You’re probably familiar with the general process behind how wine or beer are made, but if you’re curious how absinthe is produced, or sake, or palinka, or rum, or even tequila, this fabulous graphic shows you, in beautiful broken down detail that’s simple enough you may be tempted to try it yourself.
Like we said, your common alcoholic drinks and spirits are on the list, although you may have to scroll to find them. Beer, wine, vodka, tequila, rum, gin—the usual suspects are all there with their countries or regions of origin and the basic process behind how they’re created.
What makes the chart really amazing though is the sheer number of spirits and drinks that are specific to different countries and parts of the world that are made in a familiar—yet subtly different—fashion. In the end, they manage to create something delicious and unique to their home countries or cultures that really has to be experienced to be really appreciated.
