What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I am slowly stocking the East Coast lady with a her drink stores.
Just wondering what yall keep on your boat for you then for guest?

Mixed drinks, wine champagne??
I know what I like
Rum. But I need to be mindful and serve others what they like as well.

Thanks for your list and thoughts.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I like rum also, but should have some whiskey, vodka, some red some white, some pagne, and a good assortment of beer? I dont have the room for mixed drinks but if I did then those also.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I like my own herbal and fruit liqueurs (very medicinal, mind you) so this is what I always have with me. They never go bad... just empty... My guests (rather infrequent on my little boat) usually like it too (or so they politely say).

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I'm like a squirrel- I keep stashing bottles of wine around the boat. It seems that every time I go looking for a part or something I find a bottle I had forgotten about! last weekend it was a nice bottle of Tannat from Uruguay.

I keep a large and mysterious stock of wine aboard and a bottle of whisky for guests (I almost never drink it). I also have a stock of beer in the hold and sometimes a good bottle of cachaça. I can't make ice aboard so I don't keep anything for mixed drinks. I wish I could get good rum here!

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

We keep beer, cider, tonic water, ginger beer, gin, rum, Cointreau, vermouth, and angastora bitters. With the hard alcohol and mixers we can make gin and tonics, martinis, dark and stormies, and of course Pegu Clubs. Something for all tastes.

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

If your in to rum you might give Agricole or Cacasa a try. They are same family as rum only they are made from fermented sugarcane juice rather than molasses. They are not that good straight in my opinion but a Caipirinha (Cacasa, lime, sugar, ice) is similar to a traditional daiquiri, and cant be beat on a hot day. Leblon is a good easy to find Cacasa for around $19 (some of the cheep ones can be awful)

We often stock a bottle of either Agricole or Cacasa, Luxardo maraschino liqueur (vital ingredient in a Hemmingway daiquiri), Rum both light and dark, Wild turkey american honey, Campari, and ginger beer (for dark and stormy's)

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I think we're pretty basic.

For our own tastes:
Almaden Chardonnay in a box
Mount Gay rum
Maker's Mark bourbon
Glenfiddich Scotch

Just in case:
Gordon's gin
Stolichaya vodka
tonic
sparkling water
ginger beer
ginger ale
Coke
Captain Morgon rum
some random red and white wines in bottles

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

I drink local beer and wine while cruising. This year was Italian wine from the South, including Sicily (great), Greek wine (not so great). Italians and Greeks have good beers even if hard to find (the really good ones).

For liquor in Italy Grappa, Limoncello and Amaretto. In Greece Uso. I become addicted, drunk at the Greek way. They drink it in such large quantities that it is less expensive than a coffee..

Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

We have red and white wine. Box wine is perfect for the boat. Easier to store, won't roll/break, handles the heat better and each box is 4 bottles worth. We found Bota box to be the best tasting. We like the black box (malbec) for red and the light blue for the white. You can also take the bladder out of the box and put it in the fridge.

Then we have scotch, gin, vodka & vermouth. Tonic, soda, and fresh limes, finish our bar.

Lastly we make a drink we call "The Conway" but I premix it at home and bring it to the boat. It's Mezcal, Aperol, Chartreusse, simple syrup, fresh lime juice. It has a smokey-n-grapefruity taste that goes very well with sunsets. If you find us aboard Shangri-La, stop over for one.

Strictly a beer and wine guy. Always bottles, although I know plenty of people who say you should only have cans on board for safety.
