There appears to be a story doing the rounds in foreign newspapers and websites that Welsh whisky is a miracle cure for swine flu. Now, even the Welsh would admit that it takes brave person to drink Welsh whisky and it may be responsible for many things but miracle cures aint one of them. It seems this story got started when a Russian sports team was visiting Wales and they were advised to drink whisky as a way of avoiding getting swine flu (you may recall that Wales at one time looked immune to swine flu but has now rapidly caught up). And from this small beginning the internet rumour began. Welsh whisky may not cure you but its taste will almost certainly take your mind off the flu.
