One of the best single malt distilleries is test if whisky matures in zero gravity. Space station used for Ardbeg distillery experiments

Sending Scotch whiskey into space. I wonder if the astronauts will be tempted to have a little tipple while its there to check if the experiment is going ok.

They should have sent up a bottle of Irish whiskey too. See which matures best in zero G.

Good story,

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.

So the question is"Will grain ferment in micro gravity?" I'm sure that by now the Russians have found out whether you can get drunk in space and how bad the hangover is.

But that was probably on Vodka! Anyway there is a no alcohol rule on the ISS for obvious reasons, but an exception has obviously been made for a scientific experiment.
