Like it or not, Windows is no longer on the focus. Microsoft now talks about Cloud computing, Intelligent Edge, and everything AI and frankly, the new strategy is working quite well for the company.

Now, the Redmond giant has added yet another feature to its hat by helping Mackmyra developing the world’s first AI-generated whiskey.

“We always strive to challenge the traditions in the very traditional whiskey trade, and that’s something we can really do now with the help of AI. We see AI as a part of our digital development, and it is really exciting to let AI be a complement to the craft of producing a high-quality whiskey,” says Angela D’Orazio, Master Blender at Mackmyra.

Microsoft helped in developing a distillery machine learning models which are powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform and Azure cognitive services. These models are well aware of the existing recipes for making whiskey and with the help of the data, it can generate more than 70 million recipes.

Microsoft confirmed that Mackmyra’s AI-generated whiskey will be available from Autumn 2019, that means you will be able to buy it.
