Star Trek is going above and beyond (literally) to ensure authenticity with its latest launch.
No, really. The franchise is teaming up with Silver Screen Bottling Company to bring us a Star Trek-themed alcoholic beverage: Ten-Forward Vodka, which is named after the on-ship bar area in the series. But you might be surprised to know that the bottle, which was designed by Star Trek graphic designer Michael Okuda, isn’t the drink’s only space-like element.
In the next few weeks, a small batch of vodka will be sent into the atmosphere a la Up. After the voyage, the company will combine it with a larger batch to ensure “that a portion of every bottle will contain vodka from space.”
Ten-Forward Vodka is currently available for preorder for $30 per bottle and is expected to launch this September.
One question still remains: Will the vodka’s space odyssey decrease hangover potential? Guess there’s only one way to find out…
