On October 30, 2011, Ardbeg became the first distillery in the known universe to launch into space. To test the impact low gravity has on the whisky aging process, Ardbeg sent vials of chemical compounds called terpenes to rest in the International Space Station, where they orbited the Earth fifteen times a day at a speed of 17,227 miles per hour. Science! Now that the test is over and the vials are safely back on Earth, Ardbeg is sharing the experience with you during two special events at Binny’s.

Bristling with vanilla laced red orchard fruit notes, caramel hints and baking spice following on the quick at the back stretch and far turn, today’s triple crown of Kentucky straight bourbon embodies everything you’d expect from a champion thoroughbred. Resting upon a vast bed of limestone whose mineral content ensures not only strong-boned champion stallions but also forceful whiskies whose breadth of flavors can compete with anything from Scotland or Ireland – Bourbon County enjoys advantages that are the envy of the world.

The Pilsner style is rooted in tradition, with a history spanning Germany and the Czech Republic. But that isn’t stopping the greatest craft brewers in America from making the style their own. With more Pilsners than ever, and more thirsty drinkers picking up six packs, we’re seeing explosive growth in the category. These new craft styles stick with tradition… to a point. Some have more hop character than their continental counterparts while staying true to the crisp and quenching character. As craft drinkers demand more complex and varied styles, it all adds up to a thrilling new trend – steeped in an old tradition.
