Speaking Scotch
Uigeadail is the name of the loch that provides the Ardbeg distillery with water, pronounced oog-a-dal.


Scotch in Outer Space
In 2011, vials of whiskey particles and pieces of charred oak they were treated with were sent to the International Space Station to see how compounds in whiskey interact with charred oak in the micro-gravity of space. The "terpenes," as the whiskey compounds are called, have never before been grown in zero gravity. They return to Earth in September, 2014.
