I don't know what the correct word for brandy actually is.  As you know Slivovica is "plum brandy" and I suppose "rakija" could also be used for brandy or whiskey.  Serb1389 might know better, as my experience usually deals in drinking, not linguistics.  Cheesy

Rum, I believe, is it's own classification.

There are certain general categories, depending on what makes up the drink:

Wines (grapes), Beers (fermented wheats, rice), Brandy/Cognac (distilled wine), Vodkas (distilled potatos), Whiskey (which includes Scotches), Rum, liqueurs, etc.

I don't know what goes into some of the categories... I acutally think GiC knows more about this than I do (actually -he definitely does).

Well if bourbon and brandy are in the same catagory as cognac, that's what we would call it, cognac.  Cognac for us is a generic term for all of that type of drink. 

Technically, there are specific names in serbian for "ouzo", "zipouro", and anything else you could think of.  If you give me a drink I can find out what we call it. 

Generically any alcohol that is "combustible" is called "rakija".  Hell, anything that's harder than wine and beer is rakija.  The REALLY vile stuff is called "domaca" cuz its made at home "dom" = house, home.

Bourbon is distilled grains, Brandy and Cognac are distilled wine; so they are not in the same category as each other.  But I don't doubt that they would be called the same thing in Serbian, as often they are also all called "cognac" in Greek.

Well, you could be the Cardinal Archbishop of Scotch...but we object to drink more bourbon than our Inebriatedness (literally), who is currently sitting under the Thrid Confederate National Flag, Drinking Makers Mark Bourbon, AND Listening to Confederate Music from the War for Southron Independence (including my personal favourites, 'The Kentucky Battle Song' (will boil the blood of any man loyal to the Southron cause) 'Oh, I'm a Good Old Rebel' (strongly recommended for those who hate yankees as a result of reconstruction), and 'Stonewall's Requiem' (more than enough to bring a tear to the eye of any person who has a hint of humanity within them, along with 'Wearing of the Grey') amongst many others)...my exile to this most cursed land of New England Yankeedom will not last for eternity.

I would agree that the title of Cardinal Archbishop of Scotch might be very appropriate for our beloved Admin.  If the other senior members of the synod wouldn't object, we could expidite this process... It is all up to the President of the Synod (+GIC) to call the meeting and call the vote!

I would also vote yes if the question came up... I think he will do well for the holy Archdiocese of Scotch, spreading the Good News of the Great Distiller with pride, and encouraging camaraderie and fellowship through the imbibing of his Thronal Drink.

Well, we have three Yea votes...a majority of the sitting bishops on the synod, but no reason not to make it unanimous, hopefully chris and serb1389 can either cast their votes on the thread or either the Metropolitan of Metaxa or myself can secure them in person.

I guess I should tell you that, in general, I am not in favor of unanimous votes....

I am curious regarding how this prospective candidate to the Synod will spread the Evangelion of the Great Distiller, increasing the camaraderie of all those Imbibing the all-honorable thronal beverage?

It is noted that the candidate stated that...

Quote
I consume more scotch and bourbon than all of ya'lls combined. Not tm mention I live in the south!


This is, literally, impossible, as anyone who knows both me and GiC will never be able to drink more than us combined....

perhaps we need to call him to the Synod to determine if this is mere idle banter as he tries to imbibe more than even just l'il old me, much less myself and GiC. If he imbibes more than us, then clearly he has an affinity to the thronal drink in question; however, when he loses and is brought to salvific humility the next morning as he holds on to his porcelain throne, then he may be worthy.

So, perhaps he needs to present himself to the Synod with multiple amounts of the beverage in his hands for the Synod to sample, even those in distant lands such as SS, to verify his worthiness for this title. Certainly he should be permitted to bring his attendants and entourage, but otherwise I must withhold my vote until it can be demonstrated that Robert is truly worthy of serving the Great Distiler.

Oh, cmon... Let's see, more than "all y'all combined?"  I think if one were to combine Chris, GiC, serb1389, and I for one night of imbibing, we wouldn't be measuring our conquests in terms of how many ounces or glasses, but how many bottles....

...liter-sized bottles!

You mean the 1.75 litre bottles that I buy...they do need a larger size though, they just disappear too quickly. Wink

The Bishop of Bourbon is good indeed, keeping the distilleries in business single-handedly, helping promote camaraderie amongst the members of the synod, and providing retirement funds for a generation of liver and kidney doctors...

I personally would vote yes, but I agree that this candidate needs to be put underneath synodal scroutiny.  There's no WAY he drinks more scotch than all of us combined.  Maybe the party in question can give us an idea of how much scotch he can have in ONE (1) hour?  We could probobly start there.  Any other ideas (synod?)??

All of a sudden, our Synod of Spirits has become quite popular, no?

Common now, how many of us have fantasized meetings and discussions like this, especially about something which we all can relate to....alcohol.  haha.

Oh boy, there is a lot for the Holy Synod of Spirits to vote upon...

Acutally, a good portion of the Synod was meeting together tonight in subcommittee: Commission for the study of the effects of alchohol on the watching of Animal House.  It is a standing subcommittee that has met for a number of years - but has not able to been report.  We feel that if we have a few more points of data (oh, shucks, we have to watch the movie again!) that we may be able to use...

Fantasized?  A bit too strong a word here, serbski.  But wished or hoped for?

"Today instead of speaking on the Theological Implications of the writings of Photios the Great with respect to the relationship of the Father to the Spirit in the Trinity, as originally scheduled, we will speak on the  comparative benefits of different types of alchohols, and will elect hierarchs in this class to represent the different groups.  This mock synod of drinks will count for both the midterm and the final."

His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, Vicar of the Great Distiller, Successor to the Prince of the Apprentices of the Great Distiller, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, Patriarch of all Grain-Based Alcohols, Primate of Kentucky, Archbishop and Metropolitan of All Whisky, Sovereign of Loretto, and Servant of the Servants of the Great Distiller, Presiding Bishop of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

To His Imbibedness +ROBERT, the Cardinal Archbishop of Scotch, and all Cardinal, Patriarch, Archbishop, Metropolitan, Bishop, Priest, Deacon, Monastic, and Faithful Consumers of Alcohol,

With a yea vote from all save one member of the Holy Synod of Spirits, and the abstaining hierarch +CHRIS of Mead and all Beer objecting on grounds not of suitability for the posistion but for the outlandish claim that Robert could drink more Burbon than not only Our Inebriatedness, but more than the entire Synod Combined. Thus the Synod Elevates +ROBERT to the Archbishopric of Scotch. Furthermore, as this See is within the Jurisdiction of the Bishop of Bourbon, Archbishop and Metropolitan of All Whiskey, and Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, Our Inebriatedness further elevates His Imbibedness +ROBERT, Archbishop of Scotch, to the posistion of Alcoholic Cardinal, for a See as estemed as Scotch should certainly be held in high regard amongst the Whiskeys. However, this is all done on the understanding that His Imbibedness will present himself before this most Holy and Alcoholic Synod, with Spirits in hand, representing the Fruits of His Imbibedness See, and gifts representing the Fruits of Our Inebriatedness' See, and attempt to prove his claim of being the Drinker-Under-the-Table of the Entire Synod, and in doing so he shall either vindicate himself showing the unbelievable to be true, that is to say outdrinking the entire Synod; or, as is more likely to be the case, by kneeling before the porcelain throne be brought to humility and repentance.

His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, and Servant of the Servants of the Great Distiller, President of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

In a similar vein as with Robert, I also would support the elevation of the candidate Pedro, as long as he proves himself worthy of such office by enduring and surviving synodal scrutiny.

I eagerly awaitt he arrivals of both Robert and Pedro and their attendants and entourage, in order to increase the camaraderie among the members of the Synod.

However, I must ask that this meeting not take place immediately, as some members of the Synod have not yet fully recovered from the syndesmos that occurred last evening.

The running tally for candidate Pedro is 3 aye, 0 no, 0 abstention, 2 unentered.

The Syndesmos last evening was delightful, as we were able to partake in the Thronal Drinks of both the Diocese of Bourbon and the Metropolis of Metaxa, while studying the effects that the imbibing of the thronal drinks with the watching of such films as Johnny English and National Lampoon's Animal House has on the general camaraderie.

For those interested, and who will come to the Boston area, we will have future syndesmoi with other types of movies in the same vein (Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Animal House - a regular, etc.); the Synod of Spirits does not discriminate against the members of the faithful who wish to co-imbibe (as long as it isn't against the law - noone under 18 will partake of the Thronal Drinks).

Uhhmmm...I thought here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, the minimum drinking age is 21.

It's in the Blessed Land that is Ohio where the legal drinking age is 21, but the socially defined mandatory drinking age is usually a bit younger...

Please don't play into the hands of the people's Republic by indicating you feel that Massachusetts legislation should be enforceable in areas outside of this state (and that's as close to politics as I'm willing to go on this thread Wink)

No, if the beverage was obtained legally given the laws there, that should be fine.

{Aside}
While I like German beer, my favorite brews and the ones I make at home are more often from UK or Belgian recipes. The Rheinheitsgebot has served to restrict experimentation, although it does serve to keep producing very good beer.
