Re. the Distillery being suspected of WMD involvement;
In WW2 the government used some of the fermentation vessels and equipment from the Marmite factory (for Aussies this is a superior version of Vegemite) for the preparation of Anthrax spores as a precaution in case chemical/biological warfare broke out. (The anthrax was prepared as sprays (to be used over a battlefield) and in feed cakes to be dropped on German farmers' fields.
At least the third time I've said that on this board, but I still find it piquant.
