This is a question Presents

What are you buying your loved ones this Christmas? We're looking for inspiration and reckon a big share-a-thon of ideas will help everyone buy better gifts this year.

BTW: If your family reads B3ta and you're worried about giving the game away then tell us what you bought last Christmas.

I've asked my girlfriend for this for christmas...


"At 79.9%, this is only for mixing, or as a 'float' to supercharge cocktails, where it contributes a surprising array of flavours as well as the extra alcohol. Don't drink it neat. Please."

Tch! What do they know?
*opens bottle*
*passes out*
Merry christmas to all, and to all a good night...

I've taken a sip of 80% Absynth before
It feels like you have heart burn down your entire esophagus and into your stomach. Can't be doing your insides any good.

We clean and sterilise our lab benches with 70% ethanol.
That stuff's akin to paint stripper.

I see your 79.9% and raise you 88%: Balkan - Vodka 176
What you want is some of this!

I'm really tempted to get some, along with a bottle of Chase Distillery Potato Vodka (which I tried a month or so back and was amazing, never had a straight vodka before that truly was pleasant to drink neat and had no burning or horrible after-taste at all!)

But to get both will cost me £75+ and I can't seem to justify that sort of money on falling down water.

Also has that little tag that says "Don't drink it neat!". Poppycock, says I, and drinks it neat.

I couldn't taste things for weeks. But, heyho, we did make some bastardo cocktails out of them (the Absinthe Martini - take 2 parts Balkan, 1 part Tanquery No. Ten gin and a drizzle of overproof Absinthe from the wrong side of Moscow. Mix, and sip) and learned that we were hardened drinkers.

Sounds like a challenge.
