"I clearly state in chapter twelve that my ideal birthday gift would be harmony between all magic and non-magic peoples — though I wouldn't say no to a large bottle of Ogdens Old Firewhisky!"
—Lockhart mentions Ogden's Old[src]

Ogden's Old Firewhisky was a brand of firewhisky, a wizarding variant of whisky produced by Ogden.


This drink was a favourite of Gilderoy Lockhart, and he told his second year Defence Against the Dark Arts class that he wouldn't say no to a bottle for his birthday.

Arthur Weasley also insisted on pouring a bit into a cup of tea made for Molly Weasley after the Riot at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.

Neville and Hannah Longbottom also enjoyed this —  according to Rita Skeeter, much more than any teacher or landlady should[1].
