Which color liquor is the strongest?!

Question: Which color liquor is the strongest?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

color doesn't have anything to do with strength, all liquor starts colorless, or clear, and is flavored and colored afterward

Their are two ways of increasing alcohol content: aging and distilling.

Aged liquors are distilled first, then barreled up to be aged. These are also known as your dark liquors and the barrels are where the color comes from. They ferment further in the barrel, increasing their alcohol content, but if they take on too much characteristic of the barrel, it ruins the product. They remove the lower quality product, which will keep a lower alcohol content, usually between 80 and 100 proof, or 40% and 50%. The finer product will be allowed to age, increasing its alcohol content, sometimes as high as 120 proof, or 60% alcohol. Aged rum is sometimes produced as high as 151 proof (the process I described is mostly for whiskey, it might vary for others, such as this- I suspect they further distill after aging)

Liquors that are not aged, which will be clear, are simply distilled until the producer reaches the desired alcohol content. This means their is no real limit to their abv. While mostly they leave proof in the same range as aged liquor in order to maintain a smooth taste, some products are concerned only with high alcohol content. Sometimes called high-proof vodka or more often grain alcohol, they can be almost pure alcohol. One of the most popular brands, Everclear, has a 190 proof variety (95% alcohol) that is illegal in many states.

Ummm..... Well MOST liquor is 80 proof which means it's 40% alcohol. That goes for vodka or whiskey/rum.......but I guess 'clear' would be the right answer since most moonshine or homemade alcohol which is high in alcohol content is clear..


the color doesn't matter when it comes to strength. but go white and go with some irish whiskey lol

Clear, Moonshine, But any Liquor will get you where you want to be....

probably clear

Clear is.
