Na­tional Lam­poon’s Christ­mas Va­ca­tion

The Scots Magazine - - Slàinte Mhath -

Clark Gris­wold wants to have a per­fect fam­ily Christ­mas. Things go awry quickly with un­ex­pected fam­ily ar­rivals, gaffers reneg­ing on a hol­i­day bonus and bone-crunch­ing sledg­ing ac­ci­dents. The clas­sic mo­ment for me is the Gris­wold’s Christ­mas light il­lu­mi­na­tions – daz­zling the neigh­bour­hood. It’s rem­i­nis­cent of Bom­bay Sap­phire, which, in the late 1980s, pro­vided the spark that would ig­nite a once-dry and dreary drink cat­e­gory. A blue bot­tle and ju­niper-light pro­file makes a thor­oughly de­cent gin. Here’s to good old Clark.

Bom­bay Sap­phire Gin, 70cl, ABV 40%, £20.95
