Ardbeg had a vision. And that was to finish-mature Whisky in zero gravity—outer space. The idea seemed like science fiction at first, but became fact in 2011. The Ardberg Galileo was one of the most hotly anticipated launches (see what we did there?) in 2012. The trip to outer space aside, it’s a damn good dram and, as you might have guessed, as rare as they get.

Distilled in 1999 and aged in both ex-Marsala and ex-Bourbon barrels, this is a fine example of true Islay spirit, famous for its heavily peated expressions.

Ardbeg's signature 10YO won "World Whisky of the Year" in 2008.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
