Good evening,

I'm on the hunt for another bottle of VAT 69. I've checked all over the Chicago-land, Southeastern Wisconsin area and I can not find it. Nor do any distributors that I have talked to know where to find it. I haven't had much luck searching for it on the internet either.

Here's a picture of the two that I have already.



I'm saving these two for a special occasion.

Does anyone have a clue to where I can locate another bottle?

Is that stuff just a plot device, or does it really exist?

I'll check in DE and PA when I get off. See if you can locate a jug of Crested Ten for me.

I'm pretty sure you can find some by randomly breaking into German houses.

Never had it. How is it and how much we talking? ETA. I guess they ship, listed in British Pounds VAT 69 and here

I don't know what it tastes like. The two bottles I have are unopened and still sealed. I actually obtained these two in the Philippines. One has a tax stamp dated 2004 and other is dated earlier, perhaps late 1990's?

It really exists, and really existed "back then".

I'll keep an eye out, OP. I've seen it in some of the stores hereabouts, I just have to remember which

This from the wiki:

In 1914 Sir Ernest Shackleton took supplies of Vat 69 on his Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, stating that it would be used for medicinal and celebratory purposes.

If, and that is a HUGE if you actually knew what you wanted, you would know that you might as well order a case of bowmans...your drink of choice has been nothing but ruin forever.

If you must have GOOD economical liquer...I suggest a bourbon (early times is the best cheap bourban there is), or an Irish whiskey (in which case save your money noob) A reg 1/5th of ok irish whiskey is > or = the best bourban you've had...But you wouldn't know that, would you?

Vat 69 is vile stuff, when I saw it on Band of Brothers I was kind of disappointed that he drank that swill.

As for Crested Ten, I've never been able to find it outside of Ireland, but the last time I checked London was around 2000. It can be ordered, but until I find it locally I will rely on friends bringing it back.

Special occasion?? I assume you mean after your girlfriend/wife cheats on you, police shoot your dog and your house burns down so you decide you might as well finish off the night with some shitty whisky?

From what I've been able to find out, Vat 69 is still in production.

You should probably try to find out which distributor in your market carries it, and arrange to have some sent to a local shop.

If distributors aren't in the Yellow Pages, go to a liquor store where you can talk to the people, and ask if they have a Beverage Journal, which lists what is available, and who distributes it, then go from there.

You want to find something tasty rather than paint thinner with a cameo role? Find me a bottle of Brugal Extra Viejo rum.

The standard Brugal doesn't compete real well with... Well, much of anything. The EV is fantastic though.

Nah, my wife would never cheat on me. I don't own a dog and I live in an apartment.

I've been laid off for four months and I accepted a new job offer today.

Perhaps today is that special occasion.
