Whisky Business: The Science of Whisky

A photograph of a glass of whisky with the title Whisky Business: The Science of Whisky

Whisky: It's made from grains, gets old in a barrel, and has travelled to space and back.

Questacon's whisky enthusiasts are back with the ever popular Whisky Business. Using drams from around the world they will be exploring the science of whisky. How does the smokiness of whisky relate to climate change?  What will happen to whisky when combined with liquid nitrogen? What has Bog Man got to do with any of it? Through comparing and contrasting, science will be closely examined through the bottom of the whisky glass.
