This isn't specific to alcohol, and is instead a general mechanism of neural association. When you consume anything and then become sick afterward your brain associates sickness with what you consumed to stop you from consuming it again. From an evolutionary standpoint this makes sense, because it would keep you safe from continuing to eat or drink the ...

Liquor casks are not cleaned between transfers, just emptied and stored until they need them again. The liquor that soaked into the wood makes sure nothing will grow in them. Wine barrels on the other hand, need to be cleaned between transfers. Typically they are rinsed with hot water and then maybe steam. Left to drip dry for a day or two. Then sulfur ...

In Canada you are able to purchase absinthe in most liquor stores including government run liquor stores. Here in British Columbia, I have never seen a liquor outlet without absinthe for sale. They are usually imported from various countries such as the Czech Republic and France. Canada also produces some of its’ own absinthe as is seen here. Liquor ...

To answer your last question first, drinking 1 drink a day will not make you dependent. Drinking 3 or 4 times that amount probably won't make you dependent physically. Physiologically, you might become dependent on drinking for the effects but with that little amount, it would be very tough to be physically dependent. It's more of a bad habit at that point. ...

While I'm not willing to track down specific journals now to source this answer, I can tell you that I've researched this question extensively on Google Scholar to find out the same thing.

Can drinking 45ml of spirit (40%) per day affect your health? A drink or two a day is quite fine to drink providing there is no history of proven alcohol dependency or some other underlining medical problem such as diabetes.

The choices you can make at each point of production: they like 'which of the following are post-production choices' type of questions. Numbers: ABVs, numbers of ...

Just go to a supermarket (the bigger the better and I'd suggest Tesco or Asda) and buy their own brand london dry. It's not nice but it's cheap. If you really don't mind the taste, consider vodka instead as it's often a little bit cheaper and essentially the same stuff without the botanicals. Tesco gin Asda gin Sainsburys gin You're unlikely to get it ...

In Scotland we have MUP (minimum unit pricing) which means you cannot sell alcohol for less than 50p per unit of alcohol so an average bottle of gin (38%) cannot be sold for less than £13.88 per 75cl bottle. The rest of the UK doesn't have this law so can be sold as low as cost price so is subject to supplier but can start from as low as £10 per 75cl bottle. ...
