For a review of a pedestrian corn whiskey made by a small batch Texas distillery.


I want this known. Hipster mixologists will be using this term soon, and I want you to know who coined it.

 sorta read that as "coocherie"

I now know what the noise that is usually spelled "lolwhut" sounds like. --Kellnerin

  1. On that note, I will be going to my local fine hootcherie today to pick up my single malt club bottle, Glenmorangie with a charcoal finish on order from the local hootcherie.
  2. Blair's great bad a$$ness reduced to hootcherie and sainthood
unknown: When Amy and I went on the run for ingredients I stopped in the local hootcherie for some Bully Hill wine.

I suspect that the term has been around more or less since the word `hootch'  has been around. But I don't think I've ever seen it applied to a form of hootch.

I thought he was playing on the word "charcuterie", which is about as hipster as you can get these days in the foodie world.  So "hootcherie" would be a bar or restaurant's own homemade (or home-modified) booze.

That's what I had in mind, by technician (4.00 / 1) #11 Fri May 18, 2012 at 08:44:02 PM EST
was a combo of hootch and charcuterie. Very hipster.

Just because are words are homophonic or homonymic doesn't mean that they are the same word.

I tried to point something like that out in my post but my pointing was more like vague hand-waiving.
