The first-fruits are for the Little People, who appraently in Ireland have far higher tolerance to dissolved lead salts.
Added DiffLines:
** Distillers of ''poitin'' in Ireland had a superstition that the first glassful of any new brew out of the (lead) pipe of the still was for the faery folk. Any human incautious enough to drink this sacred offering would be cursed, by the Sidh-folk, with blindness and insanity. Actually the first use of the still flushed out toxins, poisons and lead salts that really ''could'' kill somebody: after the system had cleansed itself, the subsequent distillate was as safe as it got.

* Brody assembled a still from the lab/kitchen tools aboard Destiny in ''Series/StargateUniverse''. The drinks usually taste horrible, though this might be attributed to the flora of that galaxy.

* The flight deck crew in the new ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' set up a still and are harshly reprimanded for it by Chief Tyrol... [[DoWrongRight because it was a sloppy job that made "liquor" liable to kill someone]], and teaches them to build a better version. Later, Colonel Tigh catches Tyrol brewing liquor to trade for engine parts, directs him to the parts he needs, and takes a jar as payment.

Added DiffLines:
** Another defector, Viktor Suvorov, wrote in his semi-autobiographical book how during the invasion of Czechoslovakia, his unit came across an alcohol plant. Next day, all the soldiers were a bit drunk. The commanders conducted a search, and everything that could hold water turned out, naturally, to be full of alcohol. They poured it all out, yet soldiers kept turning up drunk. No one could figure out where the alcohol was... until Suvorov bribed one soldier to reaveal that [[spoiler:the radiators of the APC's were filled with alcohol instead of water.]]
