No, Mekong whiskey doesn't contain any amphetamines, heroin, or any other added ingredients, although after a night of drinking it your head may tell you differently. It's a distilled spirit, produced in Thailand from rice and is wonderfully smooth and easy to drink. It's 70 proof (35% alcohol).
Mekong whiskey is celebrated in a song, "Sayonara" by Shane MacGowan, about an American soldier and a Thai hooker:
"Ooh she gave me Mekong Whiskey
Ooh she gave me Hong Kong Flu
Ooh she gave me Mekong Whiskey
Put me on a breeze to Katmandu..."
