juices and teas to award-winning beers, perfectly distilled spirits, and even

Fermentation 
-------------
Fermentation is the domain of the wine and beer specialist, allowing the
creation and design of various ales, porters, wines, and the like.

Someone specialised in fermentation can submit a design for a fermented drink, 
FERMENT the drink once approved, place the fermented drink in a cellar to age, 
and then fill the finished drink into drinking vessels to be drunk!

(See HELP BEVERAGES DESIGN)

Distillation
-------------
Distillation concerns itself with the design and creation of various spirits, 
including but not limited to vodka, gin, whiskey, rum, and so on.

Someone specialised in distillation can submit a design for a distilled drink,

Refreshments
-------------
Refreshments is the matter of designing and creating a variety of 
immediately-drinkable beverages. Typically the domain of non-alcoholic 
drinks, the refreshment specialist is however also able to mix cocktails as 
well as steep teas and kawhes, and press juices and cordials.

Someone specialised in refreshments can submit a design for a mixed, steeped, 
or pressed drink, MIX/STEEP/PRESS the drink once approved, and pour into 
drinking vessels to be drunk!

Vessels
--------
To specialise in vessels is to pride oneself not on the drink itself but the 
container in which it resides. Often an elaborate vessel can mask a bland and 
pedestrian drink, and the opposite is also true! Those taking up the Vessels 
craft shall find themselves able to design a variety of drinking containers, 
ranging from traditional wine glasses and sophisticated snifters to a simple 
mug or a drinking horn.

These vessels can then be used to serve fermented, distilled, mixed, pressed, or steeped drinks!

Anyone with access to a vessel NDS id# can request vessels be made by one of
the following denizens.

Vessels only describe the actual vessel, not the beverage it may eventually
contain. There is an aspect in beverage design (INVESSEL) that will add a
description of the beverage itself when it is in the vessel. 


Glassworkers, including Jessie in New Thera will make glass-based vessels.
Potters, including Gazban in El'Jazira will make clay-based vessels.
Stonemasons, including Palusta in Xhaiden Dale will make stone-based vessels.
Woodcarvers, including Tobe Caer Witrin will make wood and bone-based vessels.
Blacksmiths, including Rico in New Thera will make metal-based vessels.
Leatherworkers, including Vanac in Bitterfork will make leather-based vessels.


All non-barrel/cask/keg equipment can be bought at "a cool cellar" in Delos.
