    Im looking for advice on whats a good brand alcohol to buy as a gift for my barber shop.

    So its my cousins barber shop, most of the blokes are early 30's, covered in tatt's and have that old school vibe

    I would go something like Gentleman Jacks or Springbank 12 year old if they are scotch drinkers. Johnny Walker is not that great unless you go Blue or XR.

    What about a nice Scotch, Glenlivet 12 or Laphroaig 10.

    If you want shots, any Tequila Reposado (aged 2 years) certified Blue Agave is a good choice.

    As said before Jack Daniels, if is sold Makers Mark can be either sip or mixed. That is a good US Bourbon at a decent price.

    What are you going to do with it, mix, sip or shots?

    i end up buying the kraken drink - simply because the bottle looked cool to me lol

    one of them did say 'the kraken is better than sailor jerry' so i guess that was a positive. hope they enjoy it! thanks for the advice gents

    I was going to suggest methanol, but you need to tune it alot richer.

    Realised I got the question wrong. Nice looking shop though

    I gave up the booze years ago but this looks cool and would look good on the shelf for sure :)


    LOL, that thought did cross my mind when I first read the thread title. Nothing like a methanol burning beast, best smelling exhaust ever :D
