It’s a new week and alcohol is still one of our favourite things. Through this weekly round-up, we bring to you, the most interesting Unsobered happenings from around the world. Read on:
Quarter Canteen opens in Bandra

High-end versions of country liquor to hit the market
If you are a fan of Indian country liquor, rejoice! Because Maharashtra government has decided to clear the decks for cheaper alcohol by allowing manufacturing of high-end versions of country liquor. With reduced alcohol quotient and better flavours, this range will exclusively cater to people who consume Indian Made Country Liquor (IMFL) brands. Affordable, legal and familiar, it checks all the boxes.
The Disney Magic Kingdom to get way better
For over four decades, Disney World hasn’t allowed the consumption of alcohol inside the Magic Kingdom. It’s famously known that there’s a tradition established by Walt Disney himself at Disneyland, where alcohol is still only available at the secretive members-only restaurant Club 33. However, now they have announced that there will be alcohol available in every sit-down restaurant in the Magic Kingdom and the internet is going crazy with #HammeredDisney memes. But we totally understand it, parents who are done running behind their hyper-active toddlers do deserve a drink or two.
Two bottles of whisky auctioned for 14 crores
Good whisky is no less than a treasure. The Bonhams auction has sold two of the rarest vintage Macallan bottles for a whopping 14 crores in Hong Kong. A Peter Blake 1926 and a Valerio Adami 1926, both these bottles weren’t seen in public for over 30 years. According to Daniel Lam, the head of Fine Wine and Whisky Bonhams Asia, these two bottles are the most significant whiskies ever produced in the 20th century and truly presented a once-in-a-generation opportunity for collectors to acquire the Holy Grail of Macallan.
The cocktail season is upon us
We are jealous of anyone who is in Brooklyn currently because St. Agrestis Spirits, an Amaro brand, is selling Negroni four-packs right now. Yeah, you heard that right! They serve four 100 ml bottles of ready-to-drink, “bittersweet” and “deeply aromatic” Negronis in style. This is a trend that needs to catch on. India, you listening?
