pictured) is being promoted as delivering the ‘exceptional taste of whisky without the alcohol content’ and ideal for teetotallers or those worried about drinking and driving.

Significantly, it has been declared as Halal certified, which opens up the possibility of huge sales around the globe in Muslim countries and the Middle East.

However, a spokesman for the Scotch Whisky Association said: ‘It is not possible to make alcohol-free whisky.

This company is trying to exploit whisky’s reputation with highly irresponsible marketing.’

Real Scotch whisky is a simple creation of water and barley, which grows well in the cool climate and summer rains that are common north of the border.

Each distillery’s unique taste is delivered by the way the barley is dried, often in peat kilns, together with the way the whisky is carefully aged over many years, often in oak casks.

ArKay, made by a Florida-based company called Scottish Spirits Ltd and apparently produced in factories in Panama, has a water base to which a variety of chemicals, flavours and colourings are added.

It is due to go on sale around the world on December 1. In Britain it will cost £10 a bottle and £4 for a can.

Solution: If people stick to drinking the world's first alcohol-free whisky over the festive period then they need not worry about suffering from a nasty hangover

A spokesman for ArKay said: 'The exceptional taste of whisky without the alcohol content makes it a perfect beverage day or night.



'ArKay has zero per cent alcohol and it is designed to allow individuals with medical conditions or with religious beliefs that prohibit alcohol consumption, to drink.

'Imagine being able to enjoy your favorite whisky drink at parties without worrying about drinking and driving.

'ArKay tastes and looks exactly like traditional whisky. It is suitable for drinking straight-up, on the rocks, or with your favourite mixers.'

This is sooooo wrong. Frst to my Scots cousins it's spelled Whiskey, not whisky. Do you not remember cousin, we taught the Frenchies to make cognac, that's why it's called Hennesey, not called Avec marda. Where is John Belushi when we need him.

More proof of 2+2=5.  If it doesn't have alcohol in it, it's not whiskey.  You can call it orange juice if you want, but it doesn't make it so.  Crazy people.  :liar:

Sounds like Star Trek's "synthehol":

Quote:Synthehol (a portmanteau of "synthesized" and "alcohol") is a chemical variant of alcohol. It appears to have the same taste and smell as "real" alcohol to most individuals, but none of the deleterious effects associated with alcohol for most humanoids, such as debilitating intoxication, addiction, and alcohol poisoning.

It's ironic, but I  think that scotch has killed more people than the mohammedans.
