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 was thinking Johnny Walker or something, im not much of a drinker, so I honestly have no idea!

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 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
