Superglue

A designated driver would probably appreciate something made just for them

Would super glue impart any flavours or chemicals to gin do you think? By the fact that it is super glue I imagine that it is not reactive to much, but thought I'd better check.

Never enough time....

No idea on the answer but I'm intrigued to know why you are asking.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

Only if you're sniffing it and using the gin as a chaser.

I wouldn't I doubt it is foodsafe, though it was developed in the vietnam war to glue soldiers back together. The other thing to remeber is it isn't very stable in water I don't think.

Ditto.

Also intrigued why it is called superglue, it sticks skin to skin or skin to anything else, but seems sod all use for sticking anything else to anything else.

I was rebottling some of last year's sloe gin into a more decorative bottle to give to my sister in law because she loves sloe gin. Sadly I broke the cork part out of the bottle cap (I think it was just glued on in the first place) but it was the only pretty bottle I had so I glued it back together.

The gin can touch the super glue if the bottle is inverted. I'm pretty sure the gin is all going to get drunk this weekend though so it doesn't matter too much. I love it when drinking is the solution.

Avoid using the stuff when pissed. We trialed it when it first came on the market in the 1970s to stick pearls. After a decent Friday lunchtime session three of us set about sticking a load. This was a usual Friday task as it was nice and easy after a few but not this Friday. We all had fingers stuck together and got into a hell of a mess. The next week went back to Araldite for safety reasons.

If it's not in permanent contact with the liquid this will be fine, especially if it's only relatively short term.

I have uses it to stick live soft corals to rocks in my aquarium. They do then naturally attach but it give them a helping hand.
