Rum: once the favourite tipple of old sea dogs and blood-thirsty
pirates, rum, with its strong flavour and intoxicating aroma reminiscent
of the romance of the tropics, has since become rather more domestic,
often used as a pick-me-up to add to tea, as well as innumerable cocktails.
Vodka: some say that no drink has such a 'global warming
effect' as vodka. Small wonder it has always been so popular in Northern
countries where winters are long and skies are grey. The Hungarian
consumer has always enjoyed the traditional vodkas from Russia and
Canadian whisky: this legendary drink originates from the
land of ye bonnie banks and braes in Scotland, although whisky is
also made in Ireland and the U.S. where it is spelt whiskey. Canadian
whisky on the other hand is spelt like the original.
