We love… The Whiskey Tornado by Bompas & Parr

Experimental food designers Bompas & Parr have created the Whiskey Tornado – a machine that produces an inhalable and intoxicating, alcoholic vapor.

Experimental food designers Bompas & Parr have created The Whiskey Tornado – a machine that produces an inhalable and intoxicating, alcoholic vapor.

The machine generates a “spinning column” of whiskey inside itself, which is created when powerful humidifiers react with negative air pressure. Visitors are invited to inhale the potent vapor, which is instantly “absorbed through the lungs and into the bloodstream,” and made even more flavorsome by the humidity of the installation.

The project is part of Feed Your Mind: The King’s Festival of Food and Ideas, currently running at King’s College London, and comments on the diverse weather system in the highlands of Scotland, which is said to enrich the flavor of Scottish, distilled whiskey.

“Sunlight, temperature, rainfall and humidity all contribute to the distinctive aromatics found in the spirit,” explains Sam Bompas.

You can read more about the designers and food artists who are playing with our perception of flavor and taste in our recent report, Food Flavors. Feed Your Mind will run until March 22 – a full program of events can be found here. – Samantha Fox
