Bad Booze thread

Recommended Posts

Avoiding stuff like antifreeze specials, invented by our now blind Russian friends.

Blended whisky. Most

Caramel flavoured industrial alcohol advertised as Canadian whisky. My mum bought me a bottle. It was discounted to 5£ a bottle 30% Even the tramps avoided it.

Coloured wine. An offy in Dundee used to sort its wine by colour - blue, green, red , yellow (left to right), and by proof ( top to bottom)

Alchi/scratters/Neds fortified wine.

Tetleys. Great for hydrating down a mine. Sh1t for drinking.

Gin, when drunk by a woman. Turns then nuts.

Absinthe, when drunk by my brother. Turns him mental, then pukes everywhere.

Vodka, when drunk by my. Ive only drunk vodka once, half a bottle at 17 in 30m. I puked for 4h. Dessicated.

Australian beers, universally shite.

Jeagerbombs - Phase one of the projectile vomit.

Jack Daniels - Alcoholic syrup.

Aftershock et al. - Medical waste.

The hipster competition to see who can over-hop a beer the most is getting tedious now, a bit of hops is ok but the trend of piling it in is rendering some beers virtually undrinkable.

I like a gin, especially on a hot day.

 

Currently working my way through a bottle of this, it's stonking.

That's not gin, you need your eyesight testing before you reach for the bottle. :lol:

looks a bit niche, can you give us more information on it

I knew I'd get a mention within 5 posts of this thread starting...! :)

Just because I try to have a rock-star lifestyle on a working-man's salary. It's just jealousy you know..! ;)

Cheap drink is your friend when in your head you're Keith Richards, but in reality you are playing in a tribute-band on what's left of the Northern club circuit..

Ha! 

Sorry should have made the distinction. I'd be a bit worried if my gin looked like that!

Not a huge amount to add, I visited the distillery years ago in the highlands and picked up a bottle to keep me company as I travelled round Scotland. I may have got through a few.

The younger ones are relatively ubiquitous but a bottle of it holds the record for the most expensive I've seen. 60 years old and I think it was around 15k or something. 

An expensive tipple!

Stick to a babycham or a snowball, either with a cherry in it, and you will not go far wrong. Might even make some new friends at the bar.

Surely you daffodil and leak chompers are also allowed the odd Cherry B and lemonade if you are feeling a bit frisky...?

I'm drinking Scapa at the moment....really decent real ale for Scotland....as most beer is like Watney Red.

Orkney is well worth a visit...especially if you have a love for archaeology..

I've had two bottles of McEwan's "Champion" so-far tonight.

At 7.3% abv - and four 500ml bottles for a fiver at ASDA - this is almost Buckfast in a beer..!

My tastes don't quite reach those heady heights. Mine was 20 quid from an offie in London! ^_^

Feck me, that's 20k a litre. Even with a lottery win, I'm not sure I could justify that. Mind, London is full of entitled special snowflakes, so I guess there are some who feel they are worth it
