Wasteland tequila is a consumable item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on, Honest Hearts.


Wasteland tequila is an alcoholic drink which can be brewed by the player. Like many other types of alcohol, it provides a minor status boost - increasing Charisma and Strength by one while reducing Intelligence by one. It also gives added resistance to poison and is visually identical to whiskey.

As with most alcoholic item in Fallout: New Vegas, whiskey's effects (both positive and negative) are altered by the player's Survival skill, including the Damage Threshold increase provided by the Whiskey Rose perk. With a Survival skill of 100 the player will receive +3 to Charisma, +6 to Strength, and -6 to Intelligence, as well as +9 to Damage Threshold if the player has the Whiskey Rose perk.

In hardcore mode whiskey will increase the player's level of dehydration. This effect is also affected by the Survival skill, ranging from +15 at lower levels to +45 at 100 Survival skill.

Whiskey Rose

Whiskey Rose is a perk provided while Cass is serving as a Companion in the player's party. With this perk the penalty to Intelligence for consuming any type of alcohol is eliminated, as are the effects of alcohol addiction. This perk also provides an additional bonus when consuming whiskey, providing a temporary 3-9 point increase (based on Survival skill level) to the player's Damage Threshold.
