Wines and Ales

Arabellan Dry
Arabellan Dry is a fine red and very dry wine that should be served at cellar
temperature to best exhibit its woodsy undertones and slightly berrylike taste.
Cask: 250 cp/Barrel: 6 sp/Butt: 20 sp/Tun: 48 sp

Berduskan Dark
Berduskan Dark wine is a heavy, sweet, and burning wine. It is very dark in hue,
almost black, and high in alcohol content. It is highly prized by some across
the Realms. Once Berduskan dark was bottled in a cooperative effort of guilds in
Berdusk. After a falling out between the Vinters’ and Alchemists’ Guilds the
wine became available in the containers found elsewhere in Faerun.
Hand Keg: 140 cp/Cask: 240 cp/Barrel: 60 sp/Bottle (when available): 12 sp

Blood Wine
Blood Wine, a product of Aglarond, has a heavy body and deep-red tone. The taste
is lush and full, with a slight afterbite. The wine comes from a shriveled
variety of grape that grows on twisted vines, grapes said to be possessed by the
dead who enacted petty cruelties upon others while they lived. True or not,
blood wine has a distinctly heavy flavor.
Hand Keg: 150 cp/Cask: 4 sp/Barrel: 10 sp/Butt: 30 sp/Tun: 70 sp

Clarry
Clarry is a blend of table wines sweetened with honey and spices. It is a treat
for any special occasion.
Hand Keg: 150 cp/Cask: 4 sp/Barrel: 10 sp/Butt: 30 sp/Tun: 70 sp

Evermead
Evermead is an elven mead – the one against which other meads can be judged. A
sip is reputed to be a taste of the higher planes themselves. Made according to
closely guarded traditional methods in Evermeet and allegedly aged for hundreds
of years, very few kegs of Evermead ever reach non-elven hands. Outside of
Evermeet, Evermead can be bought through rare and exotic traders.
Hand Keg: 50 sp/Bottle: 30 sp

Fire Wine
Fire Wine is a thick, dark, almost black wine made in the Old Empires is named
for the fire it creates in one’s belly. Fire wine is an extremely strong and
spicy wine, reputed to have medicinal qualities.
Hand keg: 38 cp/Cask: 180 cp/Barrel: 460 cp/Butt: 15 sp/Tun: 38 sp.

Zzar
Zzar is a type of fortified wine much favored in Waterdeep and the Sword Coast.
It is made of a type of white grape produced in great number in the abbeys of
Goldenfields and other places, fortified with brandy and amaretto to produce a
fiery-orange, almond-flavored beverage that varies in subtlety widely across
vintners and brewers.

Elverquisst
A ruby-colored liquor magically distilled from sunshine and rare summer fruits. Utterly smooth, the liquor is nonetheless flecked with gold and has an iridescence of both color and flavor. It is highly prized at all times, but in the autumn rituals it is savored as if it is the gift of one final, perfect summer day.
