I always keep an unopened handle of Evan and an unopened handle of Walker Red in reserve.

My liquor cabinet............

The bottles by my glass on the counter are my regular sippin liquor, a bottle of my own artisan crafted bourbon whiskey, and a bottle of my vodka, occupying a vessel of inferior spirit.

My home bar is pretty well stocked with what I like. 3 to 4 gins, 3 to 4 rums, 2 to 3 vodkas, 3 to 4 bourbons and various mixers and liquors. On top of that, my homebrewing operation means that there's always beer, at various stages of readiness.

On this subject however, I'd like all of you to meet someone. This is Voodoo Jim. He guards the strong rum. 73% overproof rum to be exact. There's a long and so far unwritten story about how Jim lost his body and came to contain rum, but never drink it again. A cruel fate! His head is always filled with rum, but not a drop can pass his lips as they're sewn shut. Is he on my side then? Not a fucking chance. Jim curses me with every drop I steal from his head. His sole job is to look me in the eye when I reach for him and make me hesitate. Do I really want this rum? Have I maybe had enough already? Only the head knows...

Excellent. He looks a worthy guardian of the overproof rum...

Voodoo Jim is badass. Seriously that is cool as hell. He probably curses you for mixing his headjuice with Coke.

Jim has been out a couple of times now, feeding his evil to those fools daft enough to accept it. Thank you for the kind words, it's nice to know that not *everyone* thinks I'm a lunatic for getting that made! There's a ceramics place just round the corner from me, great guy runs it. He was more than happy to whip Jim up for me, since his main commission these days is the local tiki bar so he already has all the right source material for reference. When I explained what I wanted it for he just said "I'll double check it's watertight then" and that was that. Consummate professional ;)

A pretty pagan-esque round of chanting seems to have become mandatory whenever Jim emerges, much to the neighbors dismay. And as a general rule of thumb, when Voodoo Jim comes out of his cupboard it's well past the point where you should have stopped drinking.

I've started leaving litres of whisky/rum at friends houses just in case
