    I understand they use tea in those movie whisky bottles, wonder if the prop department gets to drink the real stuff.

    Tea is what we used in drama class in college too.

    In "The Master", there's a quick shot of Freddie grabbing random bottles of liquor to mix up his 'potion'. In a close-up, he grabs something I can't recall (probably a fictional brand?), but a bottle of Old Fitz can be seen right next to it.

    In the trailer for the Burt Wonderstone movie I think there's a scene where Steve Carrell is in the bath tub with a bottle of Blanton's in the corner of the screen.

    Bourbon in the Movies

    I did a taping for my friend's TV directing class my freshman year in college. He wrote a scene loosely based on a Bukowski short story that took place in a bar. It was basically me and my buddy sitting at a table drinking and complaining about women. Each take involved pounding a beer and taking three shots of Jack Daniels. We did three takes in a little more than an hour. No tea here, I guess the teacher was out that day...

    I took the booze surprisingly well, but my scene partner woozily slurred his way through that last take and promptly lurched off stage to vomit. I was buzzed, but about 20 minutes after we wrapped, it hit me like a refrigerator and I was plastered. No vomit, I don't think, which just goes to show how welcoming my body is to booze! But 9 shots and 3 beers in an hour is generally not recommended...

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    I hear you. I used tea for a long solo scene out of (IIRC) a Harold Pinter play. 15 minute monologue, part of which was spent on the phone, but drinking the whole time. Never inquired as to whether real booze would have been allowed - I didn't think I could remember my lines!

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    This website (and this thread) has left a lasting impression on me. Every time I see a bottle of bourbon in a movie, I have to point it out to myself.

    I'm watching Sling Blade right now. Doyle has his "band" over at the house and they are drinking and bsing. Doyle is loaded from drinking Double Eagle Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey. I tried finding some info online and found next to nothing. Can anyone share any info about this brand?
