Whiskey is different when it's aged in space.
Ardbeg Distillery in Scotland sent a vial of its whiskey to the International Space Station and let it age there for nearly three years with flakes of oak. It kept an identical one on the ground for comparison. (Video via NASA)
Result: It's not clear that the two samples are much different chemically, but they do taste different. (Video via Ardbeg)
