World’s Best Whiskey to Be Sent to Space

Suntory, the whiskey advertised by Bill Murray in Lost in Translation and recently crowned world’s best by the 2015 World Whisky Bible, is being sent into outer space. The Japanese distiller announced that it would be spending its award-winning brew to the International Space Station for scientific research. The research will help understand the “development of mellowness in alcoholic beverage through the use of a microgravity environment.” Suntory will send five types of its whiskey for the study.
