Home Bar -- Part 1

Morning All,

Today I have a small post on how to stock a home bar. Everyman at one stage or the other plans of having a separate bar / den in their home for themselves. Well, it is important to have one. It is also important to know how to stock a home bar. So, I have a small article today on various brands under different spirit segments that might look cool in your den. A detailed article on creating that perfect bar with information and notes on brands, liqueurs, bitters, juices, will be posted soon.

Rules for stocking a home bar include:
Home Bar Counter
  • Pick spirits that you enjoy. The main guest of home bar is you and not occasional friend who visits you once a month
  • Start Small. You needn't spend a fortune on the den to enjoy a real good day. A half a dozen base spirits and a few mixers is all you need for a huge party

Some of the cool brands include:

Luxury Scotch
  • Gin: Plenty of brands to choose from including London Dry Gin, Plymouth gin, Old Tom Gin, Dutch or Genever Gin, Dry Fly, Hendrick's Gin.
  • Vodka: Vodka is a must for it mixes with almost everything. Brands worth mentioning include Absolut, Blue ice, 360 Vodka, Winter Palace, IDOL, Stoli Elit
  • Scotch: Luxury brand Black Dog. The 21yr old and the 18 yr old are quite different and give you a great experience. 
  • Rum: To compliment your taste, choose from Dark Rum, Light Rum, Gold Rum, Spiced Rum and other flavors.
  • Wine: A bottle of Red wine and a bottle of White Wine are essentials, when entertaining guests.
  • Beer: A dozen bottles would be cool. Brand ain't very important here.

Am I missing something? Any more cool brands that I have forgotten to add?? Do let me know.
