Do you love your alcohol? More importantly could you tell me every bottle you prefer in order? And even if I didn’t ask, could you give me a detailed explanation about yeast/grapes and every other ingredient that goes in your favourite alcohol?

Then you my friend are an alcohol enthusiast. But sadly there aren’t too many of those in the world, so you have to hang out with people like me. People who can’t tell you where Whisky originated, people who drink the cheapest thing on the menu and down their drinks to get drunk.
