The Silent Slurp

In 1930, The Silent Slurp became the beverage of choice. It was used as a plague antibody… and a means to “silently” communicate. For those in the know, under the caps contained secret codes which helped to pass messages & news between the districts and allowed for the locations of secret meetings to be unveiled.

The included advertisement was used to promote the sale of Slurp. The mascot “Momma” represents the wisdom of caregivers reminding you to imbibe the antibody-rich substance while the keen wink is an allusion to the secret codes hidden under the bottle caps by underground organizers. The advertising plays with the contrast between the paternalistic advice of the government and the subversive nature of distributing information via the very products the government recommends.

Dinwa

Dinwa, a mild hallucinogenic beverage used at DOL meetups during which they entered into a trance state and “engaged in visions pertaining to Lao” and then afterwards went into the town and wrought havoc on the elites in the name of the cause.

Dinwa is distilled from the eggs of the Naila bird. The Naila bird eats the Chali worms which feed on the leaves of the Muka tree. The hallucinogenic enzyme is produced during the digestive process. The eggs are placed in an absinthe for 10 years for fermentation.

Originally dinwa was made by the local population (similar to the production of moonshine); it was later produced and bottled commercially by Hubbley’s Bottling & Brewing.

Alcohol by volume: 120 proof
