You're probably aware of the illicit Irish whisky known as 'poteen', often made from potatoes. Well, if you fancy some whisky, but are quite partial to a decent cup of tea as well, you might be interested in combining the two using this device - the "Pot-o'Tea'n" Still. Tests have shown that 90%-proof Earl Grey could soon be a reality on your dining table!
