The idea for AI-created whisky began with a meeting between Mackmyra and Microsoft, in which the future of whisky was being discussed. Inspired by the idea, Microsoft partner Fourkind (part of Thoughtworks) was brought in to develop the solution. Working closely together with the team at Mackmyra, Fourkind, created its AI solution using Microsoft Azure, providing it with the datasets it needed to begin generating its first recipes. Mackmyra's Master Blender used her knowledge to determine which recipe ingredients would work well together while correcting other less desirable combinations. As this process was repeated, the AI algorithm began to learn which combinations were the most favourable and produce better recipe combinations. These recipes became the Intelligens series.
