Just because you’re an astronaut doesn’t mean you have to give up drinking whisky in space. However, the lack of gravity might cause some problems for those attempting to enjoy two fingers of their favorite single malt. Thankfully, the good people over at Ballantine’s designed a whisky glass made specifically for zero gravity environments.

Dubbed the Ballantine Space Glass, is was developed in conjunction with the Open Space Agency and features a magnet in the bottom of the glass so it won’t go floating around unnecessarily in the space shuttle. It’s also built out of medical-grade ClearVue plastic for durability and rose gold for the base and mouthpiece. A chamber for the whisky is located at the bottom of the glass that can be filled through a nozzle. The glass is then able to contain the beverage in the chamber and is drunk through an internal tube that ends with a mouthpiece. From here the rest is self-explanatory. No word on pricing or availability, but worth an inquiry if you’re planning a weekend camping trip on the moon.
