CHEERS, friends! A safe, synthetic substitute for alcohol is on the way! This alcohol substitute would be hangover-free, and have less of a negative on overall health, according to the scientists working on the substance called "Alcarelle."
David Nutt, an English neuropsychopharmacologist, has plans for a safe synthetic alcohol substitute called Alcarelle. According to the Guardian, the award-winning scientist has been developing a super molecule called “alcosynth” that aims to provide the same effects of alcohol, without the next-day hangover and most importantly, the negative health effects of alcohol.
In November 2018, he and his business partner raised $26 million from investors to bring Alcarelle to market. The biggest hurdle of this endeavor? The regulatory hoops they’ll have to jump through to make the product available for public consumption.
It typically takes 2-3 years to create and test a beverage that will pass the FDA. So Nutt and his team, conservatively give a 5 year time table for Alcarelle's release to the public market!
Until then, whiskey straight!
