Peter Bignell, of Tasmanian Belgrove Distillery, was first struck by the idea at the Rootstock festival in Sydney, a gathering of winemakers from all over the world promoting sustainable practices in the winemaking industry. He was in a group tasting wines, and as per tradition in wine-tasting, the majority of it was spat out in a bucket. This practice enables tasters to experience a lot of different wines while avoiding drunkenness.
塔斯马尼亚Belgrove Distillery酒厂的皮特•比格内尔在参加了悉尼“Rootstock葡萄酒节”后萌生了这个想法。这个葡萄酒节聚集了世界各地的酿酒商,推动酿酒行业可持续实践。比格内尔是品酒人之一。将口中大部分红酒吐到一个桶里是品酒时的传统,这种做法可以让品尝者在尝试多种不同红酒的同时避免醉酒。

Bignell, however, saw it as wasteful.

“I hate waste, absolutely hate waste,” the distiller said. “That bucket in the middle of the room with all the dregs of the wine and everyone’s spit in it, that’s a waste, that’s going to get tipped down the drain. I said ‘If I took that [spit bucket] home and distilled it and brought it back next year, who would drink it?’ and I think everybody’s hands went up.”

Bignell then arranged with the organizers of Rootstock to collect the wine dregs after the conference, with the aim to distill it. “We got 500 liters of wine,” Bignell told ABC Radio Hobart. “There were bits of bickies and cheese and the odd bit of beer in there.”

Rather than ship the 500 liters of spittoons back to his distillery in Tasmania, Bignell found the nearest distillery to the event and used their equipment to process the dregs. Twelve months later, Bignell had transformed the spit bucket wine into an 80-proof clear spirit called Kissing A Stranger, with a taste comparable to unaged brandy. He brought most of the beverage to the 2017 Rootstock festival, last November, but also left some to age.

Bignell told The Guardian. “We are going to collect the buckets again this year and keep making it. It’s all about sustainability.”

The concern exists that drinking distilled spit could be unsafe, but the associate professor in food microbiology at the University of Tasmania, Tom Ross, assured Radio Australia that it should be safe for consumers.

“Mostly what you’d be worried about is transmission of microorganisms, germs,” he said. “But the heat in the distillation process should get rid of most of those. The rest should be fairly harmless because they were foods before you started; [the] only thing that’s been added is the saliva. I don’t think there’s much of a health risk from it.”
