Can anyone provide a list of the spirits usable in the distillery in Bastion, as well as the Narrator's flavor text for each one?

For example:

  • Leechade - "Leechade's so sour, it’ll perk you right up when you’re feeling low."

I'm looking to have a Bastion-themed drinking party with friends, and would like a handy list of the drinks with their descriptions in order to be able to plan for ingredients! Inspiration

Many thanks for the excellent idea ! That's a perfect geeky-party-theme :) I love it (however, your 'inspiration' link hereabove looks dead). –  Anto Jan 4 '12 at 16:53

  • Dreadrum - "Dreadrum's brewed from Swampweeds, so its effect is as bold as its flavor."
  • Fetching Fizz - "Fetching Fizz is like a mouthful of nails, but the benefits are worth it."
  • Werewhiskey - "Werewhisky has no scent but tastes like a peppered bootheel. It's not for everyone."
  • Falling Malt - "Falling Malt is filled with crunchy minerals that'll keep you safe out on them rocks."
  • Lunkhead Liqueur - "A sip of Lunkhead Liqueur will toughen you right up. Too bad it's like drinking a saddlebag."
  • Mender Mead - "Folks say Mender Mead's good for you. It's like an herb garden in full bloom."
  • Cinderbrick Stout - "Cinderbrick Stout sure goes down smooth. Then stays in your gut like a rock."
  • Whale Ale - "Now Whale Ale ain't made from real whale. But it'll make you strong like one."
  • Graver Gimlet - "Graver Gimlet tastes different the longer you swish it around. Miraculous stuff."
  • Leechade - "Leechade's so sour, it'll perk you right up when you're feeling low."
  • Doomshine - "Doomshine's a bit of an acquired taste, like a mouth full of horseradish"
  • Cham-Pain - "Cham-Pain's made with Scumbag extract, hence the barley aroma, and the nausea"
  • Squirt Cider - "Squirt Cider will toughen you right up. Too bad about the musty aftertaste."
  • Hearty Punch - "Hearty Punch is so zesty it'll let you carry on even through the worst of times."
  • Bastion Bourbon - "If you're feeling low, count on the buttery flavor of our own Bastion Bourbon."
  • Black Rye - "Black Rye's like hot vineapple chowder on a cold day. Brings back memories."
  • Bull Brandy - "Bull Brandy's thicker than paint. Makes your skin feel as tough as knifebark."
  • Stabsinthe - "Stabsinthe's like drinkin' a cool breeze. Just don't go spittin' needles everywhere."
  • Lifewine - "Lifewine's so rich, they say it's brought men back from the brink for one last taste."

There's also Hop-Scotch, but it's not available in the distillery, and doesn't have a line.

Sure. Here's a list of all the Narrator lines about the spirits, right from the subtitles.

  • Squirt Cider will toughen you right up. Too bad about the musty aftertaste.
  • Dreadrum's brewed from Swampweeds, so its effect is as bold as its flavor.
  • Fetching Fizz is like a mouthful of nails, but the benefits are worth it.
  • Hop-Scotch is light as sea foam, but you'll feel it in your legs right away.
  • Hearty Punch is so zesty it'll let you carry on even through the worst of times.
  • Falling Malt is filled with crunchy minerals that'll keep you safe out on them rocks.
  • A sip of Lunkhead Liqueur will toughen you up. Too bad it's like drinking a saddlebag.
  • Bull Brandy's thicker than paint. Makes your skin feel tough as knifebark.
  • If you're feeling low, count on the buttery flavor of our own Bastion Bourbon.
  • Doomshine's a bit of an acquired taste. Like a mouthful of horseradish.
  • Black Rye's like hot vineapple chowder on a cold day. Brings back memories.
  • Cinderbrick Stout sure goes down smooth. Then stays in your gut like a rock.
  • Cham-Pain's made with Scumbag extract, hence the barley aroma, and the nausea.
  • Now Whale Ale ain't made from real whale. But it'll make you strong like one.
  • Werewhiskey has no scent but tastes like a peppered bootheel. It's not for everyone.
  • Folks say Mender Mead's good for you. It's like an herb garden in full bloom.
  • Leechade's so sour it'll perk you right up when you're feeling low.
  • Lifewine's so rich, they say it's brought men back from the brink for one last taste.
  • Graver Gimlet tastes different the longer you swish it around. Miraculous stuff.
  • Stabsinthe is like drinking a cool breeze. Just don't go spitting needles everywhere.

Hop-Scotch isn't actually available via the distillery, and I don't think I remember its associated line from the game, but I included it anyway for completeness' sake.
