Booze Inventory

The following is a current inventory. As of now it all fits in the hutch. Sort of. Those shelves are 3 bottles deep.

A strike-through indicates that I owned the bottle at one point but I’ve polished it off and have not re-stocked.

    Wow…a collection that exceeds 99% of the bars out there.

    Surprised no Bombay Blue Sapphire

      Ha, thanks, Steve. I’m paring it down a bit — lots of these bottles are 1/3 full, and will be swapped out for something new or finished off.
      I’ve had some great drinks made with Bombay Sapphire, but to tell the truth, it’s not one of my favorite gins — not quite enough edge to it for my liking. It’s all about personal taste, though. If it’s your favorite, enjoy!

    Very impressive! I will be looking forward to your posts. BTW, it was a pleasure meeting you at the last whiskey tasting.
