I do make my own wine and I make it strong. You would be surprised and many people find wine more palatable. I have thought of distilling it to make brandy but I would have to make considerably more than I make now and I don't think it would be sustainable in a SHTF scenario.
You are right though and I buy the smaller bottles of whiskey, vodka and rum from time to time for that very purpose. Not only is alcohol going to be as good as gold and silver, but people will give me their gold and silver to get it.
It does make me think that I should stock up on sugar and sealable containers.
