Hi all,

I'm trying to buy about 5 litres of 95% spyritus vodka, to use as a mixer. Where having a large party, it's not for personal use :)

Is there anywhere in the U.K I can source this,at a good price ?

Thanks for any help

Very, very bad idea..... trust me bad idea. You won't have a party, every one will have two or three drinks and then ZONK!!! everyone passes out, I'm not kidding I have experimented with Spiritus and it completely and utterly ***** me up and then i pass out period.

Stick to vodka.

If you want something strong may i suggest this Finnish vodka called Koskenkorva it is 60% abv.
This will also completely mess you up, but Spiritus you are seriously risking alcohol poisoning.

I agree with Maybe. Don't mess with Spyrytus unless you can really hold your alcohol. Heck old Polish alcoholics (┼╝ule) don't even drink it. It's not vodka by the way.

Agreed. People buy that stuff to make fruit nalewka with - that and sterilise surgical instruments. It isn't for drinking. The only people who drink it are one step away from drinking meths.

I'm with the other guys. The first time I tried Spirytus was also my last. I was told that it should be drank ideally with distilled water. I sacked it off and tried to have a shot of it mixed with cola. 2 glasses later I was on my ass.

Just get some Zubrowka, can't go wrong with it :)

True - the distilled water thing.

Spirytus is excellent for cakes, when trekking long distance, and also, Eric Clapton style, for dipping calluses in a saucer of the stuff when fingers are sore from too much E string :)

A very versatile concoction and according to Mrs Beeton should be in every well equipped kitchen.
