    Thousands of litres of whisky flushed down drain in Dumbarton

    The mistake happened at a Chivas Brothers bottling plant. Thousands of litres of whisky have been flushed down the drain by accident at a bottling plant in Dumbarton.

    It is understood the mix-up happened at Chivas Brothers during the night shift on Tuesday while equipment was being cleaned.

    Instead of draining away waste water, the workers on duty somehow flushed out thousands of litres of bulk whisky.

    The rest of this sad story:

    Those would be the happiest sewer rats in all the land.

    Who knows if it was a accident...

    Maybe some dudes in the sewers had basins.

    Now I could have taken that right off their hands. No need to flush it. I could have distilled all that alcohol right on over to another copper vat and mailed them back the water.
