Whisky Galore

I was fascinated to read that there is a project on the go to "dehydrate" whisky.
It would save fortunes in bottles,transport and storage costs. Basically, they flash-freeze the whisky which forms tiny crystals, which are then dehydrated and packed in a small box. You don't even need to rehydrate it all at once - and the amount of water added determines the strength too.
They are also doing a very nice line in water from the streams where the whisky is made, so you can get the whole experience.
NB apparently it doesn't work with whiskey - which comes from Ireland.
