I rarely touch booze so cannot speak with any authority, but suspect the
cost of that amount of Drambuie, if bought at UK pub/retail prices, would
more than pay your booze bill for a week. As with so many other things
we're taxed silly in the UK ~ a contibuting factor to why AOL are moving
their operation out of the UK to Luxembourg and why so many UK haulage
companies now operate from the Continent.
