From a galaxy far, far away

Giving new meaning to getting high, several beer and wine companies are exploiting our fascination with space by advertising their products as imported … from a galaxy far, far away. In some cases, ingredients have actually been rocketed out of the atmosphere. In others, it's just a lot of marketing moonshine. Are any of them worth checking out? Here's some examples:
1.RED FLYER
"From the darkest reaches of the universe comes this red wine invasion," says Red Flyer maker Wimbledon Wine. A so-called entertainment wine, it boasts an ingredient called Clone X, which was "smuggled from outer space."

2.TOSA SPACE SAKE
Last October, Japan's Kochi prefecture and 19 local breweries paid the Russian Federal Space Agency to carry some yeast into orbit. Sake containing the astro-yeast hit store shelves in April.

3.CROP CIRCLE BEER
UK-based Hop Back brewery's Crop Circle beer is made with wheat from Wiltshire, apparently a very popular tourist destination for aliens – about 70 crop circles appear there every year.
