Aka Rectified spirit is basically ethanol which undergoes rectification i.e. it is purified by repeated distillation.

Manufactured by an American company, Luxco, it was conferred as the most alcoholic drink in the year of 1979 by Guinness Book Of World records. It is also a form of rectified spirit. The main ingredient is corn fermented with genetically modified organisms. Everclear has no additives at all, and with the alcohol content so high you have to mix it with other drinks. It is banned in so many states in the USA. Fun fact though: You can buy it in Pensylvania, USA only when you give a proof that you are not going to drink it and would use it for other causes like cleaning.

3. Bruichladdich X4 + 1 Quadrupled whisky
This whisky is made in the Isle of Islay, in Bruichladdich distillery in Scotland. The Classic Bruichladdich is contrived from 100% Scottish barley. It is an unpeated single malt scotch whiskey. You might drink a lot but you sure might not know the meaning of it (talking about myself and other alcoholic vocabulary illiterates), here is your glossary. Unpeated malt as in the malt used in this is dried with hot air without any smoke, so that no other components adhere to the malt.

4.River Antoine Royal Grenadian rum
Manufactured in the year 1785, in the island Grenada in the Caribbean, this rum is made by local Grenadian sugarcane via pot stilling method. The River Antoine distillery, where this rum is produced still uses the ancient equipments and has not been modified till date; which keeps the island’s tradition alive. Winter is coming my friends, you might need to take this sip of warmth (more like a sip of fire ). Since it is considered a combustible liquid it is not allowed on planes. So I guess you will have to visit Grenada now.
- 90% ABV
- From Caribbean
This ridiculously strong drink is a homemade Irish distilled whiskey. It is so potent that it was illegal at one time.

Its characteristics has influenced the use of its name for artistic effects in Irish poetry.

6. Pincer Vodka
This grain vodka is cooked up with Wild Elderflower, milk thistle mixed with Scottish mountain water. This is another Scottish brew that has made its cut to the most alcoholic drinks in the world.

- 88.8% ABV
- invented in Scotland
7. Balkan 176 ° Vodka
Another vodka making it to the most alcoholic drinks in the world. This is a Serbian vodka and Balkans is the area where the Serbs reside in eastern Europe having disputed borders. It has 13 different health warning signs, one of them is in Braille! (Damn serious).
