A cooler blend of culture

Spirit in the sky: ‘Star Trek’ vodka brand to be shot into space

Ten-Forward Vodka @2x

The vodka market is heavily saturated at the moment. From top-end brands to affordable premixed products, top and bottom shelves in clubs, pubs and bottlos are crammed with the good clear stuff.

But here’s a vodka brand that is literally out-of-this-world. Well, will soon be.

Independent distributors The Silver Screen Bottling Company has teamed up with the licensers of Star Trek to create ‘Ten-Forward Vodka’, named so after the space odyssey’s on-ship bar.

And to celebrate the launch, these out-there folks are sending a small batch of the vodka up into space.

Using a high-altitude balloon to keep the thing afloat, and documenting its journey via Instagram, the exercise certainly sounds like a first in science and alchemy.

If only experiments at school were this cool.  Antonino Tati

 

Ten-Forward Vodka can be pre-ordered for US$30 a bottle before its launch in September 2018.
