Well good to know he's alive, but I'm gonna have to post tomorrow.
Anyway, what else Varis has? Not healing potions, so unless the 'no-magic' chunk means something now, I only have the poison, which might be useful now but was pointless when a crossbow was levelled at him across the room.
Still, we'll see where that gets us, I imagine.
Varis will have seen many people drink it in his travels, mainly middle-class, as it's a subtle and sweet taste. He will have met a bartender who will have explained the process of extracting the sap from the Botree, sieving the woodchips away and the fermentation process.
It's a similar strength to a very powerful beer, around the 9% alcohol (but of course they don't measure booze on Anchor).
EDIT: In fact, Karrain drank a mead on his arrival in the tavern at the beginning.
