Japanese spirits conglomerate, Suntory, is sending six samples of their premium whisky into space aboard the International Space Station, in an effort to determine if zero gravity has any effect on whisky aging. As part of its space whisky package, Suntory has indicated they will send a 21-year-old single malt to ISS. Previous research has shown that whisky aged in a climate with little to no temperature change can be less intense.
The whisky samples will stay in space on the ISS for one to two years and Suntory has said they currently have no plans to make the whisky available for consumer purchase when it returns to Earth. Suntory will send its first space whisky assortment up on August 16, 2015.
