Since you brought it up ...Prawn cocktail crisps. They don't taste like prawn cocktail.

I've heard that Gordon's is 37.5% in the U.K., but tastes better than the Canadian-made 40% stuff we get in North America.Most spirits in the UK are "governed down" to 40% by volume. You can get the export strength though, around 45-50%, which is closer to what you get Stateside. It's not that stronger stuff is banned - you can get 75% rum or vodka relatively easily- but 40% is the standard pub and supermarket strength.
Yes, the UK version was reduced from 40% in 1992. It was resented by some tipplers, who swore it had deteriorated. The Wikipedia page confirms that the reduction in strength was a cost-cutting measure.I've heard that Gordon's is 37.5% in the U.K

Then let me drift a little more. Thinking of martinis and Vegas and James Bond makes me think of my first trip to Vegas - excluding a quick overnight trip to meet up with some online friends - in the early 2000s. The jet lag was making my companion (now my wife) sleepy, but I was feeling quite the opposite. I wandered over to the MGM Grand to play the slots for a while.Not a problem, I'm happy with it .
