WWWTP? – Tristillation of Tequila

July 9th, 2013

I talked about this video on Twitter (via @davidperrey) and others have commented on it, but I just wanted to enter it into the WWWTP archive. It is a doozy:

Tristillation is complete b.s., but they really did present it in a lovely manner.

    I once had the opportunity to taste-test a number of very expensive tequilas (up to $1,000/bottle!!). The strongest conclusion with which I came away was that the more you cleaned up the tequila, the less tequila taste remained. Since I happen to actually like the taste of tequila, I had one more reason to purchase the much more reasonably priced offerings.

    I love that the ACS president is commenting about his taste in tequila on your blog (and I have no doubt it’s him!)

    Tristillation = Distillation + 1

    In a spare moment (when I should be writing a paper) I clicked on the Bracher Lab advertisement on the left.

    Pre-biotic chemistry? I could say (in jest) that it is an area where one finishes a career in chemistry, not begin one. I look forward to a post in the near future about why “tackle an impossible problem”.

    @Rhenium: That is actually a half-written post. Stay tuned. I agree that the field has had its share of issues, but it is a fantastically interesting problem. And it’s probably best to forget about *the* origin of life; show me *an* origin of life and I’ll be ecstatic.
