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.

I suspect they had a hidden bottling plant in the sewers. Either that or they would have distilled the slurry at the local sewerage farm for export, Scots would never waste good whiskey.

It is still alcohol abuse to flush it down the drain.

why? it is whiskey. Tastes like sewers anyway. No need to filter, just bottle the sludge down there.

Oh, Scotch. I was worried it might have been good. Probably doesn't help the environment.

nice oxymoron.

I feel sorry for the sewer rats. Relaxing, eating some shit. And suddenly someone dumps that disgusting crap on them. Poor animals.
