Isn't it great how every country has at least one "special" folk drink 
(usually of high proof) with local and personal variations. The USA has 
"Moonshine" corn whiskey, Brazil has Cachaca rum , Ireland has "Pots 
Still" (Poteen) and I know just about every Scandinavian country has 
something "out back in the shed..."  variations on Akvavit

and they probably all have many many songs about them!   (OKOM content)

some interesting drinks from all over the globe from time to time ;-)
