For someone who do doesn't drink

Would you think it'd still be a good idea to stock up on alcoholic drinks? I've read a lot of scenarios where alcohol might come in handy for bartering purposes, as a painkiller substitute, and I've even heard some people claim it's a decent substitute for rubbing alcohol.

How likely would a scenario where we go back to bartering for goods, specifically alcohol, rather than using some form of standardized currency be?

If you guys think it's worthwhile investing in alcoholic beverages, what should I invest in? I've got little knowledge of alcohol to begin with, other than generic terms for types of alcohol, like vodka, whiskey, ect. and a few of the big brand name beer and wine manufacturers. What would even be the best way to store them, just let them sit in my basement for 20 years?

Based on sales the most favored spirits are Vodka, Rum and Whiskey. For longevity and multiple uses, everything I found recommended over 100 proof. Supposed to keep almost forever, can be used medically if necessary and puts the lights out faster. I am not stocking a mass of it, but a case or two of each at a modest price could be very useful. Another small item is cheap butane lighters you can get for .50 from the cut rate stores.
