In more news of our government being unclear what "threats" are:

It's not the first time the distillery has attracted international attention.

About two years ago, the U.S. government's Defence Threat Reduction Agency monitored the distillery's webcams for fear they were making chemical weapons.

"I kid you not. You couldn't make it up if you tried," said Reynier.

Although given what they're currently making, that may not be so far-fetched an idea as it sounds:

One of the owners of a tiny distillery on Scotland's west coast says an ancient recipe for quadruple-distilled whisky makes your knees buckle and takes your breath away.

Mark Reynier, managing director and one of four owners of Bruichladdich distillery on the island of Islay, says he got the idea to make the 92 per cent-alcohol whisky after reading a manuscript from 1695.

Oh, those ancient Scots and their fascination with imbibing WMDs!
