      This is actually a real thing. Cognac is just a brandy from France.
      I thought cognac was made in the USA for African-Americans, though.

        Cognac is a commune of France. They make good brandy and have an AOC on calling it Cognac. Saying "it's just brandy" is like saying a single malt scotch is "just whisky"

            They're not just smaller sized bottles, dum dum. They're literally single serving bottles that were designed to be sold on airplanes - for obvious reasons. Up until 10 or 15 years ago you'd only really see them on airplanes, but now they're sold everywhere. It has nothing to do with any law.

              Nah, miniatures have been a staple at liquor stores since forever. Most people know them from airplanes, but corps ain't letting potential profit go - they've been purchasable for a long, long time. Stores, planes, trains, cruises, hotels, all of em have em. Heck I remember seeing em in hotels as a kid back in the 90's.

                No they fricking haven't. Up until relatively recently they were a novelty you'd only see when traveling (i.e. on airplanes or in hotels). The idea of them being sold as a way to try different things without having to commit to an entire bottle is very recent.

          theyve always been available and they're in your local liquor store on the shelf behind the counter
          they're intended for cooking or one-off wienertails so you dont have to buy a whole $80 bottle of shit to make rumballs.

          I worked in a liquor store part time and there were people who would come in and buy litearlly 10 or 20 of them, which is 3-5 times more expensive than just buying a bottle with the same or more volume

    Cognac is part of rap culture, to put it nicely. Be prepared for it to be priced accordingly and locked up behind the counter. Maybe rethink your recipe to use something else.

            Open container of any alcoholic beverage is illegal in the USA. You can't drink a beer or a glass of wine in any public place, that means all streets, sidewalks, public parks, beaches, etc. You can only transport alcohol still sealed in its original container, and open it only in private residences or businesses that carry specific licenses.

          How is doing away with liquor brands "casual communism"? That's like the opposite of communism, especially when you replace them with one brand produced by the government. In communism there'd be more variety of liquor, and it would be decommodified and produced in a non-exploitative manner...why are we talking about this again? I was just suggesting that OP buy a regular bottle of brandy instead of expensive cognac, since he's just going to be cooking with it. I'd recommend pic related (yes, there's a difference in quality even between cheap brands; I have no idea why anon wants to get rid of variety).

              The "government" wouldn't produce anything in true capitalism. "The government" wouldn't even be in entity in the way we think about it now. Beer might be pumped directly into your house, but it would more likely come from decentralized, individual small batch brewers. Doesn't seem too unreasonable.

    Dude, they literally sell the little bitty bottles at the liquor store for a few bucks a pop to let you try shit, each one is a shot's worth. ALL of the liquor varieties have them, but it's limited to bottom shelf cheapo brands. They even make handheld bottles too, they are like 200-300ml or whatever.

    Don't frick with a bar. You will pay the price for a fricking full 750ml bottle from just those two shots, and it's probably illegal or some shit in your state to have some sort of "open" alcohol container in the car.
