Not to be confused with Recipe for Disaster.

Recipe for Distraction is a miscellaneous quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. After helping Captain Veleth with the Ash Spawn near Old Attius Farm, he will tell the Dragonborn about his soldiers getting drunk off something called Emberbrand Wine. They can then offer to help find the Emberbrand Wine stash for him.


Just past Severin Manor, on the left side path leading to the Earth Stone, the barrel containing the wine is found in the gap between the leveled houses. Return to Veleth after locating it to complete the task.
