    Spirits are distillate. Uisce Beatha, Aqua vitae, Whisky. The "essence" of the grain. That said, grapes make fine liquors, aside from the foreshots being heavy with all the nasty hangover things..

    A fine brandy will be nice if the wine is not to your taste. Love me some Italian table wine. Goes well with sunday Ragu.
    I mostly make beers (mash) and have made mead as well as wine. As with cannabis, quality in, quality out. Your climate makes quality so you should be good:bigjoint:

    I think it's a shame people don't make wine out of prickly pear cactus fruit. Seems a lot more sustainable than grapes, IMHO.

    Also, I have about 100 pounds worth of overgrown agave plants to dispose of, but unfortunately I believe they are not the species used to make tequila or mescal.

    I've done that, just put it all back in the fermenter for a bit. Waste of corks but so what.
