Why buy branded?

Red Cock Vodka from Tesco, 150bht 70cl.

Black Cock Whiskey, 170bht 70cl.

Hong Thong blended Rum, 250bht 70cl.

 

It all tastes the same if you're drinking it with a mixer or in a cocktail.

If you want branded to impress your mates, do what the Thais do, pour the cheap stuff into an expensive bottle.

All of that stuff you mentioned about is utter rot gut mixed or not. It smells terrible, it tastes nasty hence why it is dirt cheap.

 

To the OP, Villa Market has a great selection of branded spirits. Some are not cheap but if you drink Neat that's the place to go. Not sure what branded spirit you are looking for specifically. You can also order online 

Why not the good brands at 7/11?

Nothing to do with impressing my mates, I was intially concerned about possibly being sold fake/poorly manufacturer alcohol, and now as others have said the cheap stuff is gut rot cr@p.  I'm happy to pay a little more to reduce the risk of not knowing what I'm actually putting into my body

 

I'm not at the 150bht per 70cl stage just yet

I see 7/11's sell Absolut Vodka and Bacardi clear rum. They are fairly priced.

 

Villa sells Absolut and other top shelf Vodka's. They also sell a host of various dark and clear rums.

 

I typically do not mix. 🙂

The Absolut is commonly fake here.  Number should be etched in the glass.  711 might be safe, unfortunately mom pop might be unwilling players in the counterfeit game.
