Ardbeg Odyssey Tour + Day + Perpetuum

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.

The Whiskey Hotline Goes to Casa Noble


Casa Noble Tequila


We fell in love with Casa Noble years ago, after tasting the tequila and meeting owner and distiller Pepe Hermosillo. This exceptional producer uses organic 100% blue agave, distills thoughtfully and ages in heavily toasted French oak. The careful combination of agave balanced by high quality oak is breathtaking – the same quality shared with world class whisky or Cognac.


The Whiskey Hotline traveled to Casa Noble in the town of Tequila to find the best. After exhaustive tasting, we returned with two barrels each of three expressions, picking pairs of barrels to ensure supply. Of course, there are always subtle differences across single barrels, but we chose duets that downplay differences, seeking similar barrels that overdeliver within their style.

The Kentucky Bourbon Triple Crown


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.
