    Both Dumbledore and Slughorn drink oak-matured mead. Fudge and Rosmerta both drink red currant rum. At one point the Weasleys drink elderflower wine together. Turnip Wine is mentioned in the Fantastic beast and where to find them textbook. Sherry is also drunk by a number of people, most prominently Trelawney. They also have some champagne at Bill's wedding.

    Otherwise if your okay with non-canon stuff, the wiki lists a number from places like videogames, the movies and the theme park.

    Do wizards have any means for mass production? I mean, if they have to enchant every single product personally it wouldn't go very fast, right? Also, if that is the case, are there minor differences between the same labeled products such as potions or brooms?

    Edit: adding more context.

    I guess my real question is how would it impact the economy as a whole, does it mean that prices are somewhat higher, and is the demand of the society satisfied? I've really no idea how it worked in the muggle world before the pre-industrial era.

    P.S. I haven't found any better thread to ask this

    What would have happened if Voldemort had gotten hold of the Philosopher's Stone in the first book? Would he get a body with a fractured soul like he had prior to 'death' or would the stone's magic give him a complete soul?

    He has a complete soul, it's just in pieces. He only wanted the Stone as a mechanism of restoring his body.

    Is there actually anything that suggests that Voldemort's body was never found?

    Like a lot of fanfic claim it, but I dont recall anything in Canon about this.

    How exactly was the winner of the Triwizard Tournament going to be decided?

    Senario A - Touching the Cup confers a set number of points (50 most likely), meaning that one could in theory get the Cup first and still lose, or

    Senario B - The points from the first two tasks determined order and timing for entering the Maze and that touching the Cup was the be all and end all, meaning that a competitor could grossly fail the first two tasks and still win.

    It's the second one. The text specifically mentions that Cedric and Harry are allowed to enter the maze at the same time, with Krum entering after them, and then Fleur.
