That booze, will it be back?
« on: 21.06.2007, 17:57:38 »

Hi Just quickly asking if anyone has got any idea if the Cougars Liquors will be back at the next Eurofurence? They were popular at EF10 and 11, but they weren’t, or I did see them on sale at EF12.

Anyone got any information if they will be back?

There's a good possibility. However it may happen that we're going to sell them only as "collectors item". The hotel will NOT be amused if they see people drinking the stuff anywhere in the public areas instead of buying drinks at the hotel bar ...

Couldn't perhaps a deal be struck with the hotel?
For example, the profits of such sales are split with the hotel 50/50. In return, the hotel will agree to host such spirits for an extended period of time after EF with its regular custom with the same division of profits.

I can imagine there may be a few issues with that suggestion though. I don't imagine the hotel would really want to be flashing the labels of them bottles to their usual clientelle. ;)
(Although if I remember correctly, other labels are available, aren't they?) :)

You know, these Liquorsare not made to make much gain, its a hobby.
More than 90% of the price is really used to produce the stuff, so there is no chance to split the price without making it much more expensive.

Homemade alcoholic Liqueur that comes in a gazillion different flavours and colours. Each sort has a unique silly furry-related (german) name. Such as "Scheeleopardinnenerhitzer" (Snow-Leopardess-Heater) or "Pferdespielzeug" (Horse Toy). Some consider them collector's item because of the label artwork drawn by TaniDaReal.
