(NEWSER– Who knew the Pogues' "Streams of Whiskey" was more than just a metaphor? A mix-up at a Chivas Brothers plant in Scotland in the wee hours of Tuesday morning resulted in around 4,750 gallons of whisky—about $750,000 worth—getting flushed down the drain, reports the Scottish Sun. The mistake occurred during the night shift; workers washing out the equipment were supposed to drain the water and cleaning solution from the tanks, but the whisky got released instead.
