Alcoholic hubs and fuel availability in the world?

Hello!

I've used Origo's non preassurized alcohol hubs in Sweden, and cruicing the Baltic Sea, and my experiences are only positive - no hassels with tube connections, valves, etc (as with gas) and no smoke from the burner (as with kerosene).

Around here, a fuel called Origonol is available in most hardwear stores. Do anyone have the experiance of cruicing Caribbean, African, Polynesian or Asian waters - what kind of fuel is available? Can good quality alcoholic fuels be found everywhere?

Regards
Andreas

I know of a vodka that is almost 200 proof and I guess some 151 rum would work.

I hear rum is cheep in the Caribbean.
