yea, i thought the same thing. At first it seemed like vodka but the length of the chug led me to believe it was water, like he was trying to sober up for a battle of wits

I still think it's vodka. Why couldn't they just put a little "XXX" on the bottle?

no, i still think its water.  daniel drinks whiskey the whole film.  why would he suddenly start CHUGGING vodka?  i think its water because he also swigs from his whiskey flask.

Isn't there a reaction shot of Eli, and he seems a little shocked/horrified by the chugging?

Can someone find this in the script?

It's in a plastic bottle too, isn't it? I'm not aware of Vodka that comes in plastic bottles. Still, there's a reaction shot of Eli being shock/horrified during the water chugging. Doesn't make complete sense.

the script mentions a lot of empty bottles lying around at the beginning of the scene and never mentions the massive swig directly but it does say "Daniel pours himself a drink." i'm pretty sure the bottle isn't plastic. it's a used glass liquor bottle. the label has been taken off but you can still see bumps of a brand name on it if i remember right. why would he pour new liquor into an old bottle? my gut said it was vodka on my first view because it's such a shocking image/progression of his drinking, but i'm beginning to believe water. help me, journalists!
