Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

Our boat, being a classic French yacht delivered in Europe, came complete with built in racks for several cases of wine. Accordingly, we carry a nice assortment of Bordeaux's, Burgandy's, Champagne's, Cote's du Rhone and a few bottles of nice vintages from Provence. My (much) better half favors pasta dishes and these, of course, call for a nice Chiante or Barolo so we carry a couple of bottles or more of each as well. We have hard liquor aboard, a bottle or two each of Gosling's Black Rum, Bushmills 1608 (for Irish Coffee) and a bottle of Bunnahabhain single malt scotch laid down when we bought our previous boat, in 1976, although few seem to care for it (as evidenced by the age of the bottle tho' I resist repeated requests that I discard it!) but there doesn't seem to be much demand/interest in hard liquor among our friends/acquaintances save once in awhile for rum. In the beers department, we carry two: Full Sail or Harpoon, depending upon what's available; and, Anchor Steam (in recognition of our heritage in San Francisco). None have ever looked askance of any of these beers once they've had them, nor will any of you if you give them a try.

FWIW...

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

We're pretty simple, we seldom drink but, we do keep Sailor Jerry's handy just in case and Appleton for those most special of events. beer is only on board when it's a special request or a BYO type deal, wine? never

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I raced on a J92, which is only a 30 footer. At the end of the race one of the principles on the boat asked "Gin of Vodka?" Since an incident at 2 years old when I confused Gin with a glass of water, I have never liked Gin, I chose Vodka. They went down below and reached into the dry bilge and pulled out small tonic bottles labeled with G and V on top that had been opened and had an ounce or two of Tonic poured out before being replaced with the proper G or V.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

Ok, so this is completely random. On one trip, after a locals tip, we stocked up on the cheapest gin we could find. It turns out its a great mosquito repellent, you just rub it on. In some places in the Carribbean, it's cheaper by volume than actual insect repellent.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

You're approaching this thread all wrong. You should ask what I DON'T stock:

I don't have a bottle of Manischewitz...yet.

Everything else is covered.

good move. You as a sailor are aware that since the days sailing began its always been a tradition to keep the grog stocked. Hummmm....that raises the question of; can a vessel remain afloat long lacking grog? Maybe shipwrecks are not caused by storms reefs etc. but in fact caused because the grog ran out and the crew sobered up.......things may look a bit diferent under those conditions and mistakes are likely
