Whisky in glass

Special Events

The Science of Whisky

Join The Good Spirits Company and our resident astronomer as we take you through a journey of The Science of Whisky. Taste high-quality whisky from around Scotland, featuring a variety of styles all chosen to compliment a discussion of the science of whisky production, alcohol and astronomy.

You'll end the evening with the final dram of the night tasted under the glittering stars of the Planetarium, where you'll be flown into space to explore clouds of interstellar alcohol and discover how everything in your glass came to be, forged in the heart of a dying star.

This event is for over-18s only. If you're lucky enough to look under the age of 25 we'll ask you for ID when you arrive, so please bring some with you to avoid disappointment.

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
