Fungus that grows on whiskey
June 21, 2011 § Leave a comment
Wired Magazine has a fascinating detective story about identifying the “Canadian Whiskey Fungus”, a black mold that covered (covers?) the houses, chain-link fences and street signs of Lakeshore, Ontario, a town that is also home to a whiskey distillery. A really well-written piece that also comes with a brief history of distillation as a bonus. Via Not Exactly Rocket Science.
