    What non-whisk(e)y spirit are you drinking?

    (sorry if this is already a thread, but I did not see one that encompasses non-whisk(e)y spirits in general) Gin (St. George Terroir) and tonic tonight, mostly due to needing to use up an open bottle of tonic. Going all right, but I think I prefer this one with a little juice.

    A lonely thread for sure, so going to add to it.

    One of my favorite hot day, before dinner beverages. Well, good after dinner too!

    Pint glass of crushed ice, 2 ounces Hernsaint, 1/2 ounce simple syrup, and it off with some water.

    Granted, the taste is not to everybody's liking, but simple and lovely on a hot, lazy summer's afternoon.

    I have been drinking Kirkland Tequila Silver this summer. It is 100% agave and is really quite nice.
    Bourbon makes me happy.

    Splurged on a bottle of green Chatreuse VEP, and am loving sipping on it neat.

    Sipping on some manastirka slivovitz which is a 10yr serbian plum brandy, very strong and unique flavour, going well with a small plate of various smoked meats

    Zubrowka vodka, great for straight sipping, no need to mix.

    Some sort of German pear brandy thing i found in my hotel vending machine in Germany. Smells like Bruichladdich Organic...tastes like peach jet fuel.

    Again...something with iPhone photos won't rotate right.
