Just Ten Bottles

Over at Kaiser Penguin, Rick proposes the question What if you could only have 10 bottles of alcohol for the rest of your life? Obviously the bottles would be replenishable, but you could never have any other spirits or even brands of a particular spirit. What would you choose?

Before anyone states that this is another desert island contrivance and is in no way applicable to the real world, let me put forward my opinion that it is a fine excuse to consider how to stock the bar at the dascha or on the yacht (the moonbase has its own considerations) or as an outline of a contract rider.

  • Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 12 Bridges Gin (Integrity Spirits)
  • Krogstadt Aquavit
  • Blanton Bourbon
  • Carpano Antica
  • Luxardo Maraschino
  • Campari
  • Qi White
  • St George Spirits Absinthe Verte
  • Chartreuse VEP (green)

We shall assume an even supply of citrus fruits and sugar, and various teas and herbs to be used for steeping.

    It isn’t stipulated that the desert island is tropical, is it?
