  1. Hi danny31081:

    Thanks for the fascinating question! To answer it, I found the

    entire movie script online and went through it picking

    out everything that the two characters consumed – some

    of which might not be thought of as "traditional" drinks.

    (I felt this was a preferable strategy to watching the movie

    since the script often mentioned what type of drinks were

    being consumed.)

    As well, there are many times in the script where it is implied

    that Withnail and I have been drinking between scenes.

    Since I cannot be sure what it was they drank, I left these out –

    except when there was a *direct* implication, such as a request

    for "another double scotch" or "you are plastered on scotch".

    In those cases, I included the implied drinks.

    The script can be found at:

  2. Thank's for the answer but I only wish to know which drinks either of

    them can be seen to drink during the movie.

  3. Hi danny31081:

    Thank you for the clarification request. I will get a copy of the film

    (if I can) and cross-reference it with the script. That way I can

    identify as many of the drinks as possible.

    Thanks for your patience.
