Any locally produced alcohol to keep an eye out for??

Answers probably no, but exactly as the title asks, or anything of interest that isn't available nation or worldwide.

Bourbons, tequilas, whatever, just looking for something special to take home, something different...

Alcohol, none that I can think of .

We do have the Orlando Brewing Company which makes organic beer though. It is actually pretty good.

We also have the Lakeridge Winery in Clermont. Some of the wines are not too bad, but they are not on par with the ones in California.

There used to be a lot of sugar cane grown down near Belle glade.

Are there any rums maybe?

Not locally produced, but maybe you can pick up some Everclear. Unfortunately it looks like you can't pick up the 190 proof version in Florida.

Oooh, just the word Everclear makes my head hurt ;-) I tried hubby's Landshark once. I'm no expert but it tasted a lot like a Bud to me.

I don't like Bud, I thought it was a bit better than that ;-) But not as good as say, Corona.

My current fave is Yuengling.

I was just going to suggest Yuengling....

Although it is not technically local to Florida(it is more local to Philadelphia/PA/Jersey other surrounding states)....

I do know that they sell Yuengling down there as family from up here who moved down there still love to get it.

Well, I'm not a proper judge. It was Landshark or something truly dull at the Poly concierge lounge. I'm usually an amber or ale girl but this stuff was free. I just remember that it's very pils. Scott liked it but he likes Bud Light. Good thing because he's now on that super-low cal stuff.

While we're plugging locals-if anyone hits the New Orleans booth at Food and Wine have an Abita Amber for me. It's a fab hot day beer and brewed just 50 miles down the road from me :-)
