As Part of Your Pre-Order, You Will Be Reserved a Bottle from the First Batch of AI Whisky, the First Ever Whisky Created by Machine Learning.

Your Bottle will be Dispatched Before General Availability. This will be in late August, early September 2019. 

Working with Machine Learning Specialist Fourkind and based on Microsoft Azure platform, Mackmyra will soon be releasing the world's first AI whisky. Using data from existing recipes (including those for award-winning blends), sales data, and customer preferences, over 70 million recipes were assessed for quality and popularity. 

This is the first time that AI has been used to augment and automate the most time-consuming process of whisky creation and is available from Pre-order today.

Humans have always selected the different blends of ingredients and casks to create near-infinite flavour combinations. 

"We always strive to challenge the traditions in the very traditional whisky trade and that’s something we really do now when we develop a whisky with the help of AI. We see AI as a part of our digital development, it is really exciting to let AI be a complement to the craft of producing a high-quality whisky. For me as a Master Blender it is a great achievement to be able to say that I'm now also a mentor for the first ever created AI whisky in the world" says Angela D’Orazio from Mackmyra. 

This is the first time that AI has been used to augment and automate the most time-consuming process of whisky creation. The distillery’s machine learning models, powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform and AI cognitive services, are fed with Mackmyra’s existing recipes (including those for award-winning blends), sales data, and customer preferences. With this dataset, the AI can generate more than 70 million recipes that it predicts will be popular and of the highest quality.

Currently, the distillery's machine learning models, powered by Microsoft's Azure cloud platform and AI cognitive services, are fed with Mackmyra's existing recipes (including those for award-winning blends), sales data, and customer preferences. With this dataset the AI can generate more than 70 million recipes that it predicts will be popular, and of the highest quality based on what kind of cask types there are in the warehouse.

This is not only faster than a person carrying out the process manually, but thanks to the algorithm’s ability to sift through and calculate a vast amount of data, new and innovative combinations that would otherwise never have been considered, can be found.

It's important to stress, however, that this AI solution is not designed to replace a Master Blender. "The work of a Master Blender is not at risk," Angela states. "While the whisky recipe is created by AI, we still benefit from a person's expertise and knowledge. We believe that the whisky is AI-generated, but human-curated. Ultimately, the decision is made by a person."
