Half of them were guzzling bathtub hootch from little brown cough-syrup bottles...

Has anyone any idea bout the meaning of bathtub hootch, I reckon it's a sort of shitty drink but could you be more especific?

thank you

    I've met some people that still make their own liquor at home, like gin, vodka, sour mash, and the famous "white lightning." Some of these are pretty good, but watch out, they're usually well over 100 proof.

    Adge is correct on the history. Also, in addition to being a bad drink, it implies that it can be dangerous, because many people that would make this stuff weren't exactly chemists, and poorly made alcohol can have VERY negative consequences for you if you drink it.
