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.

    I have a patented drinks accessory design that I need to set before the eyes of people familiar with the drinks industry. I am a retired Forex trader and have no knowledge of the drinks industry apart from enjoying a pint or two of lager. A business amateur I admit, but as an ex- trader I do recognise a good thing when I see it . Our survey indicates a 80/85 approval rating by social drinkers for this innovation. There are millions of people globally ready to use the product of this design, and my challenge is finding a way of getting it to them. Hit the 3 lines top left and take a look at the “brochure” on the website…all will be revealed.

    I was worried about the marine wildlife when I saw the plastic rings. I really wanted to be a part of saving Marine wildlife. So I decided to Buy a Photodegradable Six pack rings applicator and I got it with the help of my friend. With the help of this machine I’m able to reduce the harmful plastic usage.
