As a mere beer drinker, I am handicapped in watching sophisticated dramas when the conversation involves other alcoholic beverages. There's sherry, gin, whiskey, scotch etc. Sometimes I look up the definitions of these things, but since I don't drink them the definitions don't stick in my mind. Could someone please present a nice annotated graph showing how alcoholic beverages are defined and related (or not related) to each other ? A directed graph would be nice. It would show things like "wine" being the parent node of subdivisons like "port". What would the root of the graph be ? Are all these things "spirits" ? Are they all "liquors" ?
