"It is... it is... It is green."

- Data in 2369

Aldebaran whiskey was a strong, green alcoholic beverage, favored by Guinan, who kept a bottle behind the bar in Ten Forward. It was a gift from her friend, Jean-Luc Picard.

In 2369, Data served Montgomery Scott the drink of Aldebaran whiskey, although he was unsure of its characteristics beyond its color. Scotty found this beverage quite satisfying and drank most of the bottle himself, although he shared a couple of glasses with Picard. (TNG: "Relics")

Data's description of the whiskey in "Relics" of "it is green" was a nod from episode writer Ronald D. Moore to Scotty's same description of a drink to the Kelvan Tomar in "By Any Other Name". (Star Trek Encyclopedia) Most likely, the drink in that episode was Aldebaran whiskey as well.

In 2371, Quark discovered an empty bottle of Aldebaran whiskey in his brother Rom's room that was taken from Quark's "private stock." (DS9: "Prophet Motive")

Several barrels of Aldebaran whiskey were kept in storage in several of Deep Space 9's cargo rooms. (DS9: "Explorers", "Distant Voices")

Background information

Green drink, 2268

The green drink in Enterprise

The green drink seen in ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II" is another "tip of the hat" to the green drink seen originally in "By Any Other Name", and is most likely Aldebaran whiskey.
