imagesGetting ahead of the game, Japanese booze behemoth Suntory Holdings is sending  six samples of its kickass whisky and other alcoholic beverages to the International Space Station in August. Suntory is sending up the samples for a year as it wants to check out how these samples age in zero gravity.

Then, back at home assuming the astronauts didn’t get their mitts on them, the masters at Suntory will check out the samples to see how they taste and in what ways being in space affects them. At least they’ll be able to say, “They’re out of this world!”

No, they won’t be sale. You’ll just have to take their work for it!
