No more hangovers?

A high tech-wine cabinet shrunk to a portable size and a vodka that won’t leave you with a hangover.

In a perfect world, we can knock back shots like nobody’s business and wake up the next day with no repercussions. Made in Australia, ASM Liquor, may have found the perfect solution by separating methanol from ethanol so all you experience are the dizzying effects without ever needing the hair of the dog.
Touted to have no impurities, chemical agents and additives found in mainstream alcohol, the Vodka O, one of its more popular spirits, possesses all the flavour but no grimace-inducing sharpness when we sampled it. Aussie celebrity chef Luke Mangan also uses ASM Liquor in his creation of 'The Australian' Cocktail—a blend of white spirits, cognac and cranberry juice, freshened with ginger and lime syrup—doled out on Virgin Australia flights. There is also a range of other spirits including the Rocking Angel Bourbon, Jinn Dry Gin, Tequila Blu Reposado, Naked Scot and Kinky Nero Rum.  $54-$68 available at Bottles & Bottles and 1855 The Bottle Shop.

WINE SAVIOUR
