Researchers at Japan’s Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute have invented a way of producing an alcoholic drink made from wood.
They are able to preserve the specific flavour of each tree’s wood. So far, they have produced tipples from cedar, birch and cherry.
The team hopes to have their ‘wood alcohol’ on shelves within three years.
