I do think it’s pretty cool that yeast is being sent into space for scientific research. And it’s also cool that liquor is going up, for research, of course. Food is something people really like and having decent food for missions to Mars or long term Moon stays is pretty important!
However, I’ve had Ardbeg whiskey. It tastes like something that’s been filtered through the ashes of my dead self, then sent back in time so I can drink it. In a good way.
As starting point for flavor, though, I’m just not convinced that Ardbeg is where you begin. However, I am not a scientist.
