I tried ‘Atomik’ vodka made from radioactive Chernobyl apples.

WHEN I told the barman at a plush London boozer on Friday that I wanted a drink with a kick to it, I didn't mean this.

I was served a tumbler of booze brewed using radioactive apples picked near the blitzed Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.

The potent spirit is called Atomik, and I was one of a lucky (or not so lucky) few to try it ahead of its UK launch this weekend.

Surprisingly, it didn't glow green like a cartoon nuclear rod. At £45 a bottle, that's the least I'd expect.

The fruit used in the recipe is "slightly" radioactive, making the resulting spirit safe to drink, according to the outfit behind the bonkers project.

Watch to find out how our 'Atomik' taste test went.
