Fermented grains

Whiskey is an alcoholic drink made from fermented grains. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom kept a supply of whiskey in his office. When Cornelius Fudge visited the Prime Minister in 1993 to inform him of the escape of Sirius Black, he offered the Prime Minister some whiskey. The Minister was momentarily insulted, thinking he was being offered his own whiskey by a guest, but Fudge then conjured his own whiskey for the both of them.

Firewhiskey appears to be a wizarding variant of this drink.

Behind the scenes
