Firewhisky is an alcoholic drink that is consumed by wizards and witches. Those under the age of seventeen are not allowed to buy it, implying that they may not be allowed to drink it. This rule is not always followed. Popular brands include Ogden's Old Firewhisky and Blishen's Firewhisky. It is known to cause a burning sensation when drunk, and for filling one's body with courage.


Ron Weasley commented that he could most likely purchase Firewhisky at the Hog's Head during the Dumbledore's Army meeting, believing that the barman would not bother to check his legal rights to consume it. Hermione was angered at that, furiously reminding him of his prefect status. He instead had Butterbeer.

Harold Dingle offered to sell firewhisky to Seamus Finnigan and Dean Thomas for their "dusk-till-dawn end-of-exams celebration."

Romilda Vane gave Harry Potter a box of Chocolate Cauldrons, claiming that they had Firewhisky in them, though they were really laced with a powerful Love Potion.

After reaching The Burrow after departing Number 4, Privet Drive, Harry Potter drank a toast to Alastor Moody's memory with Firewhisky, served by Bill Weasley, a few days before Harry's seventeenth birthday.
