Berries

Berry Ocky Rot was a fruit wine containing 17% alcohol.[1] It was made from berries, which the label boasted were picked and pressed by the "fair hands" of "our best house elves," and aged in oaken bungbarrels for a thousand years.[1]

The beverage was sold at the Hog's Head pub in Hogsmeade.[1] Horace Slughorn and Rubeus Hagrid got drunk on a bottle of it after Aragog's funeral in 1997.[2]

Etymology

Berry ocky is a Newfoundland English term for a drink made from wild berries (especially lingonberries).[3] "Rot" may be related to rotgut, an English slang word for cheap, low-quality liquor.[4] "Rot" is also German for red.
