Two glasses of Vulcan brandy

Vulcan brandy was an alcoholic beverage produced by the Vulcans, the liquor being a pale amber in hue.

In 2377, after several Maquis crew members commandeered the USS Voyager (under the influence of Teero Anaydis' mind control), Chakotay and Tuvok shared a brief drink of Vulcan brandy before Chakotay tested Tuvok's loyalty to the Maquis by ordering him to fire a phaser at Captain Janeway (with nothing happening, as the phaser was in actuality defective). (VOY: "Repression")

A Vulcan port would also be mentioned in DS9: "The Maquis, Part I". The existence of Vulcan brandy would seem most curiously to contradict a previous statement set forth by Spock in "The Conscience of the King", where he noted "My father's race was spared the dubious benefits of alcohol". See the article on alcohol for a more comprehensive discussion of the issue.
