Liquor Smugglers Cache drinks

    I am in the midst of getting my mojo together to open an RP tavern (Trinsic, Europa).
    Well, it has been open for a few weeks, while I get into the swing of it, but I just moved to a bigger and better plot, so it's getting serious.
    The bit that got me thinking to come here was writing the menus, which required me to identify the drinks ("brew" is not descriptive, when you're separating it into like Beer, Lager, Ale), but then that became secondary ("Waxing Dark Brew" sounds like a stout, for example).
    What I want to know is the background of the drinks. For reference, the list is:
    • Apple Isle Whiskey
    • Arabella's Gargish Stout
    • Diablo's Blaze Port
    • Eldador Elven Elderberry Wine
    • Equinox Wine
    • Fitch's White Ale
    • Gathered Spirits Blended Whiskey (Pacific)
    • Golden Brew Tavern's Spiced Rum (Baja)
    • Joe's Spicy Creb Shek Brew
    • Kazola's Treetop Wine (Great Lakes)
    • Moonshine
    • Valley's Finest Chardonnay (Napa Valley)
    • Otis' Original Homemade Brew
    • Pandora's Perfect Pinot Noir (Catskills)
    • Red Eye Tavern Specialty Rum (Napa Valley)
    • Royal Guard Brand Ale
    • Salty Dog Paws Mead
    • Sapewin Wines
    • Serpent's Cross Lager (Atlantic)
    • Summer Solstice Brew
    • Vesper Ale
    • Waxing Dark Brew - From The Moonglow Garden (Europa)
    • White Rose Zinfandel
    Each one kind of begs a question...
    Where is Apple Isle, and why to they have a whiskey?
    Who is Arabella?
    What is the significance of "Diablo's Blaze"?
    What is Eldador?
    Stuff like that :)

    Those two make sense.
    The Moonglow Waxing Dark is Europa, relating to the Beer Garden.
    Red Eye Tavern, I read, was a Napa Valley tavern back around '97-'02 (at least)

    Killing time.. wondered what the 'White Stag' forum was.. and found this thread. I can help with a few =)

    Sapewin Wines - Pacific.. Located in Skara/Fel

    Joe's Spicy Creb Shek Brew - Pacific, again located at a small hut on the Skara farms.

    Salty Dog Paws Mead - This one could also be in ref to Pacific. However, the player-run establishment back in 1998-2001 was simply referred to as 'Paws'
