Ballantine’s reveals ‘space glass’ prototype, but what gets put in it may taste of ‘antiseptic lozenges and rubbery smoke’

In space, no one can hear you scream. But on the plus side, you may be able to sip your glass of whisky without splashing it all over the cabin.

The alcohol brand Ballantine’s has revealed a prototype design for “space glass”, a whisky glass designed to be used in a galaxy not so far away.

“Motion one pulls the whisky into the base of the glass, then motion two is to roll the whisky in your hand and let the heat transfer through the metal base into the liquid itself.

Step three involves then moving the glass down prior to moving your nose into the space where the vapours are resting. The final motion is to move the glass upwards to capture the liquid in the base plate and let it enter your mouth.”
