This print was inspired by Ardbeg's Supernova series. Originally, the Nanoracks team contacted Ardbeg to see if they could do an experiment by aging scotch in space. They wanted to see how if the micro-gravity aging process would affect the flavour of the spirit. This is an image of Shortie, Ardbeg's official mascot, in space. The space vials orbited in space for 2 years, and a case study indicated that the control samples on Earth tasted different than the ones floating in outer space. I attempted to read the report called, "The Impact of Micro-Gravity on the Release of Oak Extractives into Spirit", and noticed there was a striking difference between the amount of vanillin, for example, between the Earth and space samples. So, I decided to draw some of those compounds, instead of inputting constellations.
