Letter Re: Storing Whiskey For Barter

• survival blog
I thought of taking empty 187 ML (about 6 oz) wine bottles with screw caps, washing them, refilling with whiskey, placing a short wine cork in top, then screw cap, then wrap in Saran wrap to limit evaporation loss. I would then label bottles with content and date, and store for SHTF. How does this sound to you? Thanks, - Tom R.
JWR Replies: While I don't approve of bartering whiskey, I must concede that many folks do see some utility in it. So, if you feel you must:
In my estimation, saving on the per-unit cost by buying booze in large containers and re-packaging it is false economy. Two of the keys to successful bartering are trustworthiness and readily recognizable products.
