The tall and the short of it

Around the world in a bottle

People all over the world drink and enjoy alcohol. As a matter of fact, the different kinds spirits you will find on the bar shelf will usually represent just about every continent and large culture on earth! In a bar, you’ll see Russian Vodkas, American whiskeys, French wines, English beers and Carribean rums all on one shelf! Throughout history, negotiations have been brokered and treaties have been finalized over the raising of a glass filled with an appropriate spirit

The proof is in the mix
The word "proof" was coined years ago when ships that were unloading their cargo of whiskey had only one way to tell the strength of the liquor they were carrying. They mixed a pinch of gunpowder with a spoonful of whiskey and when a lighted match was dropped into the mixture, it ignited with an loud “proof!” Today, there are better ways of determining an alcohol's proof, but they're not as much fun as the old-fashioned way!

Poetry in a bottle

There's a lot more to becoming a wine expert than tossing back a glass now and then.

Wine has been around for thousands of years, and for a newcomer wine can seem very intimidating. Many people in the world drink wine simply as a healthy, enjoyable daily drink. Many people make wine in their own back yards out of the available fruits and berries found there. Wine should not be intimidating or pretentious. It should be something you enjoy!
