The story behind the world’s first AI-created whisky

The number 36 may not hold any significance for you, but for Angela D’Orazio, it marks an important milestone.

D’Orazio is the master blender and chief nose officer at Mackmyra – a multi-award-winning Swedish whisky distillery, and the producer of the world’s first AI-created whisky.

Recipe number 36, generated by an AI algorithm, was the one that D’Orazio personally selected for the groundbreaking blend, before it went into production and on general sale.

This is the story of human craftsmanship and technology working in partnership, to produce something rather special.
