Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Alcohol made from wood

Researchers at Japan’s Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute have created alcohol made from tree bark, which they say resembles the qualities of an alcohol aged in wooden barrels.

The 15% ABV alcoholic beverage is made by pulverising wood into a creamy paste and then adding yeast and an enzyme to start the fermentation process.

The team said that the alcohol presents better as a distilled beverage, with 4kg of cedar wood producing around 3.8 litres of liquid.

The government institute aims to commercialise the product with a private-sector partner and have the liquor on shelves within three years.
