In 2011 the Ardbeg Distillery in Scotland partnered with Texas space research company NanoRacks to launch a vial of unmatured malt and charred oak pieces into orbit. The vial was launched on a Russian Soyuz rocket later that same year while an identical vial was kept as a control in the Ardbeg distillery. On September 12th, 2014 the vial is scheduled to return to Earth so the two can be compared. The hope in the experiment is to see how microgravity conditions affect the maturation process of whisky.

After Shackleton's secret stash of whiskey was discovered in 2007 there has been great care at Whyte & Mackay in attempting to create a reproduction of the adventurous whiskey.
The whiskey was found buried underneath Shackleton's cabin in the antarctic, they were placed there in 1907 by Shackleton and his men.
