Ardbeg Odyssey Tour arrives on Saturday, August 29!

Complimentary Whisky Tasting and Interactive exhibit

Saturday, August 29 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

 

 

Ardbeg went to space, and now comes the odyssey. Starting May 7th, the vials of Space Ardbeg that came back from the International Space Station will be touring the U.S.
 

As part of the Odyssey Tour, consumers will be able to view the vials of cosmic Ardbeg while sampling different expressions of the Earth-aged whisky. We will also have the chance to tour The Odyssey trailer, which features an interactive space capsule simulator and a new video game titled Islay Invaders. Guests will board the capsule in the requisite Ardbeg space helmet, have their picture taken, and get a feel for how small the Ardbeg- and astronaut-bearing capsule really was.
