It uses apples from the Narodychi district, partly covered by the abandoned exclusion zone.

Viktor Feer, director of the Palinochka Distillery where it is made, said: “It is robust but smooth with clear hints of apple reminiscent of a beautiful Ukrainian autumn.”

Its makers insist the drink is no more radioactive than other spirits.

Prof Jim Smith, from the University of Portsmouth, said: “We believe the accident’s social and economic impacts are now a much bigger problem than the radiation.”
