Vodka: Primarily wheat, rye, or other grains. This presents better texture and clarity. Potato vodka is still common, though. Some prefer it for the difference in flavor.
Whiskey: Usually wheat, corn, rye, or barley. The Jack Daniels in the picture is Tennessee whiskey which, like bourbon and white whiskey (moonshine), is corn based. Most other whiskeys use some blend of rye, wheat, and barley. Canadian whiskey usually leans toward rye for flavor, while Irish whiskey leans toward barley for smoothness (I may have that backwards.) Scotch is a blend that is smoked over peat moss before the fermenting/distilling process occurs.
Tequila: Correct, it is blue agave that has been baked in a stone oven. Tequila is actually a type of mescal, which is made from any type of agave or maguey that has been pit smoked, and can be just as diverse as wine.
Rum: Can be made from either sugarcane or molasses. Different brands have their own proprietary spice blends (or are unspiced, like Bacardi) and aging methods, which can drastically change the flavor.
Sake: Correct, it's basically rice wine.
Absinthe: Made from a blend of different spaces and grain. Primarily anise and yes, wormwood. It is neither hallucinogenic or poisonous. You would die from alcohol poisoning before you were able to drink enough absinthe to be affected by the wormwood.
Gin: It's actually made very similar to wheat or rye vodka, but it is flavored in the fermenting process with juniper berries, which is why it smells and tastes like a pine forest.
Wine: Running short on comment space, will reply to myself...

I'm honestly suprised the Irish didn't invent vodka I mean it's alcohol made from potatoes that's like the should be the most Irish thing ever but it's not

The wine one is completely not true. Wine is made by smashing the grapes and letting the sugars become alcohol, they dont peel skin before this step. Its actually a simple answer why there is white wine really.

Wine is not made just from grapes, you can make it from any juice, because that's basically what it is, fermented fruit juice.

the wine one is wrong, it's exactly made how you would think it's made.

Most vodka is made from wheat, not potatoes.

In Sweden it's mostly potato; Russia it's mostly rye. I refuse to drink Polish, so for all I know they're fermenting horse placentas, and drinking American vodka is like buying lobster off the back of a pickup truck in Kansas or going to Dublin and ordering Coors Lite.

Is everything in Asia made from rice?

Absinthe has a tiny amount of wormwood in it, it's not made from it. It's primarily flavored from anise seed extract, but the actual alcohol and fermentation process, before botanicals are added, is almost identical to Gin.

Gin is by far my favorite. I prefer Taaka over Boston or McCormick for when im on a budget, but theres no denying Bombay Sapphire Gin is the best.

I happen to know the owner / producer of a micro distillery, and can tell you from having helped to make some of the worlds best vodka, that it can also be made from grain.

Jack Daniels is bourbon not whiskey.

Yes, I know the bottle says whiskey.
#6 to #2 - Hightower (01/23/2013) [-]
Bourbon is just whiskey produced in a certain graphical reason of the Southern US.
