Kumis has no everclear as an ingredient. I made up some once upon a time.
Cow instead of mare, sweetened and thickened with a touch of condensed
milk, and I held back on the salt. Let it arbitrarily ferment for 2 weeks
in glass, instead of a goat skin, keeping it cool and well agitated. Those
who tried it at Stargate A&S seemed to find it odd, but drinkable.

I wonder if Gillian could get mare's milk in the spring...
