Key Bottles For Your Home Bar

Bitters

We all have that friend that pretends to be a 'mixologist', besides sugar & bitters turns any horrible whisky or bourbon into an old fashioned and you into an entertainer. 

My Pick:  Angostura


Vodka

Because at least one other writer here is definitely into Crossfit, just stock up on lime and soda water.

My Pick: Aylesbury Duck


Gin

It's trendy right now, give it a go without horrible tonic water and you might find you like it.

My Pick: McHenry & Sons


Scotch

Good scotch is like life before you got into a relationship; single, simple and rich.

My Pick: Old Pulteny


Rum

*Insert an inappropriate metaphor about the way I like my women*   (Dark, Sweet and multi-award winning)

My Pick: El Dorado 15


Bourbon

Bogans, everyone knows, is related to or happens to be one. Caution, can include country music.

My Pick: Michters


Shiraz

Because Australians can't pronounce Syrah

My Pick: Coonawarra


Tempranillo

Sometimes you want to drink wine but don't want it to taste it

My Pick:  Torres Coronas 2011


Pinot Noir

We all saw the movie Sideways too you know

My Pick: Central Otago


Savignon Blanc

Just in case you accidentally bring home a milf from the beach

My Pick: Marlborough something something


Chardonnay

Keep it oaked and buttery and you might just shock a real connoisseur

Champagne

No, no, no, the real stuff. If you're really going to pay more for bubbles just sack up and buy something decent.

My Pick: Perier Jouet
