A London bar has created a unique cocktail with a modern twist.

The whiskey-based 'Origin' cocktail comes with a virtual reality headset that transports customers to the distillery where the spirit was made.

At $23 (18 pounds) a shot, the drink is mixed with 12-year-old Dalmore whiskey and a blend of Merlet Soeurs Cerises cherry liqueur, cherry puree, fresh grapefruit juice, chocolate bitters and Lallier champagne - and it is set to be available early 2018.

THE 'ORIGIN'

The whiskey-based 'Origin' cocktail comes with a virtual reality headset that transports you to the distillery where the spirit is from.

Drinkers get a two-minute tour of sweeping Scottish fields and babbling brooks where the cereal and water used in the whiskey is sourced.

It costs $23 a shot and is said to be a blend of Merlet Soeurs Cerises cherry liquer, cherry puree, fresh grapefruit juice, chocolate bitters and Lallier champagne, and will be on the menu early next year.

'We get a lot of people saying 'oh I have goose bumps' because it is happening in front of you,' the Lobby Bar manager Pedro Paulo, who came up with the idea, told Reuters.

'When you take (the headset) off and the drink is actually right in front of you it gives people that sense of uniqueness, they feel unique,' he added.

Other than the aged whiskey, drinkers will enjoy a blend of Merlet Soeurs Cerises cherry liqueur, cherry puree, fresh grapefruit juice, chocolate bitters and Lallier champagne.

The virtual trip will take customers on a two-minute tour of the sweeping Scottish fields and babbling brooks where the cereal and water used in the whiskey is sourced.

Users begin flying over the Scottish Highlands, then make their way to the barely field, to the distillery and finish back at in the stunning Covent Garden where the journey began.

The Lobby Bar, located at the One Aldwych Hotel, may take viewers through a virtual world while the sip on a cocktail, but Tokyo-based researchers have developed a way for users to 'eat' in cyberspace.

With a flood of VR headsets making the technology more accessible, developers are racing to satisfy our desires and vices, with everything from virtual art studios to first person shooters and even pornography.

But developing virtual food remains a challenge, with a sense of taste, smell and even what the food feels like in the mouth being crucial to the experience.

Last year, a group in Tokyo unveiled a prototype for an electric fork which delivers small shocks to the tongue, stimulating taste receptors to boost saltiness.

Now other groups have expanded the virtual repertoire to incorporate sweetness, reports New Scientist.

Presenting at the ACM User Interface Software and Technology Symposium in Tokyo last month, Nimesha Ranasinghe and Ellen Yi-Luen Do of the National University of Singapore revealed a nifty interface for stimulating sweetness.

Using a 9V battery, their virtual sweetness instrument uses a grid of four elements which generate temperature changes of 5°C in a few seconds.

When applied to the tip of the tongue, the temperature change results in a virtual sweet sensation.

While the initial findings are promising, the pair report that in a small test of 15 people, only eight registered a very mild sweet taste.
